Known to the Māori people as “The Land of the Long White Cloud” and to Lord of the Rings fans as Middle Earth, New Zealand is a country rich with indigenous culture, gorgeous fjords, lush rainforests, and serene beaches. Rick Steves tour guide Colin Mairs, who relocated from his native Scotland to New Zealand, takes us on a tour of his adopted homeland—from glowworm caves to Victorian towns and from Māori cultural sites to “the Edinburgh of the South.” Accompanying our tour is a Kiwi feast of pavlova, Anzac biscuits, and New Zealand wine.
