North Island

Wellington city and harbour at night

New Zealand’s North Island really does have something for everyone. From volcanic thrills to outdoor adventures, exciting wineries and fresh local flavours, it’s a cosmopolitan and diverse destination waiting to be explored.

You can’t explore the North Island without appreciating the incredible Maori culture. With indigenous locals making up a higher percentage of the population, you’ll be made to feel right at home with their welcoming hospitality. Join in a hangi (Māori feast), catch a cultural performance, watch the world-famous haka (war dance) and head to the Eastern Cape for the most authentic local experiences.
