Mitre Peak Milford Sound

The population is just over 4m and in a country 10% larger than the UK there is no shortage of space. Urban areas and some highways can be busy and not always cycle-friendly - particularly in the smaller North Island which has three quarters of the population. However of far more interest to most, is the extensive coastline and scenery plus the mixture of mountains, volcanoes, glaciers, and hot springs.

New Zealand has also invested in cycle tourism with some awesome trails - together known as Nga Haerenga - the New Zealand Cycle Trail.
The climate is mild and temperate most of the year, ranging from sub-tropical up north to alpine in the south - however despite the abundance of excellent snow fields, the weather is rarely extreme either way. Rainfall is fairly high (especially in the winter on the North Island and summer on the South Island) with the effect of making the landscape lush with vegetation across the country.
