Overview

One of the last land masses to be inhabited by humans, New Zealand still remains relatively thinly populated. A former British colony, New Zealand also identifies strongly with its indigenous Maori population, which now makes up approximately 15% of the population.

Known for its diverse natural features, New Zealand’s climate ranges from sub-tropical on the North Island, where you can sample the country’s famous wines in Wellington, to temperate on the South Island, home of some of the best walking tracks on the planet.
