The New Zealand–North Island Encompassed tour starts in Auckland and ends in Wellington. The New Zealand–North Island Encompassed is a Photography and Art Tours tour that takes 10 days taking you from Auckland to Wellington and 6 other destinations in New Zealand. The New Zealand–North Island Encompassed tour includes accommodation, staff & experts, meals included, transport and some activities. Please see the Includes section for more information.

New Zealand’s North Island thoroughly engages the body and the spirit, often at the same time. This ten-day trip promises loads of both. Up here, you’ll pick up some sustainable living tips on a conservation farm and learn Maori culture straight from the source while bunking in villages in the bush. Elsewhere, you’ll sea kayak in a secluded harbour, get a surfing lesson from an expert, and overnight on a houseboat. There’s much more, but we’ve gotta leave some surprises, right?
