Let’s face it, not everyone heading to New Zealand will have the option to spend a month or two quietly idling the days away in Hobbit country; some will be more strapped for time. Though it is possible to cover both the South and North islands in a couple of weeks, if you’re not one for moving every day, sitting on enumerable buses for hours at a time and generally getting yourself into a bit of a tizz, you might find that choosing one or the other is your best bet.
But the problem is, which one? Never fear intrepid, time short traveller, here we pick out some well-known and less famous highlights from the two main Islands that make up New Zealand to help with your decision making. Don’t say we never do anything for you.

But you’d be wrong. Read on for examples of Kiwis taking pole position…and how you can be a part of their winning ways.
In February 2013 Karl Watson and James Walsh quit their jobs and headed off on a 9 month, 20 country, epic adventure around the world! Luckily for us they took a camera with them and their awesome video is now featured on our YouTube channel.
