Great country almost like Italy, but with alone 3 million and 800 thousand inhabitants, which live in a pacific nation, organized, with good social services, simple.
It is constituted by two great islands, that of the North warmest and moderate, where the greatest part of the population lives and where there are the greatest city Auckland and the capital Wellington and that of the South, crossed from the Southern Alps which culminate in the Cook (mt 3764) Mountain, with great landscapes, glaciers, lakes, kingdom of the most beautiful nature.
It is beaten from strong winds and it is damp in all the seasons, with abundant rains especially in the western slopes.
It is rich of volcanic (spectacular the geysers and the fumaroles of Rotorua) phenomena and of natural parks.
Absolutely not to lose the crossing from the island of the North (Wellington) to the island of the South (Picton) through the Cook's strait and the magnificent fiord of Picton.
