New Zealand Tourism

A country at the bottom of the world, the last place God made and he saved up the best for the last. 2500km away from the closest country, New Zealand lies hidden in misty solitude. Kupe - the first explorer to land on its shores named it ‘Aotearoa’- Land of the Long White Cloud. New Zealand is one of the most awe-inspiring places on earth. New Zealand has everything an exotic holiday destination should have - mist covered volcanoes, clear blue seas teeming with fish, snow capped mountains, geysers, virgin rain forests, glaciers, the indigenous (Maori) culture and lots and lots of adventure sports. Just when you think you've experienced it all, there's more.

We would of course recommend a month's holiday in New Zealnd, but even if you stay for a day or two, you won't return disappointed, just hungry for more. Just get the hang of their delightful twang, and you'll have the best holiday of your lifetime in New Zealand.

The word Kiwi denotes a fruit, a bird and a New Zealander!

Contrary to popular belief the Kiwi fruit which most people think is from New Zealand, is actually a Chinese gooseberry that originated in China.

Interestingly, the Kiwi bird is a bird that does not fly! It hardly has any bird like qualities even in appearance – squat body, very short wings that are more hairy then feathery.

Did you know that world's smallest marine dolphin Hector's Dolphin and the world's rarest sea lion, the Hooker's, are only found in New Zealand?

The Frying Pan Lake near Rotorua in New Zealand is one of the world's largest hot water spring.

New Zealand is one of the countries that has more golf courses per capita of population.
