About New Zealand
New Zealand is a country of spectacular landscapes, cosmopolitan cities, a unique collection of wildlife and nature found nowhere else on earth and virtually unlimited adventure. Regularly voted the most beautiful country in the world, this South Pacific island nation is often described as a world in itself. Its two main islands span over 1000 miles and take in all climates from the sub-tropical temperate north to the sub-Antarctic alpine south.
From whale watching in Kaikoura to heli-hiking Fox Glacier, enjoying an overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound or and hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing , New Zealand was seemingly purpose-built for outdoor adventure offering a plethora of experiences and always in stunning surrounds.

Things to do in New Zealand
Well-known for adventurous pursuits, New Zealand offers plenty of blood-pumping activities such as white-water rafting, jet boating and heli-skiing. For less adrenaline-fuelled activities, explore the ‘9 Great Walks’, or perhaps cycle round the country’s famous vineyards.
Wildlife enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with a plethora of bird or whale watching trips available, plus plenty of diving for those looking to discover the aquatic wonders of New Zealand. There are mountains to climb, glaciers to hike, lakes to paddle and cities to explore. Spend the day learning about the Maori culture or visit the spouting geysers and bubbling mud cauldrons.
