tattooedsass asked: Where did you get travelers insurance from and how much did it end up costing? Would you recommend it for a 6 week trip? Also, we are considering kayaking the Milford Sound, would you recommend it? Thanks!
We purchased travelers insurance through World Nomads and paid 520 USD for 12 months. Insurance was required for our visa, (though they never checked on it when we arrived), but I would recommend insurance, just for the peace of mind. I think you can pay for exactly 6 weeks too.
Kayaking in the Milford Sound was amazing. We did the Stirling Sunriser with Rosco’s Milford Kayaks. The price is a bit steep (175 USD), but the views are incredible, the tour consisted of just us, another couple and the guide so it was pretty personal, and we got to kayak under a 150m waterfall! It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Happy traveling!

Kayaking in the Milford Sound was hands down one of the best things we have done in New Zealand so far. The guided tour was a bit expensive for our shoestring budget but totally worth it for the opportunity to kayak under Stirling Falls and have playful seals as company.
