New Zealand is one of the most spectacular places on this earth! Whilst New Zealand is a long way away from the UK, it certainly makes for a trip of a lifetime. This beautiful country is one you’ll want to add to your bucket list for sure.
New Zealand is a pretty small country, it’s made up of two rather remote islands (and many smaller ones) and only has a population of just over four million. It’s probably one of the most photogenic countries in the world! It is packed with the most stunning scenic views.
Here’s just a few reason why you must visit New Zealand at least once in your life:
The incredible unspoilt scenery
New Zealand is full of such breath taking scenery, with some of the most diverse environments in the world. New Zealand offers everything from subtropical forests, beaches, offshore islands, glaciers, lakes, and snow covered mountains. There’s also Fjords, volcanoes, hot springs and amazing forestry! It’s a photographers paradise.
One of the top places to see is the Abel Tasman. In some ways it’s like stepping into Thailand, the beautiful beaches and pure water make you feel like your on a tropical island – not just New Zealand.
There are loads of opportunities for you to hike there, whether its for a few hours or for a multiple day hiking trip. The hiking is beautiful with giant ferns, huge lush trees and a warm climate. If you really want to go exploring then kayak around the park to see the tiny coves and beaches that make the area special.
The Maori culture
New Zealand has a unique blend of many cultures. In particular, the natives of New Zealand otherwise known as Maori still play an important role. Before the arrivals of the Europeans in the 1700s, New Zealand was inhabited by the Maoris. They now feature prominently in street signs, TV programmes and everyday interactions.
Roturua is a one of the best cities to see Maori cultural shows, there’s also other such as Waitangi Treaty Grounds, Tane Mahuta and the Te papa museum in Wellington. New Zealand now has a fascinating blend of cultures, who mix and thrive in a peaceful yet vibrant city.
Low crime rate
Crime rates in New Zealand are very low so you’re less likely to encounter any problems. It’s not surprising that it has been in the top ranking of the global peace index for many years!
There are also no lethal creatures amongst New Zealand’s wildlife so you can explore without worrying about being eaten or bitten!
New Zealand is a huge adventure capital. So, if you’re seeking adrenaline inducing experiences, then this the place to be. Did you know, bungee jumping was actually invented and made famous in New Zealand. One not to be missed!
There is millions of activities to choose from such as abseiling, caving and canyoning, white water rafting, skydiving, hiking, zorbing, ziplines and so much more!
