New Zealand is blessed with miles of spectacular coastline and pristine scenery against a backdrop of stunning mountainscapes. Add to this, active volcanos and bubbling hot springs, steaming geysers and glassy lakes, welcoming cities and a rich Maori culture, and visitors will discover a unique wonderland. Indulging in its delicious food and wine is also a highlight on any visit. The country is divided into two main islands, North Island and South Island, and a number of smaller islands, both of which have international airports and bustling cities with plenty to do. The main airports handling flights to New Zealand include Auckland Airport, Christchurch Airport and Wellington Airport. Several major airlines operate international flights there including Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines and Emirates.
The stylish capital city, Wellington, is a vibrant city bound between the harbour and the hills and boasts a high concentration of cultural attractions, renowned museums, nightly entertainment and some of the country's best gastronomy. Further north, Auckland, the 'City of sails,' is a lively metropolis brimming with things to do, set amid a breathtaking landscape of bucolic vineyards, golden beaches and nature. You can also take a ferry to the tranquil islands of the Hauraki Gulf. On the South Island, get ready for some of New Zealand's purest scenery, from glacial valleys and snow-covered Alps to immaculate beaches, rivers and rainforests, and if that isn't enough, it also enjoys some of the country's top wine areas to whet your appetite.
