New Zealand Vacation Planner
Welcome to New Zealand!New Zealand, a small group of islands in the South Pacific, is home to a population under four million people. Aotearoa, or “land of the long white cloud”, as it is known in the Maori language, is a blend of European and Pacific Island cultures, cosmopolitan cities and natural beauty, and cultural refinement with adventurous spirit.
On New Zealand's North Island, home to the country’s largest city, Auckland, and the capital of Wellington, metropolitan life mingles with a unique landscape. Golden beaches, hot springs, and volcanoes are only a sample of what visitors will find beside populated centres.
With the spectacular wilderness areas of the South Island, numerous tour and adventure companies provide outdoor escapes to suit all visitors. The South Island's Christchurch and Dunedin are world-class cities, embracing both colonial heritage and sophisticated urban life.
