New Zealand

Located in the South Pacific Ocean, 1600 km southeast of Australia, New Zealand consists of two bigger islands and several smaller ones. Being so isolated, New Zealand is the last piece of land inhabited by humans and touched by civilization. The first European that visited New Zealand was Dutch explorer Abel Tasman, back in 1642.

Some memorable New Zealand attractions are: hiking on the Franz Josef / Fox Glaciers and visiting glowworm caves near Te Anau in Fiordland, whale watching in Kaikoura, kayaking the Abel Tasman, sailing in the Marlborough Sounds, and scenic sightseeing tours of Auckland. You can also try sky diving bungy jumping, horse trekking, health and beauty relaxation treatments and so much more.

On the Stewart Island you have the opportunity to see New Zealand’s most famous flightless bird, the Kiwi. The kiwi bird is an endangered species, so it’s a chance of a life time to see the Kiwis in their natural habitat.

There are many accommodation options to choose from for a trip to New Zealand. There are lots of hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, luxury lodges and apartments available in big cities but also along coast side. The national capital is Wellington, also known as “The Windy City”, but the biggest city is Auckland, “The City of Sails”.
