Cosmopolitan city vibe, cultural wonderland & more!

Discover the North Island and experience an array of wonderful sights and attractions. View everything from cosmopolitan cities, geothermal wonders, rolling hillsides, lush rain forest, and miles of coastline as far as the eye can see.

Grand Pacific Tours offer two exciting dedicated North Island itineraries, choose from the 8 Day Taste of the North Island or the fully escorted 9 Day Northern Spectacular. Both of which take in the stunning and diverse regions of Auckland, Wellington, Rotorua and much more!

Visit cosmopolitan Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand offering world-class shopping, buzzing waterfront precincts lined with restaurants, not to mention harbour adventures right on your doorstep. Located in the heart of the city is the iconic Sky Tower. Experience 360 degree spectacular views for up to 80 kilometres from the tallest man-made structure in New Zealand.

Wellington, the Centre Stage region and capital city of New Zealand offers a vibrant arts and culture scene along with diverse wine, food and shopping. Located at the bottom of New Zealand’s North Island and set on the edge of a stunning harbour surrounded by rolling green hills, Wellington paints a picture of postcard perfection & is a city waiting to be explored.

Combine this with a plethora of attractions and activities to enjoy in Rotorua – the hot spot of fascinating Māori culture, thermal springs and boiling mud pools. With its hot geysers and steaming volcanoes, the Rotorua region plays host to some of the most well-known Kiwi attractions. Try a delicious hangi feast cooked traditionally in the steaming ground while you’re there. Visit Skyline Rotorua and take a leisurely uphill Gondola ride to Cableway Restaurant where a buffet breakfast and spectacular views are on offer. You can then ride the thrilling Luge through dramatic scenery and the beautiful Redwood forest.

Other key highlights of these tours include the stunning Bay of Islands, where you will experience the famous Hole in the Rock Cruise. Visit the Kauri Museum and hear the story of the pioneering settlers of NZ through the lens of the Kauri Industry. This interactive museum specialises in the legacy of the Kauri Forests; specifically the strong durable timber and highly prized Kauri Gum.

These locations are waiting to be explored... Go North today!
