8) South Island, New Zealand
South Island in New Zealand is a top pick for active folks who don’t want to laze on a beach. Built for a more rugged type of vacation, South Island is a perfect match for hard-core adventurers. The great outdoors of South Island is among some of the most pristine in the world and most of your time should be spent enjoying it. Experience nature’s best by trekking around Mount Cook, walking or boating around Fiordland National Park, and biking or kayaking the Marlborough Sounds. Adrenaline junkies can get their fix in Queenstown, the hub of activities like bungy jumping, white water rafting, skydiving and river surfing. South Island also has a softer side. If you feel like you need a day off from heart-pumping plunges and trekking, head to the Central Otago and visit some of New Zealand’s best wineries. They’re famous for their Pinot Noir!
