New Zealand’s awesome landscapes, lush forests, amazing wildlife and pleasant climate make it a haven for many outdoor activities, and a great place to unwind.


Those seeking an active vacation can experience the breathtaking landscape and natural environment, exhilarating recreational pursuits, including bungee jumping and canyoning, jaw-dropping views by helicopter, or to relax, a soak in geothermal hot pools. The Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand; they have a unique and fascinating language and culture, which plays a major role in New Zealand life and must be discovered as a visitor to the country.



The great advantage of New Zealand is that all of its diverse physical, cultural, and artistic landscapes are so close to each other, making it an ideal holiday destination.
