New Zealand is home to stunning glaciers, snow-capped mountains, white-water rafting, spurting geysers and boiling mud. Movies such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Last Samurai have highlighted the region's natural beauty.
New Zealand is famous for its adventure sports and outdoor activities like tramping, skiing, zorbing, jet boats and the one that started it all, bungy jumping. It offers water activities like whale watching, swimming with the dolphins and fishing expeditions.
New Zealand also boasts fine wines, fresh seafood and of course the world's best lamb. They have a fascinating culture, which can be experienced by attending a Maori hangi, where the food is prepared in the ground.
Made up of the North Island and the South Island, New Zealand is a compact country (less than half the size of Alberta). Because of this, you can cover a large amount of territory in a relatively short time. The Kiwis (as New Zealanders are nicknamed) are known for their friendly, relaxed and hospitable nature.
