25 Incredible Photos of NZ's Most Beautiful Island

New Zealand is known to have one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in all the world. The two-island country is divided into a Northern and Southern island. While they are both beautiful, it is the South Island that most naturalists come to see, because there is simply so much to see.

The South Island is famous for having many different settings - from lush, green hills and fields to rocky and snow covered mountains. From crystal clear pools and quiet rivers, to raging seas and huge beaches. Those who go far will even see actual glaciers, as the South Island is quite close to Antarctica.

Enjoy 25 photos that demonstrate the beauty of Nz's South Isle.
