While the filming of Lord of the Rings introduced many people to this beautiful little country, it still feels like a well kept secret. Roughly around the size of the UK, with a population of only around 4.5 million compared to the 64.5 million currently residing in the UK, New Zealand offers space and a feeling of times gone by. Split into two islands, the North and South, the majority of the population reside in the nation’s capital Auckland. With tropical paradises in the far north, spectacular mountain ranges and glaciers in the south and enough adventure activities to satisfy even the most extreme of travellers...this truly is a unique corner of the world.
