New Zealand travel guide

4.5
Land of the Long White Cloud
Far-flung New Zealand has become known for its astounding topography, singular biodiversity, varied climate, and for marrying native Maori and post-colonial European cultures on its two main islands and the multitude of smaller landmasses dotted around them. Free-spirited New Zealanders cultivate a love of sports, sustainability, and the outdoors. Far from other landmasses, the islands existed for millions of years before being inhabited by humans, so an abundance of species have come to thrive in the thick, wild rainforest, vast and rugged backland, and extensive surrounding marine areas. While much of New Zealand tourism centers around adventures through this spectacular scenery, take time to explore the nation's rich cultural heritage as well. The traditions and history of the Maoris, and the industry and internationalism of the descendents of the first European settlers endure in fascinating attractions, ranging from museums, to farms, to places of worship.

Bay of Islands travel guide

Historic Sites · Swim with Dolphins · Dolphin & Whale Watching
World-renowned place for big-game fishing, the subtropical microregion of Bay of Islands has enjoyed fame ever since the adventure novelist Zane Grey released "Tales of the Angler's El Dorado, New Zealand" in the 1930s. Your own Bay of Islands trip can be as adventurous as you like, with great opportunities for spotting whales, dolphins, marlins, and penguins, as well as popular dive spots. Don't forget to turn your gaze upward from the abundant sea: the sky here is the second-bluest in the word, according to a scientific study conducted early in the 21st century. The bay's many islands have great hiking trails, and long sandy beaches stretch along the coves and inlets on the mainland.
