New Zealand's Most Picturesque Places

New Zealand is a land of diversity, filled with dramatic landscapes and stunning coastlines. It is so varied that it can be difficult to know where to start – here are just some of the most picturesque places where you can get ‘snap happy’.

1. Fiordland National Park

One of the most dramatic parts of New Zealand. This remarkable natural environment features stunning fiords and granite peaks that look the same today as they did a thousand years ago.

2. Milford Sound

Milford Sound is a fusion of spectacular natural features around every corner. The fiord's cliffs rise vertically from the dark waters, mountain peaks scrape the sky and waterfalls cascade downwards.

3. Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is known for its stunning beauty & history. Take a trip to Cape Brett and the ‘Hole in the Rock’ on Piercy Island. On land, enjoy beautiful walking tracks or encounter the mighty Kauri trees.

4. Tongariro National Park

See the Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu volcanoes and some of New Zealand's most contrasting landscapes.


5. Rotorua

In Rotorua, feel the heat underfoot from landscapes that hiss with steam as the scent of sulphur wafts through the air and see geysers of boiling water roar from the ground.

6. Fox and Franz Josef Glacier

Witness the puzzle of huge valleys of ice that extend almost to the sea. The temperate climate at this low altitude means these glaciers are among the most convenient to visit in the world.

7. Abel Tasman National Park

Here, sandy beaches fill the spaces between trees and tide line. Crystal clear streams tumble down valleys to the ocean. Marble formations fringe the headlands, which are cloaked in native forest.

8. Mount Cook

The tallest mountain in New Zealand and located in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. With sky-scraping peaks and snow fields. Here, you can perfect your hiking and skiing skills in a stunning environment.

9. Coromandel 

Renowned for its pristine beaches, misty forests and laid-back vibe is everything that a big city isn’t. With a mountainous interior and more than 400 kilometres of dazzling white sand beaches.
