Fantastic nature and unique culture
New Zealand attracts many foreign visitors. It is experienced by many people as one of the most beautiful destinations, especially when it comes to nature. The largely untouched land has several national parks. In addition to the two main islands – the North Island and the South Island – New Zealand has hundreds of smaller islands, several of which are uninhabited.
In addition to all its natural beauty, New Zealand is also a country with a unique, rich and diverse culture, with Polynesian and European influences. The indigenous people, the Maori, and their culture still have a prominent place in the former British colony. The British influence is evident in the country’s popular sports such as rugby, cricket and golf.
And besides all this, New Zealand is of course the land of kiwis and also a major wine producer.
A world apart for 80 million years
Since New Zealand was separated from the contiguous continent of Gondwanaland 80 million years ago, nature has evolved completely isolated from the rest of the world. Unique and impressive. There are glaciers, mountain areas, rainforests, rock formations, lakes, geysers and volcanoes. The coastline is characterized by beautiful sandy beaches. Animals native to New Zealand include whales, dolphins, penguins, seals and many rare bird species.
North Island and South Island
New Zealand’s two main islands are both impressive in every way, but each has its own character.
On the North Island you will find bubbling geysers and steaming sulfur lakes around Rotorua and active volcanoes in Tongariro National Park.

On the South Island, the deep fjords of Milford Sound and the peaks of the Southern Alps characterize the natural landscape, and towns such as Queenstown and resurgent Christchurch are especially worth a visit.
