About New Zealand

New Zealand is a special destination.

New Zealand has a unique and dynamic culture. The culture of its indigenous Maori people affects the language, the arts, and even the accents of all New Zealanders.

Renowned for its range of adventure pastimes - the best known being bungy jumping, jet boat riding, rafting and skiing. But adventure means different things to different people and the best aspect of the New Zealand adventure scene is that it provides activities ranging from hiking and water skiing to mountain climbing and caving.

Few counties can combine in such a small area the stunning rugged landscapes, gorgeous beaches, often spectacular geothermal and volcanic activity, a temperate climate and a fascinating animal and plant life. The great advantage of New Zealand is there are many different landscapes, environments, and ecosystems so close to each other.

In September the ski season is still operating.
