New Zealand, a land like no other
New Zealand is a small country, similar in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of only four million people (informally known as Kiwis) it’s also gloriously uncrowded. It has a rich and fascinating history, reflecting the unique mix of Māori and European culture.
Lying in the south-west Pacific, New Zealand consists of two main islands - the North Island and the South Island.
You'll find a variety of awesome landscapes in New Zealand, all within easy reach of each other. Spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, vast plains, rolling hillsides, subtropical forest, volcanic plateau, miles of coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches - it’s all there.
