New Zealand North Island





From Cape Reinga, where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific, the North island stretches to the Cook Strait, your cross-over to the South Island..

About 75% of New Zealand's population lives on the North Island, with two of New Zealand's largest cities swallowing the majority.

Auckland, the largest in the North, is an ideal home base from where  to explore the picturesque Bay of Islands and the Coromandel, while Wellington, the capital, is located at the southern extremity of the island.

The mountainous center of the island offers geological wonders, Lake Taupo & Lake Rotorua and Tongariro National Park ( featured in the "Lord of the Rings"), New Zealand's oldest National Park that houses a number of Maori religious sites.
