Classic North Island
Begin your Classic North Island holiday in Auckland, the ‘city of sails’ and New Zealand’s largest and most ethnically diverse city. Drive south to the bubbling geysers and hot springs of Rotorua and discover the significant geothermal activity in this region with a naturalist-guided tour. Learn about the indigenous Maori population of New Zealand in an evening cultural performance and traditional meal. Explore the beautiful city of Napier with its art deco architecture and sample some of the country’s best wines with over 200 wineries here. Drive via Martinborough to finish your journey in Wellington, the “coolest little capital in the world”, but we recommend staying a few days here to explore all that it has to offer.
