New Zealand (Aotearoa) often translated as ‘land of the long white cloud’ is a small island nation home to around 4.5 million people located in the Pacific Ocean and consisting of 2 main islands, the North Island and South Island, both marked by volcanoes and glaciation. Get ready for mammoth National Parks, dynamic Maori culture, and world class surfing and skiing. New Zealand can be mellow or action packed, but it’s always epic.
New Zealand has an amazing range of breath taking scenery, from subtropical forests, beaches, and offshore islands in the north to glaciers, lakes, snow-covered mountains, and large flat plains in the south. There are also fjords, volcanoes, hot springs, and beautiful rolling green pastures, a diversity like no other place on earth. It’s jam-packed with adventure activities. Where else can you go surfing, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, tramping, sailing, swimming, parachuting, horseback riding, or caving all within a 100-mile radius and even on the same day? Don’t forget to try the Bungy Jump invented and made famous right here.
