Itinerary: South Island, NZ

South Island, New Zealand

Our New Zealand trip started out on the beautiful South Island. It was difficult not to fall in love with the rapidly changing scenery that kept every drive exciting. When we return to New Zealand, I know we will spend significantly more time exploring the South Island- there is so much more to see! This itinerary gave us a good taste of what the South Island has to offer and we can’t wait for the next trip.
