Family Travel – Must Visit Places in NZ

New Zealand mountains

New Zealand offers a wide range of climates and regions, making it a popular travel destination for people from all over the world. The modern amenities that the country has to offer make it a great place to go if you are travelling with your family. Below are a number of things that you should do before you leave this beautiful island.

1. See the Franz Josef Glacier

Glaciers are an incredible thing to see in this day and age, and New Zealand has an excellent example on the South Island. The glacier is slowly coming down the valley, but the climate is warm enough that you can walk out to it in shorts, passing a waterfall on the way. You will not see how big it really is until you get to the base, where you can climb it with a guide if you would like. You can learn more about the glacier at this website: http://www.franzjosefglacier.com.

2. Tour Cadbury World
Have you ever tasted the rich milk chocolate of a Cadbury bar? If so, how would you like to see the place where the chocolate is made? Cadbury World is located in Dunedin, New Zealand, and it is the factory where the chocolate comes from. You can buy as many bars as you would like in the gift shop, have your picture taken, and tour the whole factory to see how the process works. For children, being in a chocolate factory will be a dream come true. Check out http://www.cadbury.co.nz/ for more info.

3. Go to Milford Sound

Located in Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is an amazing sight. The water stretches clean and clear in all directions, with green hills and cliffs seeming to spring up from it. While taking a boat tour, you will really feel like you have been transported to another planet.
