Aotearoa – Land of the Long White Cloud
New Zealand is like a microcosm of all the world’s attractions. You can trek on the slopes of active volcanoes, or in remote rugged patches of virgin rainforest, through thermal areas of geysers and boiling mud, or kauri forests with some of the largest and oldest trees on Earth.
You can swim with dolphins, watch whales, see glaciers descending into rainforests, fish for trouth in cold, pristine streams and see fur seals and penguins swimming around your boat as you cruise on remote fiords.
The adventurous can go white-water rafting, cave rafting, rock and mountain climbing, tandem skydiving, bungy jumping, skiing down long glaciers and much more.
Plus there are many chances to experience the fascinating Maori culture and the warmth of New Zealand’s friendly people.
For our cultural exchange options, we have predominately chosen areas in terms of natural beauty and the possibility of being part of it, not just as a tourist but as somebody who gets a glimpse of living in paradise!
