Wanderable has teamed up with uber-cool tour guide, Time 2 Go, to bring you curated New Zealand itineraries for your honeymoon. It’s time to navigate New Zealand!
We’re writing today to illuminate you on one of our (new) absolute favorite places ever. New Zealand can be something of an enigma to Americans– even to us. We mostly knew of it through its unbelievably prolific music scene – evidenced by our recent travel playlist – and our affliction for the Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit films.
Full disclosure: before we met the Time 2 Go team, we basically only thought of Gandolf when we thought of New Zealand. But there is SO MUCH more to this place than just Middle Earth. (Don’t believe us? Check out this BuzzFeed post) We’ve worked with this incredible travel specialists to create three customized itineraries for our Wanderable couples that totally capture the heart and soul of New Zealand. To get you just as excited as we are, there is even a special giveaway for the first couple that starts their NZ registry! So, read on, Wanderers… #itsTime2Go!
The first NZ itinerary stops in some of New Zealand’s most lively cities and beautiful towns. In In Queenstown (otherwise known as heaven on earth), you’ll wake up and tour the lakes and mountains in the sun, get photos with your loved one that look like they’re photoshopped, and then cool down just in time for the sunset, where you can soak in the famous Onsen Hot Pools and let your muscles melt!
For the first Wanderable couple that books with Time 2 Go, a dip into these magical hot pools is free! New Zealanders are generous folks.
But whether you crave the adrenaline from the world’s highest cliff jump, the magic of touching an ancient glacier in Glacier Country, or simply the relaxing travel through Marlborough on a coastal pacific train, you will find this itinerary bursting with unforgettable activities throughout New Zealand.
The next itinerary by Time 2 Go features a roster of cities from Waikato to Wellington City to the Bay of Plenty and everywhere in between. What you’ll find at each stop is varied (like the level of cuteness of the Hobbits) with activities ranging from a peaceful tour through ethereal and world-famous glowworm caves to a wine and food tour fit for foodies.
On our third itinerary, you’ll find relaxing thermal pools in Hanmer Springs, cage diving with great white sharks off of Stewart Island, or touching thousand-year-old glaciers in South Canterbury. I mean, seriously– there is something for everyone. Feel free to mix and match; the world, well at least New Zealand, is your oyster!
Allow us to conclude our brief gushing with some other lesser-known facts about our new favorite place. The longest place name in the world is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, a hill in Hawkes Bay. Pretty cool, right?
So bring it on, winter months. We’ll just be over here, day dreaming about New Zealand, where it’s summertime. Guys…#ItsTime2Go.
