There aren’t many places on this planet where travellers are so well catered for – in terms of both man-made enticements and splendours of the natural realm.
Bigger than the UK, with one-fourteenth the population, and filling in the gaps are sublime forests, mountains, lakes, beaches and fiords that have made NZ one of the best hiking (locals call it ‘tramping’) destinations on Earth. It’s renowned worldwide for having a relaxed, friendly, spacious and outdoor adventure lifestyle (think sport, walks, BBQs, and beaches). When you combine this adventurous outlook with a stunning backdrop you start to see why travellers rate New Zealand as the action/adventure/adrenalin capital of the world!
New Zealand’s people (known as “Kiwis”) are well known for their welcoming and accepting nature.
