Often likened to paradise on earth, Aotearoa New Zealand is perhaps best-known for the magnificence of its diverse scenery, which encompasses towering alpine vistas, lush native forests and golden sand beaches. The land and environment that are so unique to New Zealand are inextricably linked to the culture and traditions of its indigenous Māori people, and to their stories that have been passed down through the generations.
These pūrākau (stories, legends) can be experienced by manuhiri (visitors) to Aotearoa on a Scenic 5-star handcrafted land journey.
