Otago, rich in wild coasts, rare sealife and quaint towns, is well worth a leisurely sojourn. The province is less visited than some, allowing the opportunity to really unwind.
However you may be forced to rush from place to place – there’s a lot to see.
Further south, Fiordland National Park, at the foot of the South Island, is a true jewel amongst New Zealand’s scenic areas. With towering peaks dropping dramatically to secluded fiords, Fiordland is a world heritage area and a favourite destination for overseas visitors.
