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.

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