After passing by Otago Peninsula on our roundtrip through New Zealand we explored the South Lands which is called the Catlins. Here you can watch amazing sunsets, see waterfalls and the best swim with the smallest dolphins in the world.
Strolling through the hilly coastline of New Zealand feels like walking in heaven, at least to me. The grass is green, the sky is azure blue and cute little sheeps decorate the view. Fluffy clouds just pass by. You can hear the sound of the waves splashing against the cliffs. The sun is warming your face and a nice breeze flows around your body. The sweetest smell of nature surrounds you.
This was my first impression of New Zealand but now back to the serious stuff. Where to stay , where are the best hiking routes and where to spot the best wild life. The Otago Peninsula is the home of some very rare species like the Yellow-Eyed Penguin, Fur-Seals, Sea Lions and the Royal Albatross.
