North Island Highlights
A full exploration of the North Island's volcanic, river-swept landscape doesn't always occur to visitors, but a circumnavigation of this ragged island's secluded beaches and secret forests won't disappoint.
Depart Auckland for a snorkel off Goat Island Beach. Continue on to the iconic Bay of Islands to peruse the historic confines of Russell and to see where a landmark treaty was signed at Waitangi. After sprawling on the gorgeous sands of Matai Bay, swing north to the desolate dunes of Ninety Mile Beach.
