New Zealand is divided into two islands that span the north to the south, separated by the Cook Strait. You’ll find New Zealand’s north to be a beautiful mix of lush hills grazed by sheep and covered with mud pools, geysers, and active volcanoes in contrast to the alps, fjords, and glaciers in the south. The weather of New Zealand is on the temperate side for most part of the year. The eastern areas can even get a bit of drought in the summer while the south gets regular rain.
