Product Description

North and South Islands on two DVD's. In three months, filmmakers Silke Schranz and Christian Wuestenberg covered 10,000 kilometres in a bought car. They travelled all over the North and South Islands. You can see what they found there in this new double-DVD: fascinating scenery, beautiful coastline and beaches, glaciers, lakes, woods, mountains, villages, cities, waterfalls, rivers, volcanoes, exclusive tips and much, much more. Plenty of information on tours, sailing trips, skydiving, surfing, trekking and prices in New Zealand. Two years of work went into this documentary. The result is a wonderful film about New Zealand and its unique landscape. Run time: 57 minutes per DVD. (114min) Stereo. Made in 2009. Languages: English and German. DVD region code: 0 (Playable worldwide) The film is very different from traditional travel films. There is no advertising, the authors backpacked under their own steam and had three months to film. Informative text, no superficial comments, like "plenty to see for young and old" or "the café invites you to linger". Who is the film aimed at? At anyone who wants to find out what New Zealand has to offer before going there. At those who are looking for especially appealing day trips in New Zealand. At the curious, the enthusiastic, the critical, the passionate, the fun-loving, nature-lovers, travel enthusiasts and individualists. At anyone who has been to New Zealand and would like a souvenir on DVD. What does the film offer? Valuable information and tips on the North and South Islands. A film that makes you want to discover New Zealand for yourself. Because New Zealand is so big and has so much to offer, this information can help you to plan your own trip better.

We watched both films in preparation for our trip to New Zealand, and were really inspired. Great footage, all the highlights, and some unusual places off the beaten track. You get a different perspective than from the standard travel literature, and the light narative style gives the films an entertaining touch.

We are planning a 6 week trip to New Zealand, and the films have helped us to decide on numerous places we definatley wish to visit, as well as a couple that we can happily miss out on.

All in all, two new films that are well worth seeing! We are now looking forward to our trip to New Zealand more than ever.

Both Dvds are excellently researched and produced. They are both informative and entertaining. They manage to give the right level of travel details of what each Island has to offer, and if you have not been to New Zealand before, then you will find these DVDs will "wet your appetitie". If you have been before, then these DVDs will allow you to remember all those wonderful places that you visited. They are excellent value for money, so I strongly recommend that you buy these superb guides. I rate this 5 Stars out of 5 Stars,so please ignore the 1 Star shown above.....I cannot find a way to change it ot 5 Stars!!!

Little gem!

I was given these DVDs by a friend who was trying to convince me to take a trip to New Zealand with her. She chose well - these cracking films made me want to book my flight straight away.

They were totally not what I was expecting - they have a lovely quirky style, and really give you a feel for the place. The scenery is fantastic, and they cover all kinds of stuff I would never have thought of.

There are loads of real insider tips, not just the usual stuff, and it also gave us a good idea of what we don't mind giving a miss - really helpful since we're only planning a three-week trip.

Brilliant stuff!

It's ok. We see a fair bit of the islands which is great but it's more a travelogue of memories for the couple than anything else. I'd have preferred to see a lot more of the island and hear about the history than watch them go sailing, skydiving etc. More scenery and information between stop points as well.

This is very good!

We spent a month driving around New Zealand from 90 mile beach at the top, all the way down to a boat trip over to Stewart Island in the far south. Packed in the adventure: Jumped out of a plane at 15000ft, a bungee jump, paraglide from a mountain top, white water rafting, jet boat, rode horses through sand dunes and across mountain-sides and swam with dolphins (twice!).

New Zealand is a magical place and 'New Zealand - bitten by the travel bug' is both a great 'heads up' to the independent traveller and a wonderful addition to any of your own footage and photos.

Many of the things they see and do in the film, we did too, but there were many things new or different.

We were there Christmas 2004/2005, this film was shot 2009 and as the New Zealanders are constantly inventing new ways to get an adrenalin rush I'm really looking forward to getting back there, to catch up on the latest mad adventure sports! Would love to do some sailing this time as I liked what I saw in the film.

Have Fun!

Steven

Not bad, contains some good basic information on great places to see and cheap places to stay. But film quality is not brilliant - makes me think it was filmed well over 10 years ago but I don't think it was.

I have just spent my Sunday morning watching both these DVD's back to back! Wow... it has been the most wonderful journey which exceeded my expectations... The filming is excellent as is the commentary which gives you a great overview. This has given us a good insight for planning our 3 month trip to NZ which has been truely inspirational. If I had to be negative in any way ... I would have liked to have seen a little more of the Bay of Islands from an aerial view to get a feel for this talked about beautiful place. I would recommend these DVD's to anyone going to or has been to New Zealand it is a "MUST HAVE MUST SEE".

Got this as a gift for my dad who sadly can't travel as he would like to these days (he is 91). He loved the films and mother said he was laughing out loud at points. It was a bit of a punt for me, purchase wise but it paid off. He has loaned them to my brother now , who has friends in NZ but has never been himself. I am hoping to borrow it myself in turn. We'll worth the money I think!
