Overseas clients usually combine their medical trip to New Zealand with a tourist opportunity...
in this beautiful country described by Agatha Christie:  "I think New Zealand is the most beautiful country I have ever seen!".

Mark Twain commented in 1899: "They stopped here on their way home to heaven, thinking they had arrived".

New Zealand offers unique opportunities to Bungy Jump in the land where it was invented, Jet Boat in the land where these were invented, climb high peaks in the land that Sir Edmund Hillary called home, to fly in modern aircraft in the country where the first manned, powered flight on a monoplane occured, and perhaps to study in the land of Sir Ernest Rutherford's birth, the man who split the atom.  "Lord of the Rings", "The World's Fastest Indian", "Whale Rider"  were some of the famous films made here.
Perhaps hunting, fishing, diving, hiking, gliding, caving, or photography interest you...We have it all in New Zealand:  www.tourism.net.nz
