New Zealand is a country of rare seismic beauty: glacial mountains, fast-flowing rivers, deep, clear lakes, hissing geysers and boiling mud. There are also abundant native forests, long, deserted beaches and a variety of fauna, such as the kiwi, endemic to its shores. Any number of vigorous outdoor activities - tramping (hiking), skiing, rafting and, of course, that perennial favourite, bungy jumping - await the adventurous. You can swim with dolphins, gambol with newborn lambs, whale-watch or fish for fattened trout in pristine streams and rivers.

Wed, 8 May 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

We've enjoyed this drive since our first visit to NZL in 2005. However, we have noticed that the trees, bushes, and other vegetation have grown up to the point where almost all of view to the Marlborough Sound is obscured (except for a few widely scattered ... Read more >

This is one of our FAVORITE NZL activities! We rode the train during our previous visit and were eager to repeat the experience. There were plenty of folks on the train despite the cool autumn weather ... probably because our execursion was on the weekend.... Read more >

Photos: Doubtful Sound Cruise

Tue, 30 Apr 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

Since we had cruised Milford Sound on our previous trip to NZL, we wanted to see what Doubtful Sound had to offer. Scenery was wonderful as ever and the trip to the Sound included both boat and bus excursions. We also appreciated the fact that the sand ... Read more >

Photos: Alexandra Sunrise

Sat, 27 Apr 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

We enjoyed many spectacular sunrises throughout our stay in New Zealand. The dawn here in Alexandra was more sudden that the gradual sunrises in Taupo and Nelson. But the clouds were just as colorful ... as you can see by the accompanying photos.

Kent rode a bicycle on a portion of the Otago Rail Trail, a cycle track laid on the abandoned railway bed in the Otago region. There are several tour operators for the Otago Rail Trail, but there are none better than Bike It Now. Whether a novice or enthusiast, ... Read more >

Photos: Alexandra Morning

Tue, 23 Apr 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

We wanted to get the full perspective on Alexandra, so we ventured out the morning after we took our PM photos (not too early -- it was the middle of autumn after all!) to see what Alexandra had to offer from the opposite ridge.

Mon, 22 Apr 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

Alexandra had stunning autumn colors. In fact, it's one of the few places in New Zealand with deciduous trees that provide such a colorful landscape.

Wed, 17 Apr 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

We visited the Skywire at Cable Bay Adventure Park (https://www.cablebayadventurepark.com). It was very different from zipline since we were strapped into a 4-person carriage with individual 5-point harness connections. We zipped down 800 meters in free ... Read more >

Mon, 15 Apr 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

The day after our whale watch, we walked around the Kaikoura peninsula before driving back to Nelson. It was a great opportunity to stretch our legs and explore new territory before the 4-hour trip to Nelson.
