New Zealand

It will come as no surprise that sailing is a national pastime, as this minute country is encompassed by water. In fact, Auckland has been the host for the America’s Cup twice. What New Zealand lacks in population, it makes up for with its stunning beauty. This is the ideal setting for rest and relaxation on the shores, or excitement and adventure inland or out on the water. South Island is punctuated by towering mountains that pierce the clouds, and are speckled with snow. This wilderness provides pristine views of nature along the coast. North Island is host to sweeping vistas of bays and gulfs with the occasional volcanic island called motus. This island is also home to the nation’s main city, Auckland. This city, first inhabited by the Maoris, has become the international business hub and tourist destination of New Zealand. The calm, temperate weather, and breathtaking coastline make this city a must-see. Amongst other destinations in New Zealand, some popular stops are the Bay of Islands along North Island’s tip, and the Marlborough Sounds on South Island. Although there is no better place to partake in thrills, relax in luxury, or enjoy a day on the town than at Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf off the North Island.
