New Zealand might be known for their indigenous people - Maori. However New Zealand is also the land that grows superior quality hops- the major flavouring and stabilizing agent in beer. Do try the Hopwired for that underlying bitterness and full bodied flavour and the Emersons pilsner and the sauvignon bomb.

5Heli-skiing for an adrenaline rush like no other
Heli-skiing for an adrenaline rush like no other

Take a plunge from the helicopter, land on a snow-covered mountain and ski your way down at Wanaka. All of this, with the Southern Alps and Mount Aspiring National Park, literally in front of you.

Located just hours away from Queenstown, this is the perfect spot for heli-skiing with fresh powders, huge vertical descents, incredible terrain, and wild beauty. It is suitable for beginners and advanced skiers. 

When there is so much safety precaution before heli-skiing, it’s better to take your own precautionary methods before you even go on vacation by getting your trip insured. It’s always good to know you’re safe in air, snow, and land. 

HolidayIQ traveller Omesh Chandna says “I had one of the best times in my life after visiting New Zealand. The whole country is full of beautiful sceneries and friendly people. Queenstown is near to the adventure activities.”

The land of Maoris and Rainbows

It’s difficult to describe the beauty of this country. The land of rainbows. Amazing fauna. The place where all Adventure enthusiasts must go to. The Maori culture. The glow worm caves. The Mou zip line tour.
It’s worth a visit once in a lifetime.

New Zealand Overview

New Zealand is an island country that is located in Oceania region. It primarily comprises two large islands, North Island and South Island. Several smaller islands like Stewart Island and Chatham Island are also part of the country.

Isolated from the other land masses, New Zealand lies in the south-western Pacific Ocean. The closest neighbours of the country are New Caledonia, Tonga and Fiji. Australia is located 2000 kilometres northeast of New Zealand.

Of the two large islands of New Zealand, the North Island is mainly volcanic and has the highest mountain of the country, Mount Ruapehu, which is an active volcano. South Island, the largest landmass of the country is mountainous, with the Southern Alps cutting through the length. The longest river that flows through the country is Waikato, in North Island.

The last major land mass that was discovered on earth is New Zealand, which makes it the youngest country on earth. The history of the country traces its roots back to 1250 AD, when Polynesians settled on the land.  The Maori people, who are the descendants of Polynesians, inhabited the land and developed its distinct culture.

In 1642 AD, the first European explorer, Abel Tasman from Holland, arrived in the country. Abel Tasman left the country in 1770 after the clash with Maori people. After 100 years, the next European, James Cook sailed to New Zealand. Following him, Jean Francois Marie de Surville also arrived on the island. After 1790, French, British and American settlements started in the country.

Missionaries arrived in around 19th century to convert the Maori into Christianity. In around 1839, the British government announced the colonisation of New Zealand. The Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the British and Maori people on 6 February 1840.

A dispute over the true meaning of the treaty led to the New Zealand War that lasted for about 20 years. Following the battle of Gate Pa, New Zealand became a self governing nation in 1852 within the British Commonwealth.

New Zealand is inhabited by around 4.4 million people, out of which 78% are European. Maori people constitute only 14.6% of the total population. New Zealand is also resided by 9.2% Asians and 6.9% people having Pacific origin. About 98% of the population in New Zealand speak English. After English, Samoan is the most widely spoken non-official language.

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand, but Auckland is the largest city as well as the international gateway to the country. New Zealand can be visited year round.
