South Island

The South Island is our favorite island in New Zealand. We’ve taken countless road trips and even lived in Queenstown, so we’re big advocates for exploring all the South Island has to offer.

From adventure sports in Queenstown to hiking in Mount Cook National Park, to kayaking on Milford Sound, the South Island is perfect for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

After traveling around the South Island for over a year, we want to help others get to know how amazing this region is. We’ve grouped the below blogs by places and attractions so you can start making your own plans to visit this stunning part of New Zealand.
