Mª Carmen Sánchez Ramírez
2º Bachillerato Curso 2012/13
New Zealand is a small country, but rich in
scenery and nature.
You will find all kinds of landscapes: black sand
beaches, active volcanoes, snow capped
mountains, glaciers to 300 meters high,
impenetrable forests, fjords and islands
New Zealand is also called the Switzerland of
the southern hemisphere, we hope to meet a
westernized country.The supermarkets, public
transport, major cities, family customs and
some landscapes are very similar to those of
Switzerland, but also very different.
The vast majority of exterior of “The Lord of the Rings‘” was filmed in New
Zealand.The country of the antipodes was the ideal place for the making of the
film, because it is a country virtually isolated,
