From the wild surf beaches of Northland's west coast to the fissured coastline of Fiordland, New Zealand is a canvas for boundless diversions. From moody strolls along windswept beaches and multi-day tramps over alpine passes to the adrenalin-charged adventure activities of bungy jumping and whitewater rafting, some visitors take on New Zealand as a kind of large-scale assault course, aiming to tackle as many adventures as possible in the time availiable. "The Rough Guide to New Zealand" provides a comprehensive guide to this capital of outdoor pursuits. This edition contains sections on rugby and the New Zealand film industry, including full coverage of "The Lord of the Rings" more
