Located on New Zealand’s South Island, Wellington is often overlooked by visitors. Perhaps it’s because most of the international air traffic comes through the North Island, or perhaps it’s just because Auckland is better known than the capital city. Either way, Wellington is an excellent choice for wheelers and slow walkers, as it boasts an impressive collection of accessible attractions, lodging options and even transportation. Even better – the inclusive attitude of the locals makes everyone feel welcome. And since it’s just a short flight from Auckland, Wellington is a very do-able addition to any New Zealand itinerary.
