New Zealand is a country of rare seismic beauty: glacial mountains, fast-flowing rivers, deep, clear lakes, hissing geysers and boiling mud. There are also abundant native forests, long, deserted beaches and a variety of fauna, such as the kiwi, endemic to its shores. Any number of vigorous outdoor activities - tramping (hiking), skiing, rafting and, of course, that perennial favourite, bungy jumping - await the adventurous. You can swim with dolphins, gambol with newborn lambs, whale-watch or fish for fattened trout in pristine streams and rivers.

Anchors Aweigh: Auckland

Sun, 14 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [29]

GREETINGS FROM AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND.  The Air New Zealand flight from LAX was surprisingly comfortable — for coach, that is — and both of us actually got some sleep.  I just can’t get myself to spend triple the price of ... Read more >

Delay, delay, delay

Sun, 14 Apr 2019 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [87]

I did wonder about just not doing this any more... but if there's anything I've discovered about life it's that what I feel or think one day will invariably change tomorrow, next week, next year. We have had an awesome summer in Kiwilandia this year.... Read more >

Photos: Huka Falls

Thu, 4 Apr 2019 | By taylortreks | Photo Gallery

We missed Huka Falls on our previous trips, so we made sure to stop by this time. However, the 'falls' were pedestrian -- we think the big draw for them is the jet boat trip through the narrow channel.
