New Zealand’s North Island, or as it is fondly known, ‘the land of the long white cloud’, is a place that offers an incredible polarization of contrasting natural, historical and cultural aspects. One of the top destinations you’ll find in the North is Auckland as it’s widely considered the hub of the North Island and is consistently rated as one of the top five most liveable cities in the world. During a tour of this city you’ll find a ton of different things to do, including taking in panoramic views from Sky Tower, experiencing the café and boutique culture of Queen Street or tasting your way through the enormous variety of cultural food spots around Viaduct Harbour.
But a North Island tour isn’t complete without visiting Rotorua, a place that’s heavily soaked in Maori traditions and culture of the local Arawa people. The enthusiasm with which the local culture is displayed is truly humbling, and you’ll experience that nowhere better than at The Realm of Tane, a Maori Hangi feast and concert. You’ll also want to experience the various geothermal relaxation activities, including therapeutic thermal springs and sulphur scented sites.
If you’re wanting a full North Island tour, you also can’t miss visiting some other notable places, like the stunning Bay of Islands, Coromandel, Lake Taupo, Napier and Wellington. No matter who you are, or what you’re interested in, The North Island has something for you.
