People love to throw around the phrase ‘natural beauty’. Then they go to New Zealand.
The ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’ – it’s a classic Kiwi understatement if there ever was one. And while most travelers are drawn to New Zealand for those epic experiences out in nature – the open spaces, the dusted peaks, the lakes that pop with blue and make a mockery of Instagram filters – that stuff is just the tip of the glacier. From the feather-clad harbingers of Maoritanga to the happening backstreets of Wellington and Dunedin, to the natural beauty of Milford Sound, this country jumps with vitality in more ways than simply geological. Come for the epic trails and bubbling geysers, stay for the friendliest folk in the southern hemisphere.
