The North Island of New Zealand is a fantastic mix of stylish cities, panoramic landscapes and endless beaches. Discover Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city or go north, to Auckland the ‘City of Sails’ with its beautiful harbour. Alternatively, experience Maori country and Rotorua’s thermal pools, or take time out and stay at Lake Taupo beneath the soaring volcanic peaks of Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu. For the more active, sail through the spectacular Bay of Islands, swim at a secluded beach or walk in Waitomo’s glow-worms caves.
