Let’s explore New Zealand with CIT, a tiny country that made up of two rather remote islands (and many smaller ones) marked by volcanoes and glaciation, 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 tourist destinations. Capital Wellington, on the North Island, is home to Te Papa Tongarewa, the expansive national museum. While Wellington’s dramatic Mt. Victoria, along with the South Island’s Fiordland and Southern Lakes, stood in for mythical Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” films.
Head on over to New Zealand, it may seem like a long way to travel, but your visit will be one of the most memorable trips of your lifetime.
The incredible unspoilt scenery. There are some of the most diverse 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 Zealand’s friendly and down-to-earth people will be one of the things you treasure most about your visit. With a patchwork history of Māori, European, Pacific Island and Asian cultures, New Zealand has become a melting-pot population – but one with some uniting features that make it unique in the world. New Zealand today is a fascinating blend of cultures who mingle and thrive in a peaceful yet vibrant society.
Where else can you go surfing, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, tramping, sailing, swimming, parachuting, horseback riding, or caving all within a 100-mile radius and even on the same day? Don’t forget to try the bungee jump, invented and made famous right here.
