At the ends of the Earth, discover the South Pacific paradise of New Zealand. Experience awe-inspiring alpine mountains, plunging fjords, pristine beaches, dense rain forests, and active volcanoes. Immerse your imagination in the ancient tribal culture of the Maori. Meet the fearsome All Blacks, the national rugby team who greet opponents with their traditional Hacka war dance. Travel across New Zealand’s North and South Islands, where sheep outnumber people.
