New Zealand is a land of adventures. The Island is surrounded by the raging waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea, sculpting the coastline. The active volcanoes on North Island continuously build new landscapes, eroded by heavy rain and mighty windstorms. Sitting atop the boundary between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates, the island is shaken by frequent earthquakes. The rising summits are among the highest in Oceania. New Zealand landscapes tell the story of their geological past, revealing the origin of plant and animal diversity and the beauty of this part of the globe. Local guides and scientists help us discover the stunning geology of New Zealand through the exploration of the Bohemia cave system, the descent of dizzy canyons and the ascent of some of the island’s highest summits and volcanoes.
