Ski fans usually frequent its two great ski resorts, and it’s also a great place for jet boating, skydiving and river surfing among others.

Its lakes are said to mirror the surrounding islands, cliffs and tall peaks.

And then you have the glaciers of the West Coast that are really slow moving rivers, another example of the amazing beauty that is characteristic of South Island.

A South Island vacation will leave you relaxed and re-energized. It’s an experience you will never forget.
