We had such an adventurous trip. My two kids (9 and 6) and my husband and I wanted to get as much out of our 16 day trip as possible and we did. In Queenstown, we travelled to Milford Sound via plane and did a cruise of the fjords. The entire trip was priceless and well worth the money spent. In Queenstown we stayed at The Rees Hotel. It was an amazing place and I highly recommend. While in Queenstown, we also took the gondola up and did the luge, we went jet boating at Shotover Jetboats and enjoyed the city. Queenstown will always be so memorable because the place is gorgeous everywhere and so fun! Other than Queenstown, Mt. Cook stands out because of it’s beauty. We took a helicopter ride on top of the glacier and were just awestruck by the scenery. Finally, Rotorua was an place of great adventure too. We had a blast zip lining, going to the Agrodome, Ogo’ing and doing the Maori Cultural Experience. Rotorua is full of adventure and a top spot on our trip. We ended our trip up north in Oakura Bay and Auckland. The beach was gorgeous and we loved checking out the city. Overall, we had an amazing time as a family of four exploring both the north and South Island of NZ!
