Safe and peaceful
The 2013 Global Peace Index ranked New Zealand as the world’s third most peaceful nation, after Iceland and Denmark. This demonstrates the political stability and social tolerance that are hallmarks of New Zealand’s democracy.
New Zealand’s safe and peaceful character is complemented by a wonderful sense of adventure. With volcanoes, high snow-covered mountains, spectacular lakes and white sandy beaches, New Zealand is a land of unparalleled beauty.
New Zealand’s pristine landscape provides the backdrop for some extreme outdoor activities. From mountain climbing – which embodies the spirit of New Zealand’s greatest adventurer, Sir Edmund Hillary – to the thrill of bungy jumping, skydiving and white water rafting, New Zealand is for lovers of the great outdoors.
