Photos of New Zealand's Maori Art

New Zealand is a land of extraordinary and diverse scenic beauty. This makes it a top travel and vacation destination in the world. A wide variety of natural attractions await here, including rain forests, beautiful beaches, high snow-covered mountains with blue ice glaciers, volcanoes, green rolling hills, hot springs and thermal vents, and unusual wildlife including the extraordinary Kiwi and Penguins. For the adventure traveler, almost every conceivable adventure can be found - helihikes to the top of crevasse-filled glaciers, treks over snow-covered active volcanoes, hikes through rain-forests, surfing, scuba diving, hang-gliding, street luge rides down steep mountain roads, zooming over raging river torrents while hanging from a cable crossing and on and on. I'd return in a heartbeat. This page has photos of the landscapes throughout New Zealand, both North and South Islands. There are photos of the famous popular dayhike known as the Tongariro Crossing, wit photos of the Emerald Lakes and Mt. Ngauruhoe, a heli-hike on the Franz Josef Glacier, with photos of ice caves and blue-ice crevasses, the carved stone faces at Lake Taupo, the beautiful glacial snowmelt of the Huka Falls, the Buller River Gorge, and the Picton Ferry Crossing.
