Why choose tours on the New Zealand North Island?
The North Island is a land of extremes, where you will discover New Zealand’s largest city, our country’s richest cultural heritage, and some of New Zealand’s most unique landscapes. And of course our most idyllic beaches!
Any guided tour is guaranteed to impress you with its variety. Surprises lie around every corner.
Here are a few reasons why you might choose one of our top NZ North Island Tours for your next vacation.
While the South Island is known for its mountains, the North Island is famous for its beaches, volcanoes and much, much more.
Venture deep beneath the earth on a glowworm tour, bask in the tropical splendour of a golden-sand beach, catch your breath at the magnificence of the volcanic peaks, unwind in a rejuvenating sulphur spa, and take part in a dazzling Maori cultural show.
With only a short distance between each destination, you can devote your holiday to relaxing and immersing yourself in the vibrancy of the North Island.
Depth of knowledge
On the North Island more than anywhere else, your fantastic guide will elevate your vacation to a completely new level.
From helping you navigate the bustling surrounds of Auckland to enriching your experience with stories of the history and culture that shaped the North Island, your guide will be an indispensable resource throughout your travels. Our guides have lived all their lives in New Zealand, and they draw upon a vast pool of knowledge as they share the country’s secrets with you.
And in a place where most of the treasures lie off the beaten track – from boutique wineries to hidden waterfalls – you will truly discover a side of New Zealand that most others will never uncover.
Your guide can also help incorporate day trips to fantastic destinations that are just a short ways from your main destinations. With a knowledgeable, friendly guide at your side, the North Island is your oyster!
Something for everyone
Not only will your guide tailor your vacation to suit everyone, young and old, but there are an endless variety of activities to choose from.
If you enjoy the finer things in life, there are exquisite wineries to visit, rejuvenating sulphur spas to soak in, idyllic beaches to relax on, and fantastic dining experiences waiting for you.
Wildlife enthusiasts will be impressed with the gannets, whales, dolphins, and seals that are found off the coast, and photographers will never run out of scenes worthy of a photo.
Adventurous travellers will have a blast as well! Kayaking, jet-boating, hiking, rafting, swimming with dolphins, extreme caving, bungy jumping, and skydiving are just a few of the activities on offer.
Whatever your passion, we will work with you to ensure your itinerary surpasses your expectations in every way. And your private escort will go one step beyond and personalise your tour every step of the way. One of our inclusive tours is sure to be your one-of-a-kind adventure.
A rich cultural heritage
New Zealand has been shaped by its fascinating (and sometimes tumultuous) history, and nowhere is that more evident than in the North Island.
As you journey through the country, you will experience the history and living culture of New Zealand in many forms. Visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in the Bay of Islands, and learn about the momentous treaty which marked the beginning of New Zealand as a nation. Enjoy a refreshment overlooking the waterfront at New Zealand’s first European settlement. Experience an immersive Maori cultural evening, accompanied by traditional song and dance. Sample the traditional Hangi dinner, slow cooked underground by hot stones. And marvel at the intricately designed traditional architecture as you visit a historic marae.
