Whether you’re exploring ancient forests, kayaking through towering fiords or wine tasting near white sand beaches, every day in New Zealand is a different journey, with adventure around every corner. Today, hideaway on an island paradise or find your own path among endless hiking and cycle trails. Tomorrow, peek through Hobbit holes, unwind in hidden hot springs, and let the warm Kiwi culture embrace you.

New Zealand might look small on a world map, but it's jam-packed with places to see. The country is about the size of Colorado, but the length of California and Oregon combined. With a population of only 4.4 million people, there's lots of room to enjoy the scenery.

Located in the South Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is made up of two main islands. Active volcanoes, island sanctuaries and history top the list when visiting the North Island. From the far north where New Zealand's political history began, journey through landscapes that blend magnificent beaches, sprawling farmlands and geothermal wonders. Maori culture is rich and ever-present in many parts of the North Island.

A palette of dramatic scenes, the South Island hosts the purest natural landscapes you'll ever experience. Showcasing the best of nature's assets where towering alps meet peaceful sounds, and rugged coastlines merge with sweeping plains. Let's not forget the backbone of the island - the most down-to-earth locals you'll ever meet.

Being a compact country means that all destinations are within a two hours' flight. Though it takes a bit longer, driving will let you enjoy the stunning landscapes and diversity that linger around every corner. And you never know what new friends you'll make along the way.
