New Zealand is a tiny country. Made up of two rather remote islands (and many smaller ones) and with a population of just over four million people, it is not the most accessible place in the world to visit. Yet it remains one of the world's greatest destinations. There are some of the most divers environments on earth, from beaches and rainforests to mountains, lakes, glaciers and even volcanoes. Many of these different natural features can be visited on the same day. New Zealanders are naturally warm and friendly people. Wherever you go you will receive a friendly smile and a warm welcome. There are a ton of reasons to visit this beautiful country…but make sure that you have seen it from the sky!
