Many countries boast of having cinematic landscapes, but New Zealand received Hollywood’s endorsement when the Lord of the Rings movies were filmed here. From the dramatic Southern Alps and the fjords of the South Island to the gently rolling hills of the Kapiti Coast and the hundred-plus isles in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand is always ready for a close-up. Only 4 million people (and, famously, more than 20 million sheep) live in this country that’s roughly the size of Colorado, and you never need travel far to find a quiet spot where you can commune with nature here.Its natural beauty is just one of New Zealand’s appeals. Its largest city, Auckland, is a sophisticated metropolis with leading museums and top restaurants. Christchurch proudly maintains its English traditions and atmosphere, while Queenstown is the adventure capital of the world—a great choice if you want to go bungee jumping, jetboating or skydiving. Its culinary and other cultural draws should not be overlooked, from the vineyards of Marlborough to a thriving Maori culture.Finally, the welcoming residents, always eager to introduce visitors to their stunning country, make exploring New Zealand a unique pleasure.
