Dream trip to New Zealand in 2022?

Amanda Dwyer

I've been dreaming of going to New Zealand for so long! We booked a trip to go 8 years ago but then I got pregnant and had some complications early on so we had to cancel the trip. It will happen one of these years!! Hard to pick just 11 sites for now.

  • Waitomo Glowworm Caves

    Sounds super cool!

  • The Gathering Place (Tamaki Maori Village)

    A fun dinner event, perhaps a little similar to a luau

    December 12, 2021
  • Rotorua

    Great stop for doing some fun things nearby like the Maori Village and seeing the glow worms

    December 12, 2021
  • Wellington

    Seems like a fun little town and good stopping off point for the North Island.

  • Wanaka

    If we go during their winter, it might be fun to try some skiing in the southern hemisphere!

  • Milford Sound / Piopiotahi

    Another highly recommended spot to visit

  • Marlborough

    Can't miss out on visiting some vineyards! I love me some good Sauvignon Blanc.

    December 12, 2021
  • Abel Tasman National Park

    Lots of amazing looking national parks to visit here!

    December 12, 2021
  • Franz Josef Glacier

    Would be amazing to see via helicopter!

    December 12, 2021
  • Punakaiki

    The pancake rock formations have been recommended to us by many people

    December 12, 2021
  • Aoraki / Mount Cook

    This place looks amazing!

    December 12, 2021
  • Lord of the Rings Tours

    I feel like if you're all the way over there, may as well take a Lord of the Rings tour!

    Fly into Queenstown to start my adventure
