The North Island encompasses most of the Maori culture and the majority of the big cities of the country. Auckland and Wellington keep developing and share the countries gastronomy and cultural activities.
However, the North Island is also the mysterious Waitomo Caves, sailing around the splendid Bay of Islands, Rotorua‘s volcanic region and its geothermal pools. For a little sporty adventures, go surf the waves of Raglan and discover the black sandy beaches of this unusual coast.
One of our absolute favourite experiences of the North Island is the extraordinary hike of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, national park part of the World Heritage List. Go through astonishing landscapes and an active crater.
The variety of things the North Island has to offer makes it a place suitable for everyone. We will help you find the activities you will enjoy.
