Meet Your Host Country: New Zealand

The nation of New Zealand is made up of two main islands, North and South, located in the South Pacific Ocean. Remote and bursting with natural wonders, it is home to strong indigenous culture, active volcanoes, award-winning Marlborough wines, and bustling metropolitan cities.

December brings springtime in New Zealand. With mild weather and quiet tourism, this is a perfect time for us to take to the trails and get lost in the remote beauty of South Island.

Māori Culture

The Māori are the indigenous people of New Zealand, known to them as Aotearoa. Arriving from Polynesia over 1000 years ago, Maori traditions continue to be an integral part of culture on the island. 

Māori culture extends far and wide and can be found in art, cultural performance, and even attitudes throughout New Zealand.

Middle Earth in the South Pacific

No discussion of New Zealand is complete without a mention of The Lord of the Rings. Over 150 locations across the country were used to film the entirety of the movie trilogy


Thanks to these films, New Zealand's vast plains, rolling hills, and sheer mountain walls are ingrained in our popular culture.
