The North Island of New Zealand enjoys a warm, temperate climate and is known for its volcanic activity, beaches, national parks and cosmopolitan cities. Home to about three-quarters of New Zealand’s population, it has the country’s largest city, Auckland. Surrounded by bays and islands, it’s known as the “the City of Sails.” At its southern tips is the harbourside capital Wellington, home to government and the national museum, Te Papa.
Packing in cosmopolitan cities, tranquil beaches, rolling farmland, world class wines, authentic opportunities to experience Maori culture, and the country’s bubbling volcanic heart, the North Island is an exceedingly versatile destination.
