Located in the Pacific Ocean off of the coast of Australia, New Zealand is country renowned for its natural beauty. It is this beauty that inspired filmmakers to film Lord of the Rings here! Over 30% of the country is a national reserve, and there are more sheep than people. Speaking of people, the proper adjective for New Zealanders is Kiwis. Could this country be any more intriguing?
If you enjoy getting out into raw nature, going on epic hikes, and living in the present, New Zealand should be at the top of your bucket list. While it’s biggest cities are Auckland and Christchurch, the most popular places to visit in New Zealand are best reached by RV, which is what has made New Zealand one of the most popular van-life destinations in the world.
