A trip to New Zealand also offers great culture

The culture is also unmistakable, which is characterized by many different population groups who have settled in New Zealand.

Practical information

East of Australia, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, lies the elongated two-part island, New Zealand. A trip here is an adventurous experience. The lush landscape is both unique and diverse. The magnificent mountains make their way through nature and divide the land lengthwise. The rushing rivers stand in stark contrast to the windless meadows. Colorful birds fly above us and whales, dolphins and seals swim along the coast.

The people of New Zealand are both hospitable and welcoming. They do not hold back from learning about their great pride – the Maori culture. Here are a variety of traditions that you will see and experience on your New Zealand journey. Among other things, the Maori have a very special war dance, which is now performed at various sporting events. Your trip around New Zealand will be a culturally rich experience with perhaps the world’s most beautiful landscape as a backdrop.

Climate and weather in New Zealand

The impressive country lies on the southern hemisphere of the earth. This means that when you travel to New Zealand, you will experience the opposite season than what you have just left in Denmark. If it’s winter at home, it’s summer in New Zealand and vice versa. The country has its location quite close to Antarctica, where the hole in the ozone layer is relatively large. It provides some rather severe weather conditions.

If you travel in the New Zealand summer, you must be extremely aware of the sun, as you can end up violently burned in a flash – even if the temperature is not so high. In winter, it can feel extremely cold – especially on the south island. Sometimes a blizzard can even occur. Relatively much rain falls in New Zealand and from time to time the amount of landslides. Although New Zealand is a great place to travel at any time of the year, it is important to take the weather conditions seriously.
