New Zealand

New Zealand’s Maori name is both romantic and apt – Aotearoa, meaning ‘land of the long white cloud’ brings to mind unspoilt landscapes and immense natural beauty, and with its beautiful extremes of rainforests and reefs, glaciers and volcanoes, you won’t be disappointed.

Located in the middle of South Pacific, to the south-east of Australia, New Zealand is made up of two long thin islands, with a land area not much larger than California, but has a surprising amount to offer. It is culturally fascinating, as home to a large population of Maori‘s, with plenty of opportunities to get a glimpse of their traditional way of life. It is also a very active country, both the people and the land itself, with more crazy and original extreme sports for you to try than any other country has ever dreamed up, and equally amazing geothermal sites. It is also has the world’s largest person to sheep ratio, and as a result, is home to a ‘world famous’ Sheep Shearing Festival – unarguably a unique country!

In no other country of this size can you scuba dive in one the top sites in the world, walk on glaciers, fly down stream on a jet-boat, taste world-class wines and spend Christmas on the beach. New Zealand is all about being the best – the highest, the fastest, the lowest, the longest, meaning that even the shortest visit will be a journey of discovery and you’d have to be quite a cynic to find nothing here to impress you.
