A tour of the islands of New Zealand that you should know

Island Mou Waho Wanaka New Zealand

New Zealand a fantasy adventure

New Zealand is a dream destination; However, many times it is only in that because it sounds like a very distant country to which it is expensive to go. And it’s true; however, it is worth the effort, save and work a little more to dare to cross the Pacific Ocean.

New Zealand is a small country, comparable in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of four million inhabitants, it is considered the most peaceful nation in the world and recognized for its respect for the original culture, the Maori, as well as for being the preferred destination for filmmakers to record in their vast and majestic landscapes.

The five most stunning islands in New Zealand

Virtually, the following five islands are part of those landscapes: they are shocking and inescapable for any visitor who is encouraged to endure all the flight hours it will take to get to New Zealand

Kapiti Island: Wellington

Creating a place where endangered species can thrive again has also created an exceptional experience for the small number of people who can visit Kapiti Island every day.

The Kapiti Island nature reserve is ten kilometers long and two kilometers wide. Visitor numbers are strictly limited, access is only by licensed launch and a landing permit is required from your tour operator.

Kapiti Island is a birdwatcher’s paradise, home to a large number of endangered and native bird species, including päteke, takahe, miromiro, kokako, thieke, weka and toutouwai. If you stay at the lodge on the island through a licensed operator, you may be lucky enough to find the most famous nocturnal bird in the country: the kiwi.

Mou Waho Island Wanaka

Where is Mou Waho Island and why should I visit? One of the only five islands of Lake Wanaka and perhaps one of the most exclusive islands of lakes in New Zealand. Accessible only by boat from Wanaka, this is one of the most beautiful regions of New Zealand, but there is also much more to Mou Waho, which makes it essential for anyone interested in conservation. There are so many things that make this little island so special.

This island has been described as an “island on a lake on an island in a lake on an island”, which is another way of saying that Mou Waho, located on Lake Wanaka, on the South Island of New Zealand, has its own lake (called Arethusa Pool) with an island inside. Spend a day alone exploring the trails and waterfalls of this island of 140 hectares, keeping your eyes open for weka birds.

Urupukapuka: Bay of Islands

With 144 islands, Bay of Islands is loved by sailors and sailors. The largest island of the group, Urupukapuka, can be reached by ferry. A place known for its immaculate beaches and an impressive population of native birds, such as the plover carambolo.

Urupukapuka Island has a long history, both Maori and European. Visitors to the island will discover wonderful beaches, historical and archaeological walks, snorkeling, kayak rentals, a restaurant, a bar and much more.

Explore the island’s stunning beaches on foot or by kayak and enjoy quiet deserted beaches and crystal clear waters, or visit the ancient Maori sites. Climb the slight slope for about 10 minutes to enjoy the 360-degree views of the many islands scattered across the bay. You can also sit and enjoy the view and hospitality in Otehei Bay, near the beautiful beach.

Urupukapuka Island has been protected as a recreational reserve since 1970 and is the only island in the bay that is open and accessible to the public.

 

Great Barrier Island: Auckland

A 30 minute flight from Auckland, the Great Barrier Island of 285 square kilometers, a population of almost a thousand people and no ATM, impresses with its natural beauty, spectacular surfing beaches, endless walking trails and a dark sky sanctuary that seems from another planet.

The Great Barrier Island is the largest and most inland sea island of the Hauraki Gulf islands in the Auckland region. For thousands of years, it has protected the gulf from the untiring waves of the caprichore, and a paradise for navigation has been created there.

The eastern shore of Great Barrier Island faces the ocean with high cliffs and a long line of white-washed beaches. The western coast offers protected harbors and deep and calm sandy bays.

Mokoia Island: Rotorua

With only 1.35 square kilometers, this island is actually a rhyolitic lava dome that rises 180 meters above Lake Rotorua. As it is sacred to the Maori people, their access is limited. In addition to bird watching, visitors can snorkel in the famous Hinemoa’s Bath heated pool.

Visits to the island of Mokoia come with a built-in touch. Not only informative, the spooky trip back on a Kawarau Jet boat is very fun. Prepare to be captivated, shaken by the wind and quite likely, wet.
