The Best of the North: New Zealand's Top North Island Spots

Starting from $2500 USD
The Best of the North: New Zealand's Top North Island Spots
I've lived and breathed so many of these amazing locations since I live in the North Island myself. I have visited many of the locations in this guide in different seasons and in all kinds of light. If I'm recommending you to visit them on your trip of a lifetime, it's because their appeal and beauty transcend any given day or time. The amazing variety of scenery of New Zealand's North Island has a tendency to be overshadowed by the grandeur of South Island mountains and lakes pulling travellers immediately south. Let me tell you, you will NOT regret for a minute taking this trip to explore the amazing beaches and waterfalls, lakes and mountains on offer here. Where the South Island might take out the prize for the best mountain, the North Island firmly beats it with its hundreds of Instagram-worthy beaches and lush waterfalls flowing in virgin native forest. If you like nature photography, adventure and a bit of luxury, this trip is perfect for you!
