What are New Zealand's best volcanoes for tourists?

New Zealand might seem like a pleasant, peaceful country, and do you know what? For the most part, it is. Sheep don’t get involved in much crime, after all. However, beneath the crust of the Earth lies a tumultuous hive of activity that has literally shaped the nation. It’s called the Pacific Ring of Fire, and it’s the product of tectonic plate movement that has forced up the mountain ranges we see today, such as the Southern Alps (notice how they are all in a big line?).

What to bring on your winter road trip holiday to New Zealand

 

New Zealand is a winter wonderland. Whether you’re exploring the winding mountain roads of the South Island or the great, undulating hills of the north, you’ll see craggy peaks lit up with brilliant hues of white. Unless you visit north of Auckland, where it’s a subtropical climate, the chances you are going to see Kiwi country with a plentiful dollop of snow.

If you are renting a car and going on a NZ winter road trip, ensure that you have these items packed and ready.
