Reason One to Honeymoon in New Zealand:
No prizes for guessing what most honeymooners usually state as their main reason for planning a honeymoon in New Zealand: the scenery. From jaw-dropping World Heritage sites and pristine National Parks to world-renowned landscapes and stunning locations recognizable from The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit blockbusters, a lot of honeymooners have fairly strong preconceived convictions that their honeymoon in New Zealand is going to provide plenty of special photo backdrops.
However, what takes a lot of New Zealand honeymooners by surprise is that those preconceived ideas are only a snippet of what’s on offer to them after they start their New Zealand honeymoon. Because beyond the best-known tourist attractions and most recognizable sights, New Zealand is loaded with hidden gems and pleasant surprises for a romantic escape.
For every top-shelf attraction you’ve seen in honeymoon brochures or online, the diversity of New Zealand’s scenery means that there’s also (almost) always a quieter, equally beautiful alternative – with smaller crowds. These make for endless options for cuddling up in the remote wilderness together, soaking up sublime landscapes from a secluded hot spring, or finding your own private beach and loveshack, where the rest of the world can’t get in.
