New Zealand North Island Adventure

As Maori legend goes, New Zealand’s North Island was heaved out of the ocean by the demigod Maori on a fishing trip, then his brothers carved out pieces of their giant catch, creating the peaks, rivers and valleys that make up the island today. Discover this rugged landscape with a rich cultural history on an in-depth 14-day adventure. Soak up sun in the Bay of Islands’, walk through Coromandel Forest Park, sink into hot pools in Rotorua, marvel at the massive Lake Taupo, explore the varied landscapes of Tongariro National Park and sip local wine in Napier. Travel with a local leader and discover New Zealand’s beauty beyond the obvious.
