New Zealand

New Zealand is home to some of the most fantastic natural landscapes in the world, so it’s easy to understand the Kiwis’ enduring love for the outdoors. Their backyards open up to glorious ski runs in winter and mountain biking trails in summer, primordial forests of ancient kauri trees and iridescent blue volcanic lakes. South Island’s Queenstown is the adventure capital of the world, enticing thrill-seekers with bungee jumping and skydiving, stunning walking trails and canoeing. South Island is especially popular for cruises along stunning fjords, particularly Milford Sound, which gradually gives way to the Southern Alps.
