New Zealand

First thing about New Zealand is breathtaking beauty , nature that will left you without words. Some of the most popular movies Lord of The Rings was fillmed on locations in New Zealand , Hobbit as well which gave you some kind of clue if you never been there to go and visit this magical place.New Zealand is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean consisting of 2 main islands, both marked by volcanoes and glaciation. Capital Wellington, on the North Island, is home to Te Papa Tongarewa, the expansive national museum. Wellington’s dramatic Mt. Victoria and the South Island’s Fiordland and Southern Lakes stood in for mythical Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” films. This country is also well known by the rugbby all black team who became a famous not just for the game , became famous also by the Maori national game – Haka, a traditional ancestral war cry, dance, or challenge from the Māori people of New Zealand.Beside of this New Zealand has very organize urban cities who offer lot of fun , traditional food restaurants and nigh clubs. On the other hand you have high amazing mountains for hiking  , clear pacific waters for diving and snorkeling and breathtaking volcanoes in the nature.I will just write for some of this places that we visit on our journey.

We start in capital city Wellington .From the Hutt River to the bush-clad hills, Hutt Valley is home to some of the region’s best walking and mountain biking trails. Add to that the picturesque seaside communities of Petone and Eastbourne, and a bustling collection of unique cafes, restaurants and shops – all just a short drive from downtown Wellington. Escape to Kāpiti for it’s unspoilt beaches and warm, coastal climate. Swim, sail and surf… or just relax on the sand, take in the view and eat some local fish and chips. Go on a trip to the renowned nature reserve, Kāpiti Island, for its unique birdlife and native bush or try walking and cycling on one of the coastal tracks. Home to world famous sauvignon blanc and one fifth of New Zealand’s coastline, Marlborough combines water, wine and wilderness. Located at the top of the South Island, just a 20 minute flight from Wellington or take the scenic route on the Interislander ferry.

At the edge of Whangarei, a sleepy town in the often overlooked Northland, the Abbey Caves hold some of the best displays of amassed glowworms in New Zealand, though the secret is well kept. Walk through ancient-looking fields studded with stands of web-pocked monoliths, climb the stepping stool over a gnarled fence, and slither into the slippery throat of Organ Cave, the first of the three caverns, where you’ll walk shin-deep along 200 yards of a subterranean stream to a vast canvas of glowworms. Then head to the poorly marked Middle Cave to find fluted limestone stalactites and constellations of glowworms streaked across the ceiling like a green Milky Way. Drop last into Ivy Cave through a steep and bouldery descent alongside a rushing stream. You’ll plunge deep into a room with dripping walls and a cavernous ceiling of speckled phosphorescence before trudging back through muddy grass to your car.
 Wake early and in awe at Luxmore Hut atop a fairy-tale blanket of white clouds hovering over an invisible, mountain-ringed Lake Te Anau. Thus begins your second day on the four-day Kepler Track, one of New Zealand’s famed Great Walks. You’ll have company on this popular route, but you’ll hardly notice as you climb the tussock-lined ridge amid frosted alpine peaks rising steeply out of the South Fiord of the lake. Take the 10-minute side hike up 4,829-foot Mt. Luxmore for a mesmerizing Fiordland panorama as the cloud blanket disperses in the rising sun. Several scenic miles later, you’ll zigzag down 93 knee-pounding switchbacks (count ‘em) into a verdant hanging valley to the Iris Burn Hut or tent site, a tufted field with mountain views at the forest edge.
If you are more into scuba diving and water sports  there is plenty of companies and resorts that offer this kind of service. We have been north near Auckland. We enjoy in amazing clean water during the day and amazing night life of Auckland during the night.
Auckland was our last stop before we fly back. Vibrant city that offer many things from busy streets full with shopping malls to small streets that offer some of the finest galleries or restaurants.
