Adventure seekers from across the globe comment on the brutal beauty of our untouched country - and one Belgian born travel photographer, Johan Lolos spent seven months documenting just that.
Lolos crossed 25,000km of New Zealand soil from Northland to Wanaka and back again.
His photographs are a reminder to us as kiwis how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful country of pure wilderness, and vast landscapes as far as the eye can see.
Take a look at the gallery of his images...
