New Zealand Outdoors

New Zealand is an outdoor recreation paradise. An island nation, the abundance of shorelines, lakes and rivers has instilled a love of water sports and adventure in the hearts of its people. Outdoor recreation in some form or another is enjoyed by the majority of the population.

Boating, fishing, camping, hunting, 4WD and hiking are just some of the activities Kiwi's enjoy.

The country has an astonishing lack of unpleasant creatures - no snakes, crocodiles, alligators, scorpions, tigers, bears etc. That makes for very safe and pleasant camping and hiking excursions. There are a a couple of poisonous spiders but you've pretty much got to go hunting for them to get yourself bitten. However, we do have these little black sand-flies which can be irritating, and an aerosol of insect repellent with a high concentration of Deet is always a good thing to have in your pocket.
