We went to the South Island of New Zealand with our travel operator during the Christmas to New Year's vacation time period. Views, atmosphere, fresh air, excellent scenery, comfortable lifestyle, the happy faces of everyone in our small group, kindness, integrity, and authenticity were all there on our trip.
Each part of the tour was unforgettable. But if we have to choose, then it would be: Mount Cook outlook from the hotel - it was simply possibly the most amazing view you could have from a luxurious hotel room of an alpine peak in the planet. And the second recall would be traveling by small aircraft from Milford Sounds to Queenstown on a bright day! - simply exceptional!
We had an incredible vacation. There is everything to like. Amazing landscape, charming people, lots to do and a nation that is capable of sustaining the environment. Hard to pick most remarkable....both my hubby and I did a horse trek and we loved it. Then arriving on a glacier in a ski plane was outstanding. Can't overlook the amazing people we met everywhere, they made the journey extra-ordinary! My own ideal place was Arthur's Pass at the Wilderness Lodge. Just the show and tranquility was sufficient, add the staff and the joy of trekking and exploring at leisure and it was heaven.
