Though a relatively small country, the two islands of New Zealand are home to a remarkable diversity of wildlife, geology, and climate. Because of its geographic isolation, the country contains many plants and animals that are found nowhere else in the world, including its national icon, the kiwi bird. Fans of the Lord of the Rings movies will be delighted to know that much of those films were shot on location in New Zealand, and many guided tours are available through the landmarks of Middle Earth.
