New Zealand (Aka Aotearoa or Middle Earth) should be on every travellers bucket list as it’s one of the most stunning countries with sublime forests, volcanoes, glaciers, geothermal activity, mind-blowing mountains, Māori culture, golden beaches, abundant wildlife and that’s just to start with! It’s an adventure junkies, hikers, film makers and intrepid travelers paradise!

This South Pacific nation is made up of two major islands (and hundreds of smaller ones) and is renowned for its easy-going, outdoor lifestyle and its friendly locals. The distances are relatively short between the diverse environments because New Zealand is about the same size as the United Kingdom but connected by a modern road network making a self-driven (or cycle touring) holiday popular with intrepid travelers so they can explore at their hearts desire.
