New Zealand has quickly climbed its way to the top of travelers’ bucket lists. After all, it is one of the best places to travel this year, and a prime spot to catch the Southern Lights.

It’s also the most recent vacation destination for what might be one of our favorite travel trios yet: Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Oprah Winfrey.  Ok, so it’s not really a vacation—they’re there to film their new movie “A Wrinkle in Time”—but it seems they’ve managed to find some time to explore the beautiful country.

Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling both announced this as their first trip to the New Zealand, as each actress posted Instagrams holding guidebooks with captions asking followers for recommendations.

Kaling even prepped for her trip by watching Lord of the Rings.

Kaling and Witherspoon traveled together, sharing selfies on the tarmac before takeoff and after landing with a to-do list we can’t help but love, “1. Hike these mtns, 2. Snuggle some sheep, 3. Meet awesome Kiwis.”

 

Watch out New Zealand! We're heeeeeerrrree & Ready to : 1. Hike these mtns 2. Snuggle some sheep 3. Meet awesome Kiwis

And, the pair didn’t waste any time before exploring the breathtaking landscapes of the South Island. They shared beautiful photos of the scenery and mountains, as well as a cute furry friend they found along the way.

Oprah has been quiet on social media about the trip but posted this adorable photo of the three ladies in celebration of Valentine’s Day.

Wish you could join in on the fun?

While we can’t get you to New Zealand, it may be possible to win a cruise with Oprah.
