Must-Visit Attractions in New Zealand
It is surreal how beautiful New Zealand is, like a movie set that came into life. There are rainforests, snow-capped peaks, coastal glaciers, fjords, and rivers that you can explore. Along with these comes adrenaline-fueled sports. Thanks to the country’s topography, you can enjoy jet boating, heli-skiing, skydiving, white water rafting, hiking, and mountain biking. The country’s bungee jumping is world-famous as it is one of the highest in the world.

Traveling around New Zealand while studying abroad is a worthwhile and relaxing journey. You can do self-drive vacations, check in to lodging options, and indulge in delicious foods.

Below are some of the top places you can go to in New Zealand:

Fiordland National Park and Milford Sound

The Fiordland National Park conserves some of the country’s most spectacular sceneries. It is a World Heritage Site wherein the glaciers have sculpted the landscape along with the fjords of Dusky, Milford, and Doubtful Sounds.

The park is a favorite for hikers as it has some of the best hiking tracks in the country, such as the famous Milford Track. Visitors can enjoy sea kayaking to see the fjords.

Bay of Islands

If you like island hopping, you can go to the beautiful Bay of Islands which is a very popular destination for vacation in the country. Your three-hour drive north of Auckland is worth it as you can see more than 144 islands, ranging from outcrops to inhabited ones. This place is a haven for people who love to yacht and sail.

In the waters, you can have the chance to see penguins, whales, dolphins, and marlins. Sea kayaking is a common activity along the coast, as well as hiking the island trails and touring the Cape Brett and the Hole in the Rock, a famous rock formation.


Located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, Rotorua is one of the world’s most active geothermal regions. Hissing geysers, volcanic craters, mud pools, steaming thermal springs. These are some of the natural attractions in this region.

Walking tours can be done by visitors and also soaking in mineral springs. Those who are adventure seekers can try mountain biking, sky-diving, and luging. Trout fishing is a popular activity, too. You can even visit interesting attractions to further learn about the Maori culture and history.


Queenstown is the country’s adventure capital and a top destination for tourists. A lot of outdoor activities can be enjoyed like jet boating, white water rafting, bungee jumping, rock climbing, paragliding, downhill skiing, and a lot more. Exploring the alpine scenery is one thing that you shouldn’t miss.

Along with the adventure, Queenstown also offers comfort with its first-class spas, hotels, restaurants, shops, and galleries. If you want to go to the Central Otago region, Queenstown is a great base for the trip. Here, you can enjoy seeing gold-mining towns and the famous Middle Earth landscape from Lord of the Rings.
