Is the North or South Island of New Zealand better to visit on a tour?
For any traveller coming to New Zealand, which Island to visit is always something to be carefully considered. You will want to see as much as possible of this fantastic, diverse and magical country. In such a small country as New Zealand there's plenty to see and its spread pretty evenly over both islands. This can make the decision of which to choose on a shorter time frame really hard. Ideally you'd travel to both islands at your leisure on one of our national tours. That, of course, may not fit everyones time or budget.
We recommend if you have less than three weeks to travel to New Zealand, trying to fit both Islands in will be too rushed. So take your time and enjoy all the good things about one of the Islands...and start planning your next visit.
