Welcome to Exploring New Zealand, an ever-evolving guide to the beautiful country of New Zealand, covering attractions, accommodation, places to eat and drink, tours, cultural experiences and a whole lot more...
Elsewhere, you'll find general articles about many major areas, written by an experienced NZ travel writer, along with stunning photographs.
You can also read about the Lord of the Rings themed tour that inspired this site.
Please come back frequently, as we're always adding new material! In fact, a team from Exploring.co.nz criss-crossed both islands during an intense two-week period in February, and we had a ton of great experiences we'd love to share!
