To say that New Zealand's scenery is stunning is an understatement!

There are spectacular glaciers, fiords, craggy mountains, and waterfalls, along with rolling plains and ancient subtropical rainforests. Gorgeous beaches line the 9,398 miles of coastline. Deer and sheep graze in fertile pastures. Whatever your choice of accommodation -- back packers' hut, working farm, homestead stay or Luxury Lodge -- you are guaranteed a room with a view!

Because New Zealand is a relatively small country - about the size of Colorado - you can easily experience this phenomenal landscape. The largely temperate climate, although changeable, makes New Zealand a year-round holiday destination.

You can fish the trout-filled lakes, swim with dolphins, paddle a kayak alongside curious seals, or sail a luxury yacht. Or for more adventure, climb Fox Glacier or ski Mt Cook.

Enjoy walking one of the famous tracks along alpine fields and diverse forests with amazing views of high waterfalls and distant mountains , while listening to the sound of hundreds of birds.

Drive through the world famous Marlborough wine growing region, where vineyards bathed in moist sea air are home to the world-renowned sauvignon blanc.

The Marae is an unforgettable Maori cultural experience. Dinner is the hangi and the entertainment, the Haka. The Haka is the traditional fierce, scary war dance of ancient Maori warriors who meant to intimidate their enemies. Today the New Zealand All Black Rugby Team performs the Haka before each game !

These are the memories you will take back home!


Recently, New Zealand Tourism issued this:

"In February 2011, Christchurch was hit by a huge earthquake. Much of the central city with its classic neo-gothic architecture was destroyed. But it remains a beautiful city, a city where you can cycle alongside the river, stay in good hotels and indulge in fine sophisticated dining, and a city where, just 15 minutes from the centre you can scramble up mountain bike tracks or ride a wave at a surf beach. The buildings may have been damaged but the soul of the city and the welcoming spirit of the people remain very much intact. Don’t miss visiting Christchurch."
