New Zealand Flight

After flying approximately twenty thousand kilometers, travelers gasp the moment they first catch sight of the two islands on their journey to New Zealand. The two islands of New Zealand are breathtaking, sometimes almost surreal. Lofty mountains, volcanoes that simmer, extensive sandy beaches, grand fjords (in appropriately ,

 

named Fiordland), icy lakesand verdant rainforests make for the perfect setting for the filming of the epic movies The Chronicles of Narnia and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Over a third of the land area of New Zealand is located inside a reserve or park. There are approximately fifteen thousand kilometers of coastline and over twenty five marine reserves.

Although New Zealand is about the same size as the United Kingdom, it only has a population of approximately four million. Its main cities in the North Island such as Wellington and Auckland, and those in the South Island such as Dunedin and Christchurch are bustling and bright without being crowded.
 

Society in New Zealand is multi-cultural and tolerant.

The Maori (indigenous people of New Zealand), posses a fascinating culture which has influenced many aspects of life in New Zealand. Generally, New Zealanders of both Maori and European descent are friendly, laidback, outdoorsy, and rugged.

The peak season months for tourists in New Zealand are during the months of December, January, and February since these are the months of summer in the country.

 

Temperatures average between 20 to 30 degrees centigrade.

The off season months in New Zealand, which generally means lower flight rates, are July and August because these are the winter months. Temperatures average from 10 to 15 degrees centigrade.

 

The shoulder season for travel to New Zealand is from March through May, which are the months of autumn. The country experiences slightly cooler temperatures than in summer but the weather is still ideal, if a bit chilly. Hawke’s Bay and Central Otago showcase breathtaking foliage at this time.
 

It can be great to visit during the spring season too which is from September to November.
