Today’s post is part of a weekly series called “Travel Toss-Up,” in which we ask you to take your pick between two amazing travel experiences.

This week’s toss-up offers a choice of two scenic rides.

Would you rather…

… go kayaking in Milford Sound, New Zealand, or …

… take a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway in California?

Milford Sound (actually a fjord) is one of the most popular attractions on New Zealand’s South Island, but most visitors see it via a small cruise ship rather than on a more intimate kayaking journey. (Intrigued? Roscoe’s Milford Kayaks is one local operator.) If driving is more your speed, you can’t beat the Pacific Coast Highway for sweet scenery along the California coast.

    It would have to be New Zealand because I’ve already driven the Pacific Coast Highway.

    PCH! Been waiting a long time to take that ride & am very fortunate to have already visited gorgeous South Island, NZ where along with Milford Sound, much of heaven on Earth exists! Eager to do that Cali ride :)

    Definitely Milford Sound! I haven’t been to New Zealand – yet. It’s on my list.
