New Zealand Travel Information Introduction
New Zealand must be one of the luckiest tourist countries in the world. It has spectacular mountains, active volcanoes, deep fiords, rugged coastlines, picturesque lakes, streams and beaches, bubbling mud pools, geysers, compelling Maori culture, and warm hospitality.
This is a land full of natural wonder. All of these ingredients are packed into two relatively small islands in the romantic South Pacific and can be seen and experienced in our recommended travel suggestions.
The North Island’s vibrant cities, rolling hills, native forests, and rich Maori influences create a perfect holiday destination. Auckland ‘the city of sails’ is the main gateway and your first port of call. The Bay of Islands, with its stunning coastal scenery and impeccable stretches of beach, and Rotorua, home to bubbling mud pools, thermal springs, and the center for Maori culture are also not to be missed. Experience spectacular national parks, unspoiled wilderness, and some of the best food and wine in the world.
The South Island of New Zealand is one of the most stunning places you’ll find anywhere in the world. Tranquil lakes, raging rivers, lush rainforests, sweeping plains, sunny beaches, rugged coastlines, massive glaciers, pristine fjords, and home to the spectacular snow-capped Southern Alps. The gateway to the South Island is Christchurch, with surrounding areas offering activities such as whale watching, wine touring & craft plus spa villages.
