New Zealand's two islands have quite different characters. While the North Island has a strong Maori influence, dramatic volcanic landscapes
& highly active thermal areas, long beautiful beaches & excellent sailing, the South Island has fewer people, with a slower pace of life dominated by the magnificent snow-covered Southern Alps & the
spectacular fjordlands, with glaciers, deep lakes & verdant forests. With sheep-filled pastures & remote farm settlements backed by snow-covered mountains, it is a photographer's paradise.
