New Zealand is crammed with geological wonders. The sacred water of Wai-O-Tapu is a thermal wonderland, where you can witness Mother Nature at her most explosive. Its boiling mud pools, geysers and tracts of volcanic land create a landscape rich with vibrant orange, green and blue hues.
For oceanic phenomena visit the Hole in the Rock, off Cape Brett, a 60-foot arch created by centuries of wind and waves. Take a boat trip around this beautiful area and sail through the arch, which the Māori call Motu Kōkako. At the opposite end of the country is Milford Sound. This fjord’s slender inlet is enclosed by sheer rocky walls, with a shallow entrance and deep basin of dark, oxygen-deprived water. Sail around and admire towering cliffs and peaks, spectacular waterfalls and verdant rainforests. The pièce de résistance is the incredible 1,692 metre high Mitre Peak, a stunning slice of New Zealand iconography.
