Uncrowded, green, peaceful and accepting: New Zealand is the ultimate escape that few places in the world can match. The sublime forests, mountains, lakes, beaches and fiords have made it one of the best hiking destinations on earth. The awe-inspiring landscapes, lush forests, glacial mountains, amazing wildlife and a rather pleasant climate, make for a haven for vigorous outdoor activities. Maori culture is potent, the surf is world class, and the craft beer is awesome.
Few places in the world have natural landscapes as dramatic as New Zealand's, and it's only logical to find some of the most awe-inspiring golf courses in the land of the long white cloud. Accessibility really sets New Zealand apart from other countries, with a new golf course to try around every corner. Travel from alpine areas to idyllic beachside locations within a few hours.
