Described by Rudyard Kipling as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’, it’s no wonder that Milford Sound is at the top of this list. Milford Sound is one of the most beautiful places in the world, from the moment you head into the valley along Te Anau, leading to the main event, you’ll find yourself amazed at the sights ahead of you. Misty mountains and mirror lakes line the pathway leading to this iconic Fiordland. And as for the main event, book yourself on a boat trip and see the views for yourself. Cruise along the serene waters and gaze up at the towering mountain peaks above, feel the icy cold waters as they thunder down, and capture that all-important photo while you’re there.
This South Island adventure town is Instagram-worthy on every corner. It’s something out of a dream: the town backs onto Lake Wakatipu, with a mountain range surrounding it. This means that wherever you look, there is a gorgeous view waiting to be pictured. Perhaps take a walk around Lake Wakatipu to capture the mountains from a different angle? A great way to get that perfect Instagram is if there are spots of low cloud: it really shows just how high the mountains are when the clouds don’t even reach the top. Or head up to Bob’s Peak Summit for that iconic panorama from high above. But, if there’s one thing for sure, from sunrise to sunset, Queenstown is a picture-perfect town.
