New Zealand's North Island - come and experience this amazing island.

From the stunning bays and beaches of the Coromandel region and the Bay of Islands, to the geothermal wonders and Maori cultural delights of Rotorua, the North Island has something for everyone.

Other major attractions on the North Island are the Waitomo Caves, Auckland (the "City of Sails"), the Nation's Capital, Wellington, Lake Taupo, Hawkes Bay (famous for its wineries), the volcanic Ruapehu, and Eastland, to name a few.

South Island Itineraries

We also have a range of itineraries showcasing the spectacular South Island. The South Island is very different to the North Island, and many believe that the scenery is more spectacular, with attractions such as Milford Sound, Queenstown and the West Coast and glaciers to name a few.

Why not combine one of our North Island itineraries with one of our South Island itineraries?
