As one of the last places on Earth settled by humans, New Zealand is the rare holiday destination that still feels seamlessly connected with its natural surroundings, providing an Eden-like paradise for visitors. This is, after all, the place where Lord of the Rings was famously filmed, due to its innate, sprawling natural beauty.

Home to New Zealand’s two major cities, Auckland and Wellington, and two thirds of its population, the North Island offers dynamic urban centres along its coasts as well as bubbling volcanoes in the Central Plateau.

The Bay of Islands is a popular holiday destination for sailing, diving, snorkelling, and even swimming with dolphins. Further south, the Coromandel Peninsular, reaching into the sea between Auckland and the Bay of Plenty, offers many scenic hiking trails.
