Discover the amazing NEW ZEALAND in 25 pictures

New Zealand is without any question, one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited. It is a diverse country, that offers great metropolitan cities, amazing mountains and hills, Ancient Kauri trails, great wine and food, glaciers and some of the best treks in the world. New Zealand offers something for everyone. 

I traveled through South and North Islands by car, and I had the opportunity to discover something fascinating in each corner of New Zealand. Enjoy New Zealand through my lenses and if you haven't yet,  you should consider to add New Zealand to your travel bucket list!

NORTH Island

Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a World Heritage site with volcanic landscape and it is considered one of the best hikings in the world
It took me approx. 8 hours to hike the 19.4 km (12 miles). The hiking is very steep climbs and the weather is unpredictable - but still the best hiking I've ever done
Blue Lake, one of many lakes during the hiking and it the color is result of minerals leaching from the thermal area
Hobbiton movie set is an amazing place to visit and to really feel inside the Lord of Rings movie for a day
