New Zealand, known as The Land of the Long White Cloud, encompasses two major islands stretching north and south and separated by Cook Strait. They are fringed with numerous smaller islands. It is a unique land of breathtaking scenery, craggy coastlines, golden beaches, lush rainforests, snow-capped mountains, bubbling volcanic pools, rivers jumping with rainbow trout, and glacier-fed lakes. Pair this with a thriving indigenous Maori culture, bustling cosmopolitan cities, traditional towns and friendly people, and you have an outstanding and unusual combination. New Zealand is a world leader in eco-tourism, and has developed into one of the cleanest and greenest countries to visit. World-renowned wines, wonderful cuisine, national parks, alpine tracks, bungee jumping, white-water rafting and more make New Zealand the perfect destination for MICE.
