New Zealand North Island:
Escape into the natural world: Rediscover your passion for life in this land of snow-capped peaks, golden beaches, jewel-like lakes and lush green forests. Breath-taking scenery: Experience true wilderness - from rugged hinterlands shrouded in stately native podocarps, giant ferns and trailing vines to 18,000 kilometres of beautiful coastline. This is nature as it was intended: pure, untouched, energising. Fly to the edges of steaming volcanoes, feel the primal legacy of giant kauri trees, walk on top of crystalline glaciers and venture into mystical and uninhabited fiords. Just a step away: From sunrise over the Pacific Ocean to brilliant night skies glittering with southern-hemisphere stars - you`ll find a wilderness experience every day. Leave the crowds behind and discover a sense of freedom in one of the least populated countries in the world. More than a quarter of the country is protected in National Parks and reserves.
The Waikato region, centered on the Waikato River, contains some of the world`s most productive farmlands. Beneath the rolling green fields in the south are the Waitomo Caves, whose cathedral-like caverns have long attracted sightseers but now also cater for thrill seekers exploring the underground streams and shafts. Glide through the darkness on a water-borne barge and admire the beauty and grandeur of the caves and glow-worms overhead. The more adventurous may try tube rafting on an underground stream or rappelling 400 feet into the Lost World and the Haggas Honking Holes. Above ground, there are interesting walks in the unusual limestone country. Out on the coast, Raglan is an internationally renowned surf beach and the region`s seaside resort. White Island is the peak of a submerged volcano in the Bay of Plenty, off the east coast of the North Island. Visitors to White Island can witness constant low-intensity volcanic activity.
Auckland is New Zealand`s most populated and cosmopolitan city. Situated on the coast, the area offers everything from surfing and yacht charters, to museums and galleries. For a further taste of culture, Wellington, the country`s capital, is also home to many national programs such as ballet and opera. The region surrounding Martinborough produces superb wines including a renowned Pinot Noir. Many consider Rotorua to be the adventure capital of the Island with rafting, caving, rock climbing, bungy jumping and more. Along with many adventure attractions, the North Island, rich in history, is also known for many Maori cultural attractions such as the Maori Treasure Complex in Wellington and Tamaki Maori Village in Rotorua with traditional Hangi meals and cultural performances.
