New Zealand is easily one of the most beautiful places on earth.

That’s an easy statement to make for people who have already been there, as they will know exactly why.

From the volcanoes, mountains, glaciers – to the stunning coastline and everything in-between, it’s an unforgettable destination.

Along with Iceland, it’s just one of those magical places on earth where everything comes together in nature to give you a display of the sheer beauty of this planet.

With cheaper flights now coming into Auckland from places such as Singapore and Bangkok, its now a lot easier to reach for those on a budget, and once there you will find a great travellers scene with brilliant hostels and easy hitch-hiking.

These 35 images were taken from a one month trip to the country during Autumn, one of the best times of the year to go there.

So if you want to escape into nature on one of the more remoter places in the world, then New Zealand should be high on your list.

Hopefully some of these pictures will inspire you. What do you think?
