Home to the Hobbits and glowworms, North Island is packed with culture and natural attractions. This area also provides many opportunities to learn about the Māori - the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand. From subtropical beaches just north of Auckland to volcanoes and geysers in the central region and lively Wellignton in the south, your options are next to endless!
Lush and tranquil rainforests next to icy glaciers, rugged shoreline, mirror-surfaced lakes, fjords, and snow-topped mountains - this is the New Zealand and dramatic scenery many visitors dream of. South Island sure does have it all, which makes it one of the best places in the world for an adrenaline junkie: activities include but are not limited to surfing, canyoning, and skiing.
