I want to go to New Zealand for a two weeks holiday, and I like the natural remote life more than city style. Is the South/North Island the right destination for me?
NZ doesn't really do cities so much - north or south both are natural, remote and beautiful. North is slightly warmer and thus much greener - think lots of trees and green hills. It also has some stunning national parks such as Tongariro Alpine Crossing (I mention it a lot but it was a huge highlight of my trip to NZ!) plus some lovely beaches in the top. Better to go here in their summer (although still good in the winter I'm sure!)
There is literally a huge list of amazing, remote places for each island so I would say it depends on what you want out of your holiday. Both have excellent hiking trails and adrenaline activities and you would honestly fall in love with either of them.
