Couran Cove Island Resort
From the far north where New Zealand’s political history began, journey through landscapes that blend magnificent beaches, sprawling farmlands and geothermal wonders and take in the rich Māori culture.
The bustling cities of Auckland and Wellington are the perfect base for a city break. Wellington is a compact city with a powerful mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine. Fuel your visit with strong coffee and world-class craft beer – Wellingtonians are masters of casual dining. The restaurant scene is not-to-be-missed with some of New Zealand’s best chefs in residence in Wellington. In Auckland, you’ll be spoilt for choice with beautiful beaches on your doorstep, nearby hiking trails and enchanting holiday islands.
Māori are the indigenous people of New Zealand. The best way to experience Māori culture is by visiting a marae, to learn about fascinating myths and legends from passionate Māori guides. In the regions of Northland, Auckland, Taupo and Rotorua, immerse yourself in Maori culture with an organised tour where you can learn about the history of the Maori people, learn traditional crafts, and enjoy a mouth-watering hāngī feast cooked in earth ovens.
Explore places that have been shaped and coloured by volcanic and geothermal forces for thousands of years. In Rotorua and Taupo, watch boiling mud pools and geysers while feeling the heat underfoot from landscapes that hiss with steam. This activity centres around the Rotorua areas and stretches south to the mountains of Tongariro National Park then east to Bay of Plenty’s White Island – an active and accessible volcano island.
With around 15,000 kilometres of coastline and more than 25 marine reserves, ocean scenery is entwined with New Zealand’s outdoorsy way of life. If you’re a beach-lover, there are road trips that will keep you in touch with the sea every step of the way. Northland has the Twin Coast Discovery Highway, a driving route that touches the North Island’s east and west coasts, revealing stunning vistas at every turn.
