Insight Guide New Zealand is a comprehensive, full colour travel guide to this small but amazingly diverse country, and provides both inspiration and information to plan a memorable trip. The Best Of New Zealand section is our pick of the top attractions and unmissable experiences such as walking on Franz Josef Glacier, discovering the Waitomo glow-worm caves, and taking a jetboat ride on the Dart River through the pristine Mount Aspiring National Park. Lively features immerse you in New Zealand's fascinating history and culture, exploring Maori handicrafts and traditions as well as contemporary Kiwi music, theatre and film. We also show you where to sample the country's high-quality food and wine, try out adrenaline-pumping outdoor activities, and get up close to gurgling geysers and other sulphurous geothermal wonders. The Places section covers the entire country in detail, from the sun-kissed capital, Auckland, in the north to the remote Fiordland National Park in the South. There are insightful descriptions of all the main attractions, and detailed, full-colour maps for easy orientation, plus beautiful photography throughout. The Travel Tips section provides comprehensive planning information, and our independent reviews of selected hotels and restaurants lead you to the most authentic establishments.
