New Zealand offers a sample of every possible landscape within a relatively small country, from rolling green farmland to barren volcanic desert areas, from golden beaches with clear blue water to majestic snow-covered mountains. New Zealand is similar in size to the United Kingdom or Japan but the population is only about 3.8 million. Most of the people live in urban areas, so the countryside is very sparsely populated.
