North Island, New Zealand

If you’re considering a tour of New Zealand then discovering the beautiful North Island needs to be one the agenda. New Zealand, fondly known as the land of the long white cloud, is an incredible mix of modern vibrancy, ancient culture and exciting adventure – each of which the North Island has in spades.

Regardless of where you’re coming from, you’ll probably find yourself starting off your tour in Auckland, or Tamaki Makau Rau, meaning ‘the maiden with one hundred suitors’. Before getting started exploring the streets of Auckland, get some perspective from Sky Tower, the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere. To then take in the vast cultural diversity of Auckland, you should check out Queen Street, Elliot Stables’ gourmet food village as well as all the incredible restaurants to explore around Viaduct Harbour. There’s also Mt. Eden just outside Auckland where you’ll get a more mountainous perspective of this beautiful city.

There’s also an array of other beautiful cities in the North Island for you to discover as well as an enormous amount of natural beauty. Rotorua, Bay of Islands, Coromandel, Lake Taupo, Napier and Wellington each have their own truly impressive things to boast about so no matter where you go, you’re bound to find something to fall in love with.
