North Island

New Zealand’s North Island is an essential part of any visit to New Zealand, and its dramatic landscape is dominated by the vast volcanic and geothermal areas around the Rotorua and Taupo. 3 touring routes link the Central North Island , The Thermal Explorer Highway, The Pacific Coast Highway and the Volcanic Loop. The wild shoreline has an abundance of marine life, and the rolling countryside is dotted with fruit orchards and world-class vineyards. The 2 main cities, Auckland and Wellington, deserve a few days of anyone’s time, bustling with activity and events year-round. Prepare to be monumentally impressed.

New Zealand’s seasons are the opposite of our own, and the North Island is generally warmer than the South Island. The summer months (Dec- Feb) see temperatures typically between 20-30°c, with winter (Jun-Aug) cooling down to around 10-15°c. The far north of the North Island is classed as a sub-tropical climate.
