​25 BEST PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES IN NEW ZEALAND

​New Zealand is easily one of the most photogenic places in the world, so much so that it is often hard to put the camera down. From mountains to lakes to glaciers to wild, far-stretching coastlines, New Zealand really is a photographers dream. However, it’s not only the incredible landscapes that make Aotearoa such a great place to photograph. We are also home to some of the world’s best adventure activities, as well some awesome and quirky small towns that for one particular reason are ‘World Famous…in New Zealand’.

If you’re travelling around Aotearoa, here is a list of what we think are 25 of the most iconic photo opportunities, all of which you can visit on the Kiwi Ex bus! Obviously, this list is probably missing a few as there is so much in the New Zealand to see and explore, so feel free to let us know some of your favs that we’ve missed!
