New Zealand

Pacific


The home of "Middle Earth", New Zealand is one of the world's most naturally stunning destinations. From Milford Sound, with its soaring pinnacles of rock, in the south to the beautiful beaches at the Bay of Islands in the north, the entire island is a playground of active volcanoes, lush green forests and glacier topped mountain peaks. Home to 14 national parks as well as plenty of adrenaline activities from bungee jumping, surfing to white water rafting, it's a wonderfully active destination. But should you want to just relax, or explore its more artsy side, there are world-class vineyards, a vibrant restaurant, craft beer and gallery scene in big cities like Auckland and Wellington and opportunities to experience traditional Maori culture.
