While beeing in New Zealand, we stayed for a few days in Queenstown, on the South Island. The South Island is so much different from the North Island and extremely mountainy. Queenstown is one of the most visited cities in NZ and it offers so many places to travel around. Even just a round trip around the Lake Wakatipu offers more than you could imagine. And going up with the gondola to a viewpoint offers one of the most amazing views i've ever seen.
