Reasons to Visit New Zealand
First of all, New Zealand is a great place for nature and adventure lovers. It is so peaceful and beautiful. I found that there were many solo travelers, female in particular, traveling around the country, and it was not at all difficult to make friends.
You can go hiking if you aren’t really into extreme sports, such as bungee jumping or sky diving. I didn’t have any safety concerns during my trip, so I recommend you do what I did: just sit back and enjoy the views and nature.
