Raw nature and unique wildlife create New Zealand’s spectacular wilderness experiences.

In a landscape spanning white to black sand beaches, mountains, forests, rivers and lakes, and volcanic marvels, New Zealand's scenery leaves nothing to the imagination. Almost one-third of the land has been set aside in national parks, reserves and heritage sites to preserve the country’s ecological heritage - a pristine panorama of ancient forests and landforms, rare birds and creatures that have survived since prehistoric times. There are many opportunities to explore New Zealand's treasured environment with a developing eco-tourism industry aiming for sustainable tourism models.
