Now Is the Time to Visit New Zealand

Winter is coming — to the Northern Hemisphere—but in the Southern Hemi, summer is just around the corner and that’s why Grind TV has just provided us with several reasons New Zealand is the perfect place to visit right now.

First on their list of reasons, Abel Tasman National Park. 

“An oddly sub-tropical wonderland of pristine beaches, azure waters and fairytale islands, Abel Tasman on the northwest corner of the South Island is a vision. While you can do day hikes, camp, boat tour or do longer treks throughout the park, one of the best ways to experience Abel Tasman is by kayak-trekking,” says Grind TV. 

Milford Sound is another spectacular New Zealand sight. 

“Deep down in the mystical, silvery waters of the South Island is the Milford Sound, one of the many Pacific fjord-lands that stretch inland from the sea. Besides one of the most epic views and day tours (by boat) around, you can also explore Milford Sound by kayak rental, by foot, or even by SUP-trekking,” recommends Grind TV.

Next, head underground to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves.

“On a four-hour subterranean excursion involving repelling, zip-lining, hiking, inner-tubing, swimming and sliding — all beneath a constellation of glowworm lights — the activities underground in Waitomo on the North Island are utterly unforgettable,” says Grind TV.
