By: justin (justin) 2012.01.09

Tourism in New Zealand can take a traditional form, like camping or driving a motor home from town to town. Chat with a sunny-natured Kiwi about contemporary Maori art over a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or catch a rugby match with the All Blacks, named for thier mono-chromatic uniform.
Visitors can also seek out quirkier travel options like heli-skiing, luging, and zorbing in the geothermal area of Lake Rotorua, or a flight over Mt. Doom (AKA Mt. Ruapehu) during a Lord of the Rings tour. With views like the waterfalls of Milford Sound, it's no wonder Peter Jackson chose this beautiful country for his magnificent sets. After seeing such odd wildlife as yellow-eyed penguins or the glow worms of Waitomo Caves, a hobbit spotting might not seem so unlikely!
Bungee jump or skydive -- everybody does it here -- Queenstown is the international hub of extreme sports.
Take the TranzAlpine Train in the south
See the All Black rugby team play and watch their traditional Haka performance before the game.
See Cape Reinga, where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean meet.
Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch – each city has a flavor and history all it’s own.
