An island renowned for its natural beauty, New Zealand’s South Island is blessed with beautiful lakes, winding rivers, rolling forests and rugged mountains. Majestic wildnerness abounds in this part of New Zealand, and is a favourite amongst nature lovers… and wine lovers!
Use our range of Abel Tasman accommodation to explore one of the island’s ten national parks, the Abel Tasman. The beauty of this national park will surely leave you stunned! Or if you’d like to explore drowned river valleys, then Milford Sound and Fiordland are the places for you… particularly the natural beauty of the 22-kilometer long Milford Sound.
You can then go from the deepest of valleys, to the highest of mountains… well, the highest mountain in New Zealand, Mount Cook, with our range of Aoraki/Mount Cook accommodation. Alternatively, why not explore the West Coast, and use either our Franz Josef Glacier accommodation or our Fox Glacier Accommodation to explore the word’s most low-lying glaciers.
If wine is more your thing, then a stay in our Nelson hotels is exactly what the doctor ordered, allowing you to partake of the particularly fine and stylish Nelson wines; or our Marlborough hotels, where you can taste the sauvignon blancs for which the region is renowned.
If you’re looking for slightly larger cities to stay in, then try our range of Christchurch hotels and accommodation, which are conveniently placed throughout the South Island’s largest city; or perhaps our range of Dunedin hotels, which allow you to explore the second largest centre on the island, and soak in its Scottish heritage.
Of course, for the adventure conscious amongst us, no trip to the South Island would be complete without a stay in Queenstown, New Zealand’s adventure capital and the birthplace of bungy. With jetboating, skiing and whitewater rafting on offer, you’ll be all the more grateful for our range of Queenstown hotels and accommodation, which are ideally situated to put you in the heart of all the action.
For those after a slightly more laid-back experience, then check out our range of Hanmer Springs hotels; this alpine spa town is home to some of the country's most picturesque outdoor thermal springs. Or perhaps browse our Kaikoura hotels: once a sleepy fishing village, the area has now become a mecca for whale watchers and dolphin lovers in New Zealand.
