New Zealand was made in heaven for touring!

Stretching some 1,600km north to south with two main islands, New Zealand is unique. The South Island combines lovely vineyards and breathtaking coastal scenery with immense fjords, mountains and glaciers. The North Island is more tropical with amazing beaches and stunning volcanic backdrops. With only 4 million inhabitants there's a lot of wide open spaces. Now add perfectly surfaced winding roads, amazing scenery, friendly people and a wide range of landscapes and the result is the best touring in the world!
