The Green Landscapes Of New Zealand

“From the undeveloped interiors of Caribbean islands to the virgin jungles of southwestern Africa to the temperate rain forests of Oceania and the Pacific Northwest, it is possible to trek through a huge variety of rainforest landscapes,” writes Rashmi Hemrajani for The Economic Times India. New Zealand is one of those destinations.

In New Zealand “a tourist can experience mountain vistas, expanse of sea and unique flora and fauna”. According to Hemrajani “the yellow flowers of the kowhai tree are some of the prettiest nature lovers can see”.

She also recommends heading towards New Zealand’s North Island to “see the beautiful pohutukawa tree with its bright red flowers bloom in December, giving it the title of New Zealand’s Christmas tree.”

New Zealand’s national parks, forest areas and reserves are the best places to observe the country’s native flora and fauna. These parks also “provide opportunity for a wide variety of activities including hiking, mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding, kayaking and trout fishing,” as reported in the article.
