Sometimes referred to as "God Zone" because of its gorgeous scenery, New Zealand is filled with some of the most dramatic terrain on Earth! From glaciers to rainforests, this is known to New Zealanders as "Native Bush".New Zealand's scenery can be admired while you're skiing, surfing, horseback riding, mountain climbing, hiking, or kayaking.
Two islands make up what is New Zealand: North Island and South Island. The North Island, which is the most populated of the two has a more temperate climate. The North Island is mountainous, filled with geo-thermal areas and active volcanoes. The South Island on the other hand, is not as populated; therefore, it's much more open and spacious than North Island. The South Island is filled with streams, spectacular fjords and glaciers.
Like Australia, everyone should visit New Zealand at least once... New Zealand's foremost attraction is its natural beauty. Mount Everest, which runs along China, Nepal, and Tibet was climbed by Sir Edmond Hillary who with the help of Tenzing Norgay reach Everest's summit in 1953. Well, what does this mean? Sir Edmond Hillary is a Kiwi or New Zealander. New Zealand was also the first country in the world to grant women the right to vote. When, you ask? 1893! Stretching out nearly 3 million acres , the Fjordland National Park is located southwest of South Island.
