New Zealand Landscape

Tourists find they can only ever skim the surface of New Zealand’s spectacular scenery, even those born in New Zealand say they still have much to see.

The country has a huge variety of landscape, from spectacular mountain ranges to sunny beaches, glistening glaciers to luscious forests. 

Of course, those of us who have watched Lord of The Rings have been given a showcase of New Zealand's scenery - Mt Doom was inspired by Mount Ngauruhoe in the South Island, Anduin River was in fact Waiau River in Fiordland National Park, and Hobbiton's party tree was found in a green valley in the North Island's Matamata. 

Wherever you are in New Zealand you're never far away from a breath-taking scene, whether human built or natural.

Take a look at our Pinterest boards where we've collected together many beautiful pictures of New Zealand's various landscapes.
