New Zealand is a scenic stunner, an island nation defined by dramatic mountains, steep fjords and gently rolling hills. Fans of the great outdoors will love New Zealand’s big skies, deep lakes and long walks; this is a place where the air is cleaner, the water is clearer and the grass is greener. The temperate climate and verdant hills scattered with sheep are reminiscent of Britain, though the ancient Polynesian culture of the Maori adds another dimension to this fascinating country.
New Zealand’s laid-back cities are well worth getting to know, but you’ll be spending the majority of your time communing with nature. The incredible landscapes of Fiordland draw the biggest gasps, while Rotorua’s sulphurous springs and bubbling mud pools give clues to the geological forces still shaping the scenery. Walk in the footsteps of Frodo and Gandalf with a ‘Lord of the Rings’ tour, spot whales off the coast of Kaikoura or scale the icy heights of the Franz Josef Glacier. New Zealand isn’t all high-octane adventure, however, and a tour of the Marlborough winelands allows you to appreciate the natural beauty of the South Island with a chilled glass of Sauvignon blanc in hand.
