New Zealand | Newmarket Holidays

As one of the last places on the planet to be settled, New Zealand is a place unlike any Newmarket Holidaysother. The unique, famous Maori culture permeates the islands that now also feature minorities of Asian and Pacific Islander descent as well as a European majority. This cultural mix makes for a cultural vibrancy that adds to the appeal of the stunning, unspoiled natural beauty of the islands. The country is particularly appealing to travellers because it combines the idyll of the Pacific and its one of a kind beauty with modern and developed infrastructure and cities. The geographical and cultural character of the North and South islands differ, but each region of New Zealand, let alone each island, has many sights to see and experiences to be had.

Although it is a modern and highly developed country, New Zealand is far from overpopulated. This is good news for travellers as it means that the country is not overdeveloped and has not had its natural beauty spoiled. Still, it retains urban appeal as well as rural; man-made fascinations as well as natural ones. As part of its long isolation, New Zealand developed vegetation and wildlife distinct from that found in the rest of the world. The topography of the country is also distinct, notable for rugged natural beauty as well as a wide diversity of terrain. It should come as no surprise that New Zealand was so isolated from the rest of the world and for so long –  it is, after all,  around 1,000 kilometres south of the Pacific islands of New Caledonia, Fiji and Tonga.

Because New Zealand was first settled by the Maori and only a few centuries later by Europeans, travellers will find that they will encounter interesting and unique culture on the islands. They will also feel at home as Westerners while being able to witness and experience the unique culture of the Maoris, and also of the Asian and Pacific Islander minorities, and what they have contributed to the modern country that is New Zealand.

Leading UK travel specialist Newmarket Holidays offers escorted holidays to New Zealand that enables travellers to experience the best New Zealand has to offer culturally and in terms of nature. Customers will experience safe and comfortable travel, quality accommodations and enjoy the country itself, where bustling resorts and major cities are never far from beautiful natural landscapes.

New Zealand | Newmarket Holidays

New Zealand combines the stunning beauty and idyllic quality of Pacific islands with a modern, developed urban landscape. Geographically speaking, New Zealand is composed of two main islands, the North and South Islands. Each island has its own character, both geographically and culturally, but both offer a plethora of sights to see and some of the most stunning natural beauty anywhere in the world. New Zealand is modern but retains an untouched quality. Because of how remote it is (around 1,000 kilometres south of New Caledonia, Tonga, and Fiji), it is one of the last places on earth to have been occupied by humans. Having been isolated from human settlers for such a long time, New Zealand’s flora and fauna are distinctive, as is its topography, resulting in a rugged natural beauty.

New Zealand’s first settlers were the Maori people of Polynesian descent. The Maori developed their own distinct culture on the islands. A few centuries later came the Europeans. Europeans now make up the majority of the population, with the population also including large minorities of Maori, Asian, and Pacific Islander descent. Because of New Zealand’s mostly European inhabitants and culture, the country will not seem unfamiliar to Westerners, but travellers can still encounter varying cultures, both indigenous and immigrant.

Newmarket HolidaysAn escorted holiday such as those offered by Newmarket Holidays will cover the majority of the country’s highlights, both natural and cultural. Vibrant resort towns and major cities are only a short distance away from stunning natural vistas. New Zealand has everything from alpine regions to rainforests on the South Island. The North Island features a remarkable, unforgettable desert landscape at Tongariro National Park, with several volcanoes to see, as well as ancient thermal spas.

Travellers can experience the authentic Maori culture as well as encounter strange and exotic wildlife. The country’s seascapes are beautiful, while its cities offer travellers everything they could want from a modern city, including sophisticated accommodation for a good night’s rest and relaxation.

It is no wonder that New Zealand has been used for big-budget film production, given the diversity of its landscapes. Most famous of the movies shot in New Zealand are the “Lord of the Rings” films, which take full advantage of the variety of landscapes and the sheer beauty of New Zealand’s islands. An escorted holiday to New Zealand can be genuinely good-value, offering comfortable accommodation and informative tours while one takes in the natural beauty.
