New Zealand is a land of great contrasts and multifariousness. Active volcanoes, spectacular caves, deep glacier lakes, grassy valleys, brilliant coves, long sandy beaches, and the amazing snowcapped peaks of the Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana on the South Island—all contribute to New Zealand’s charming beauty. New Zealand also has a unique assemblage of vegetation and animal life, much of which developed during the country’s extended isolation.
