Experience the North Island
Swim, surf and kayak in pristine Pacific waters then head inland for beautiful river walks and swimming spots set in bush-clad hills. The spectacular scenery of the North Island is not to be missed!
Take a surfing lesson on Waihi Beach, sail a land yacht, cycle the Hauraki Rail Trail, test your courage in the Adrenalin Forest, swim at Owharoa Falls, explore the Karangahake Gorge, and climb the Papamoa Hills trail for breath-taking views of the Bay of Plenty.
Time for something a little less strenuous? Picnic under pohutukawa trees on a white sandy beach, visit a heritage farm park, learn about Maori culture or try a Maori hangi, go caving at Waitomo, visit a working farm, and dig your own private seawater pool at Hot Water Beach.
Ready to wind down? Soak in a natural spring, hang with the locals at the weekly markets, enjoy a spot of retail therapy at Waihi, dine on fresh seafood including whitebait and paua (abalone) fritters, and wash it down with a bottle of premium wine.
