  • Experience the natural beauty of the Bay of Islands, from forests of ancient kauri trees and clear blue lakes to mystical waterfalls and caves filled with glow worms.

  • Come face to face with unforgettable natural wonders during a day in Tongariro National Park, where you can hike, mountain bike or soar overhead in New Zealand’s largest gondola.
  • Discover the famous sulphur hot pools of Rotorua, then sit down to a dinner you won’t forget – a traditional Maori hangi meal cooked underground with hot stones.
Start in Auckland and end in Wellington, the trip "New Zealand North Island Adventure" is a guided explorer tour that takes 14 days. You will travel through Wellington, Coromandel Peninsula, Tutukaka and 6 other destinations in New Zealand.

As Maori legend goes, New Zealand’s North Island was heaved out of the ocean by the demigod Maori on a fishing trip, then his brothers carved out pieces of their giant catch, creating the peaks, rivers and valleys that make up the island today. Discover this rugged landscape with a rich cultural history on an in-depth 14-day adventure. Soak up sun in the Bay of Islands’, walk through Coromandel Forest Park, sink into hot pools in Rotorua, marvel at the massive Lake Taupo, explore the varied landscapes of Tongariro National Park and sip local wine in Napier. Travel with a local leader and discover New Zealand’s beauty beyond the obvious.
