Nature in New Zealand is truly one of the most wonderful in the world. The beautiful sandy beaches, glaciers, mountains, rainforests, lakes, geysers and volcanoes are unforgettable. The water around the New Zealand Islands are home to coral reefs, shipwrecks and overwhelming fish species. Quite ideal to go scuba diving. Animals that often occur are whales, dolphins, seals and some rare species of birds. Furthermore, the islands are known for rugby, cricket and golf and of course the important wine and kiwi production.
