New Zealand Natural Phenomena Highlights

Strange and unusual natural phenomena awaits the traveller who checks out New Zealand's idiosyncrasies. Peer into the bright blue of glacier ice, smell the sulphurous steam from a seething geothermal vent, delve into the limestone underworld or watch a waterfall plunge more than 600 metres into one of the world's deepest fiords. Your explorations will be rewarded with a sense of awe that will never quite go away.
