A complete guide to planning your trip to New Zealand. Write down the tips and enjoy a lot!

New Zealand is known around the world for its sustainable tourism, extreme sports and breathtaking landscapes that seem out of this world. The country has been the location of several iconic films such as the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and The Chronicles of Narnia trilogies.

However, the attractions are not only in New Zealand's natural beauty, but also in the rich Maori culture. Integrated into New Zealand society, the native Maori people present themselves through their own tradition and language, handicrafts, tattoos and typical dances.
