New Zealand

New Zealand is located between the Tasman Sea and the South Pacific Ocean, and aside from a warm Kiwi welcome, there is plenty to love about New Zealand. Soaring mountains, ancient glaciers, huge forests, unique wildlife and superb beaches make it a favorite with outdoor lovers, all served up with a delicious glass of wine from the New World.

New Zealand's stunning landscapes, vibrant forests, amazing wildlife and great climate make it a fantastic destination for those who love the great outdoors. Often considered the adventure capital of the world, in New Zealand anything goes - from the original bungy jump over the swirling waters of the Kawarau River, swimming with hundreds of wild Dusky Dolphins, or landing on a glacier for a bottle of champagne, to simply relaxing on a beautiful beach without a soul in sight. With such a diverse society, New Zealanders are some of the most welcoming people you can find, and with their emerging world-class cuisine and spectacular wines, this really is one of the most diverse and exciting vacation destinations in the world.
