New Zealand lies to the southwest of the Pacific Ocean and promises breathtaking landscapes adorned with picturesque coastlines and the mightiest mountains. One of New Zealand's highlights is its opportunities for adventure activities as well as its nice blend of museums, art galleries and heritage sites.
Rich in Maori culture, this island nation or Aotearoa as the locals call it, is a diverse mix of contemporary cityscapes and attractions that will take you back in time to New Zealand's past. It is famous for its wildlife that is unlike any other region in the world with species you can find only on this island. The Kiwi is a flightless bird that is a national symbol and also, a slang term for someone from New Zealand.
Divided into two islands namely, North Island and South Island, this nation is historically known to be the last place to be occupied by humans, hence having a very sparse local population but generous in its untouched natural splendour. Being so down south in geography, the weather conditions of New Zealand is patchy and extremely unpredictable One needs to be prepared to endure all sorts of weather within a day. Experience the fast-paced city of Auckland or Wellington, the national capital, or the glorious mountains at Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and some time on the stunning coastlines by visiting the Abel Tasman National Park and to add to the already diverse mix, Hobbiton at Matamata for all the Lord of the Rings aficionados.
