The more populous of New Zealand’s two islands, the North Island is home to the country’s bohemian capital, Wellington, and its close rival, Auckland. Auckland has a love of yachting, a variety of well-heeled bars and the Sky Tower – which offers bungee jumping opportunities should you want them! Outside of the cities, explore the remote Coromandel peninsula and Northland, enjoy the vineyards of Hawkes Bay and try your hand at skydiving at Lake Taupo. Parts of the North Island are very volcanic, sulphuric Rotorua offers a strong Maori culture and the Tongariro crossing is a famous day walk across an active volcanic park.
