AOTEAROA: THE LAND OF THE LONG WHITE CLOUD.
Home to the clearest waters in the world, over 200 native bird species, the Hobbits of Middle Earth, 5 million people and 27 million sheep. The first country in the world to give women the vote, the first to conquer Everest and the first in the world to see the sunrise each day. New Zealand is a humble little country that packs a big punch.
From the treetops of the ancient kauri forests in Northland and heights of the South Alps’ snowy peaks, to the depths of the serene fiords of Milford Sound and cellars of our award-winning vineyards, there’re amazing memories to be made in New Zealand. Our reputation for incredible untouched beauty and amazing landscapes spans around the globe. Kiwis (New Zealanders) are also renowned for their laid-back approach to life, affinity with the land and sense of community. On a visit to New Zealand you can expect to be met with welcoming kindness, incredible hospitality, and a quirky sense of humour.
