Journey Through New Zealand In 3 Minutes

Written by  Ludovic Gibert

Why travelers are flocking to New Zealand is not just for the hobbit village. Travel video creator Ludovic Gibert takes us on an extraordinary journey through New Zealand in this stunning 3-minute video to explain why.  Thoughtfully edited, he presents a compelling picture of the magnificence of New Zealand, from its beautiful people, to its incredibly colorful landscape.

His video title references the original Maori name of the island, Aotearoa, meaning land of the long white cloud, and throughout the video we feel a sense of truly experiencing the natural splendor of this rugged island nation.  It's a visual treat for the eyes and a reminder that New Zealand is a land of spectacular beauty from its expansive mountain ranges to its vast coastlines and an irresistable destination for adventurers and thrill-seekers.

Take a few minutes and let your mind escape to the land of the Kiwis.  Then watch this video again and again and perhaps the question of why you should travel to New Zealand may be answered.
