Peaks, Fjords, Waterfalls

When a film script calls for a backdrop of stunning scenery, New Zealand steps right up with its dramatic peaks, scenic fjords, and plummeting waterfalls, not to mention empty white-sand beaches and lush rainforests. The last country to be inhabited by humans, New Zealand has pristine landscapes and endemic flora and fauna that are impressive and diverse. Add Maori culture, cities known for their quality of life, and celebrated wines and gastronomy, and it’s easy to understand the country’s longstanding appeal to discerning travelers.

We knew the country and fjords would be beautiful, but it was the people we fell in love with. The history of the Maori and the relationship between the native people and modern culture is inspiring.
