New Zealand is the perfect place for adrenaline and activity, and there’s nowhere in the country more suited to that than the South Island. On this two week trip, cover the ground (or water) by sea kayak, boat, bike, and on foot. Explore Abel Tasman National Park, cruise along the waters of Milford Sound, and take two wheels through the trails around Mt Cook. If you’re not out of breath just from reading all that, then it’s time to start packing.
