Kia Ora! Kia Ora is a greeting from the New Zealand Māori language and is widely used to say "Hello". Discover New Zealand, the active way! Walk in ancient rainforests, swim with dolphins, kayak on the fjords, soak in natural hot springs, picnic on a remote mountain peak, cycle through vineyards, hike on a glacier, meet the friendly New Zealand people and immerse yourself in our culturally rich, unique and spectacular country.
