The best places to see the stars in Britain
Mt Cook national park, New Zealand
New Zealand was always a top contender in this list: a country of such astounding seismic beauty, with every natural attraction to boast of. Glacial mountains, vast lakes, steaming geysers, remote beaches and thick forests are just the beginning. The range of outdoor activities – from rafting to bungy jumping – is just as wide. And if there’s one place in New Zealand most worthy of this list, it’s the South Island, and in particular, the stunning Mt Cook National Park. No less than 22 of the country’s 27 highest mountains reside here. Mt Cook, itself, reaches 3,755m (12,391ft).
