The Best things to do in New Zealand

Here at House of Coco, we love New Zealand. Not just because of its stunning beauty but because of the endless list of things that you can do. Whether you are spending a year on a backpacking mission or looking for somewhere to spend your gap year, New Zealand has it all.

If you’re planning a trip over the pond anytime soon, then you will want to know about what you can do whilst you’re in town. If being on the road is something that you love then this is a great place to hire a camper van and get lost. If you’re more about adventure then this NZ will have your adrenaline souring with endless activities to get stuck in to. Chilling next to an active volcano is something you can do too, but that’s not for the faint hearted.

Whatever floats your boat, we have put together a mini guide to help you kick start your time in New Zealand with a bang. 

Go wild in the casinos 

There are a lot of online casinos in New Zealand so you can be sure to while away a lot of hours, and money, getting carried away with the options. Now, the interesting thing is that Kiwi law says that it is illegal to gamble at any online casino based in NZ but players that are of the legal age can play online at any casino based outside of the country. 

Get lost in nature 

Kayaking, water sports and hiking are up there with the must do activities when in town due to the stunning beauty that you will see everywhere. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can hire a car and go on a road trip in New Zealand and you will see some incredible animals along the journey too if you are brave enough to venture off of the beaten track. Wherever you look you can guarantee a little but of Insta heaven with gram worthy shots wherever you look. Nature in NZ is unspoilt and magical, be sure to set aside time to get lost and reconnect with yourself. 

Prepare for luxury 

New Zealand and luxury go hand in hand, you will have to make sure you set aside the budget to take full advantage of the luxury things to do. From fine dining in the top restaurants to staying in some of the most extravagant hotels and villas, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to luxury. If you are looking to make new friends along the way then don’t forget to get a working visa so that you can stay in town for a little bit longer and make those life changing connections.
