High School in New Zealand

The trip is long, but it’s worth the effort. New Zealand, 1 500 kilometers east of Australia, consists of two main islands and lots of smaller islands of sensational beauty. If you have seen the native son Peter Jackson’s Tolkien films, Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, you will recognize some of the mountains, rivers and meadows from the big screen. But this country is not only something from the movies, it’s for real and it can be your new home!

Skiing and surfing

The North island has a warm climate and the South island, closer to Antarctica, is home to fjords, ski slopes and glaciers. What’s so amazing about this country is that you can go skiing on a volcano and bring your surfboard to catch the perfect wave down by the coastline, all in the same day! It’s a country of contrasts, for sure.

The seasons are the opposite compared to the Northern hemisphere. When Europe has winter, it’s summer in New Zealand. And vice versa. Make sure to pack your bag according to the right season and be prepared to join the adventure that awaits you!
