A return to the natural world

Peaceful, wild and unhurried - New Zealand sways gently to the beat of its own rhythm. A playground for nature enthusiasts or lovers of the great outdoors, the country serves up subtropical enclaves with unspoilt beaches, epic walking trails through ice-carved valleys, and of course the spectacular natural wonder that is Milford Fjord. At its heart is the traditional Maori culture, which is very much still alive in the country’s entertainment, sport, cooking and welcoming spirit. This is the place to forget your contemporary problems, open your eyes and bask in the raw beauty of the world.
