Our US West Coast road trip itinerary

Planning your US West Coast road trip itinerary may be a bit challenging. Check our guide how to plan a perfect route.

Planning the US West Coast road trip itinerary IS a challenge. There are so many amazing attractions but within long distances. However, we managed to visit four states in less than 3 weeks: California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. We started in Los Angeles, but of course, you can customize the entire route to take off in eg. San Francisco. Let’s see how our West Coast road trip itinerary looked like.

Visiting Glacier Country – Franz Josef or Fox Glacier?

Franz Josef or Fox Glacier - are you wondering how they differ? Which one should you visit? Check our experiences in Glacier Country, NZ.

Franz Josef or Fox Glacier? Which one to choose? Our plans for visiting the Westland National Park were (as usual!) very ambitious… Of course, we had to visit both 🙂 New Zealand glaciers are one of the country’s greatest attractions, next to a kiwi bird and spectacular fjords. Even, if your time is limited and you have to pick only one glacier, you still can’t miss this place.

Discovering majestic Fiordland – top things to do

Milford Sound cruise definitely should be on your bucket list. But what else you should do to explore Fiordland better?

What do you think when you hear “fjords”? Most likely – Norway. But did you know that you can also find them down under? The South Island in New Zealand is home to the magical Fiordland National Park. Many believe that this is actually the most beautiful region in this country. We found our beloved place somewhere else, however, Fiordland, particularly Milford Sound and Lake Te Anau, left us speechless.

Things to do in Catlins – the most beautiful region in New Zealand

things to do in catlins - catlins attractions

Things to do in Catlins are so amazing and really unique, but usually, tourists skip this region. While Rotorua and the Fiordland are rather crowded places, we didn’t meet tons of people visiting Catlins attractions. On the other hand, also not many kiwis live here permanently – only around 1200 people. That’s a pity! The Catlins, located in the south of the South Island, is just loaded with spectacular landscapes, wonders of nature and unique animals! We still haven’t decided, but I think the Catlins attractions make it the most beautiful region we visited in New Zealand… Look at the pics below and decide yourself!

Another point was added to our trip. But do they actually look so magical?

Things to do in Rotorua – the geothermal capital of New Zealand

things to do in rotorua

Things to do in Rotorua are both so various and amazing that I’m glad that due to the weather conditions we had to stay here longer. Sincerely, I must admit that our New Zealand trip didn’t start as planned. Due to the huge rainfall, we couldn’t reach our first attraction – the Hot Water Beach, because all the roads were closed. After a quick glance at the map, we decided that we would spend two days (instead of one as planned) in Rotorua – this turned out to be the brilliant idea!

Where sequoias reach the sky. What to see in Sequoia National Park?

What to see in Sequoia National Park

I never saw a Big Tree that had died a natural death. Barring accidents they seem to be immortal, being exempt from all diseases that afflict and kill other trees. Unless destroyed by man, they live on indefinitely until burned, smashed by lightning, or cast down by storms, or by the giving way of the ground on which they stand.” wrote John Muir. He was also known as John of the Mountains, as he dedicated all his life to the Sierra Nevada Mountains. His efforts contributed to the creation of Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks and many other protected areas. What to see in Sequoia National Park?
