New Zealand is remote, beautiful and spectacular. It gives you a taste of all the beautiful things in life without taking you away from comfort or luxury. It introduces you to stunning natural beauty without taking you away from civilization (mostly). It brings you closer to journeys that let you rediscover yourself as a traveler.
The North and the South
North Island is where you see man and nature coexisting with each other for centuries. At the very heart of the island are powerful forces such as geysers and volcanoes and in their midst lie beautifully preserved Maori museums, villages and sites. Ancient forests such as Te Urewera and Waipoua are also located in the North Island. Auckland is the largest city here. The South Island is more famous for its spectacular scenic beauty, exhilarating drives, national parks, rural towns and reserves. The interior is home to the world-famous attractions such as Fiordland, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lake Tekapo and Mount Cook. Christchurch is the biggest getaway here.
There is a reason why movies like The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, King Kong, Chronicles of Narnia, Avatar (also shot in China), The Last Samurai and Vertical Limit were shot in New Zealand. The Land of the Long White Cloud always finds a way to inspire you with its beauty and leave you entranced with its culture.
