Overview

Set out from Auckland by car for the winterless rolling terrain of Northland. Spend your first couple of nights exploring the Bay of Islands, and self drive to New Zealand’s northern tip at Cape Reinga – or take day tour that includes 90 mile beach. Pass back through Auckland on the route south to the bubbling thermal areas of Rotorua, one of the North Island’s most active areas. Continue to the volcanoes of Tongariro, considering the Tongariro Crossing hike, before making your way back to Auckland.
