North Island INTRODUCTION
Set apart from the South Island by its geothermal activity, Maori historic sites and the cosmopolitan allure of Auckland, the North Island breathes history and culture into New Zealand.
In Rotorua, watch as the landscape comes to life with bubbling mud pools, spurting geysers and steaming volcanic vents.
White Island lies just off the shore, the Waitomo Caves come alight with glowworms and Hobbiton holds Middle Earth adventures for fans of the world-famous films. Start where it all began at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in the Bay of Plenty.
To this day, most Maori people live on the North Island, as does three quarters of the entire New Zealand population.
The nation’s Capital, Wellington, treasures the famous Museum Te Papa and serves sumptuous food and wine well supplied by the outpourings from the island's Hawke’s Bay wine region.
Here you can sip on reds like Merlot and Syrah, and spend leisurely days cycling through vineyards or sitting by the ocean.
