South Is­land, New Zealand

New Zealand’s South Is­land is the op­ti­mal va­ca­tion spot for ac­tive fam­i­lies who get a high from fresh air and oth­er­worldly scenery. Spend a few days along the north­ern tip kayak­ing through Abel Tas­man Na­tional Park, sip­ping Sauvi­gnon Blanc in the Marl­bor­ough wine re­gion (for the 18-plus crowd) and cozy­ing up at Honey­well Hut, a one-room cabin on a sheep farm in Motueka. To­ward the cen­tre of the is­land, Lake Pukaki—a back­drop in the Lord of the Rings and Hob­bit films— has vast walk­ing and cy­cling trails, while Mil­ford Sound, with its inky wa­ters sur­rounded by moun­tains, wa­ter­falls and rain­forests, is the per­fect spot for a boat tour farther south.
