New Zealand on the rocks
If sitting on the deck of a boat, breezy veranda, or sunny patio is not your idea of high adventure, maybe you should consider this one.New Zealand has been known for years for its ruggedly beautiful terrain. In the past decade, rock climbers from across the globe have started to appreciate it, too. A string of mountain peaks works its way down the country South Island like a backbone and dots the coastlines. The weather is almost always perfect, the air is unpolluted and clean, and the views from the tops of these peaks are amazing. This beautiful landscape coupled with high quality limestone rock has put New Zealand top of the list of international climbing destinations.
