With its glacial lakes and mountain vistas, it difficult to think of anywhere more romantic than New Zealand. Why not explore its sights with the one you love the most?

New Zealand may be touted as the adventure capital of the world but for those looking to take things at a slower pace, there are an abundance of places where romance can flourish. And if you’re looking to treat someone special in your life this Valentine’s Day, then why not book a selected AAT Kings guided holiday and save 10 per cent?

For some inspiration, here’s our list of five of the most romantic spots New Zealand has to offer.

1. Lake Tekapo
With the turquoise waters of Lake Tekapo as a backdrop, it’s not difficult to understand why brides flock to the Church of the Good Shepherd to get married. Even if nuptials aren’t on your mind, a romantic walk around the grounds shouldn’t be missed.

2. Milford Sound
If serenity is your idea of romance, then a cruise through the ancient glaciers and mountains of Milford Sound should top your list. You really will feel as though you and your loved one are all alone.

3. Arrowtown
Take a step back in time to the gold-mining ‘hub’ of Arrowtown. The preserved late 19th century architecture helps you to fully appreciate what life would have been like during the gold-mining boom. The pace of life here is slow, making it an ideal place to simply do nothing other than enjoy the company of your partner.

4. Gloworm Grotto, Waitomo
It may not be a night beneath the stars but the luminescent light of these tiny gloworms will ensure you radiate romance. As you meander through the caves, guided by the light emanating from the arachnocampa luminosa, to give them their proper name, you really will be at one with nature.

5. Winery - you choose
Whether it’s a cool fruity Sauvignon Blanc or a light and delicious Pinot Noir that takes your fancy, a walk through one of New Zealand’s numerous wineries, followed by a glass of wine shared with someone special is the epitome of romance.

Couldn't speak highly enough about the Land of the Long White Cloud! Already been there twice, to both North and South Islands and already planning to visit again. Not only very affordable, but also rich in natural beauty, it has so much to offer. Whether touring on your own, or via an organised group tour, it is highly recommended. We prefer to make our own arrangements and hire a car, which gives us more flexibility. Naturally, summer is the best time to visit, particularly the South Island, as it gets pretty cold in the winter. Unless of course, you have skiing in mind.
