10 photos that will make you want to drive New Zealand’s South Island

This is SUCH a bucketlist activity! I’d recommend spending at least a month driving New Zealand’s South Island. It’s stunning and there’s so much to see and do.

I’ve blogged all about my road trip, you can read all about it, but I wanted to let the photos speak for themselves – and hopefully inspire you to go. I’ve got so many highlights of amazing places to go, it was really hard to narrow down to my top 10, but here they are:

New Zealand has so much natural beauty – all these photos were just taken on an iPhone 6, and so don’t really give the places true justice. You really should see them for yourself!

I’d really recommend hiring a car, or a camper and planning your own New Zealand road trip. It gives you so much flexibility to set your own itinerary and really see what the country has to offer.
