New Zealand

Quite possibly the most beautiful country in the world.

New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It is northeast of Australia and south of the Pacific island nations of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga.

New Zealand is made up of two main islands, the North Island and the South Island, and many smaller islands. The North Island is home to about three-quarters of the population, while the South Island is more sparsely populated.

New Zealand is a very popular tourist destination due to the country's landscape, outdoors lifestyle, and wineries. New Zealand offers stunning and diverse natural beauty: jagged mountains, rolling pasture land, steep fiords, pristine trout-filled lakes, raging rivers, active volcanic zones, and subtropical forests. The country is also home to many unique species of animals and plants, most of which are found nowhere else in the world. In New Zealand you will often find yourself surrounded by incredible beaty.

Popular places include the largest city Auckland, the capital Wellington, the adventure capital of the world Queenstown, as well as smaller places famous for their beauty such as Rotorua, Dunedin, and Nelson.
