Step into a fairytale world
With its picturesque peaks, towns, walks and even a castle thrown in for good measure, the Otago region could fit very easily into a fairytale. In fact it's formed the backdrop of many a film, and round every bend you'll discover breath-taking views that could rival anywhere in the world.
Whether you're after a family ski holiday to the Remarkables, Coronet Peak or Cardrona, delve into the Scottish history of Dunedin, or spend a weekend relaxing in Wanaka, Otago has it all. The large student and backpacker population has contributed to a healthy nightlife, with an abundance of restaurants, bars and cafes. Adventurous and outdoor activities make the region a mecca for thrill-seekers - you might like to try a spot of bungee jumping or sky diving while you're there. If you'd prefer to leave the adrenalin-pumping activities to the youngsters, why not check out one of Wanaka's proliferation of craft beer breweries that have sprung up in recent years? Or pay a visit to the only castle in New Zealand - Larnach Castle in Dunedin?
Or simply rent yourself a car and road trip through the many scenic sights this region has to offer? From the isolated Nugget Point to the postcard-worthy Glenorchy, and all the vistas you'll encounter as you turn a bend or drive over a hill, there will be many moments to appreciate your home country in Otago.
