New Zealand

Home of The Lord of The Rings and sheep, New Zealand is an astonishingly beautiful country. The fact that it is so far from almost everywhere that many people go there on a once-in-a-lifetime trip just makes it more special. It is a magnet for fans of rugby and the All Blacks, one of the most famous and revered teams in sport.

It is where The Shire, Mordor, Rivendell and Minas Tirith were brought to life. It has world-famous hiking trails, excellent whale-watching, the famous Ruapehu volcano, and is sparsely populated enough for you to really feel like you are getting away from it all.
