NORTH ISLAND 

1. Cathedral Cove

Cathedral Cove, located in the Coromandel Peninsula, is a picture frame created by nature. Looking at the ocean and standing under the rock feels like entering paradise. Visit the cove to take the most beautiful pictures ever or to just sit and enjoy the sunset. This place helps you to take a breather and get rid of school stress while creating peaceful memories to last for the rest of your life.

Early evening is the best time to visit the cove if you want to keep away from the crowd.

2. Lake Taupo

This beautiful lake lies about 200km from Palmerston North. Lake Taupo is located by one of the most popular hikes in NZ, Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Lake Taupo’s surrounding views with mountains in the horizon are just stunning, especially during sunrise or sunset. A visit there is an absolute must when in New Zealand!

3. Tararua Forest Park

Not far from Palmerston North you can find Tararua Forest Park. It is a great place to witness some natural New Zealand landscapes. Breathe fresh outdoor air and take a short or long walk in these magnificent views. It’s perfect for making your classmates jealous by posting some awesome pictures on Instagram!

SOUTH ISLAND 

4. Milford Sound

Even the name, Milford Sound, is so beautiful and calming. The beauty of this location can already be felt when starting your journey there along New Zealand highway 94, one of the coolest roads ever. Once you get to Milford Sound and take the boat cruise, it will take your breath away: Mountains, crystal clear water and waterfalls. It’s pure magic and probably the most beautiful place you’ve ever been to. It’s not called the real gem of New Zealand for no reason.

Milford Sound is definitely one of New Zealand’s most spectacular natural attractions.

5. Roy’s Peak

Roy’s Peak is a hiking track located in the beautiful area of Wanaka. This quite challenging yet rewarding hike will lead you to the top of the world (or at least it will feel like it). Enjoy the moment and the views as they are pretty spectacular. See how the landscape just continues on and on, how the rivers swirl between the mountains and the sun sets into the horizon. The feeling of holding your best friend’s hand while standing on the edge of Roy’s Peak is just pure magic.  

A spectacular view over the beautiful area of Wanaka.
Roy’s Peak is 1,578 m high and gives you breathtaking views over Lake Wanaka.
