New Zealand Trip Planner & Country Overview

Tramping, or bushwalking, is a national pastime in this island nation, and miles of fjord-indented coastline, coves, geysers, and underground glowworm chambers provide an ample arena. Because of the proximity to underwater canyons, varieties of whales and orcas can be seen year-round. Locals, nicknamed Kiwis after the national bird, are sociable and easygoing, at least outside of sporting events. Be the master of your own adventure with this Trip Planner for New Zealand.
