New Zealand Travel Blog Posts

I had just one month to travel around New Zealand, and for the life of me I couldn’t decide the best itinerary to make the most of it. That’s when I decided to leave it to the experts and join a guided tour.

Enter Stray Travel, New Zealand’s premier tour company.

Day one of a 3 week tour, I left my Auckland hostel and stepped into a van full of strangers. 21 days later, I stepped out of that van for the last time, my life changed.

During that time, I saw some incredible sights, experienced numerous adventures, and met wonderful people who I will probably remain friends with for life.

Why Should You Travel to New Zealand?

New Zealand — the adventure capital of the world. With everything from bungee jumping and zorbing to skydiving and blackwater rafting, you’ll probably get get a rush of adrenaline when you travel to New Zealand; if not from the adventure sports, then most definitely from the seemingly endless natural beauty.

While the North Island boasts the capital city of Auckland, the South Island prides itself for being home to New Zealand’s tallest mountain, Mt. Cook.

But which island should you visit on your New Zealand trip? My personal recommendation… both.
