Why Choose Glamping on North Island?

New Zealand's land has been carved out over millions of years by glaciers and volcanoes, which has created a dramatic landscape perfect for glamping adventures. The North Island is no exception to that statement. Here you will find active volcanoes, Pacific island sanctuaries, famous movie sets, and rich Maori history. 

There are the Northland and the Bay of Islands with remarkable coastlines and stunning vistas. In Auckland, North Island you will find a cultural melting pot of food, wine, music, and art, with easy day trips to black sand beaches and volcanic cones. 

The Coromandel peninsula is one of the best places to go in New Zealand and is known for its pristine beaches with plenty of activities and attractions like fishing, hiking, diving, and more! Get out of the cities and off the beaten path and your exploring will bring you to the country’s heartland with lush forests, dramatic mountains, and steep gorges.

Tongariro National Park was where the ‘Lord of the Rings trilogy’ was filmed and is home to one of the world’s best day hikes, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Below ground, these rocky outcroppings look like they belong to another planet. Comprised of a labyrinth of limestone caves, the walls are lined with glow worms and can be explored on a guided walk or boat tour. The North Island is also a great place for a road trip with the whole family! 

The Northland’s Twin Coast Highway traces kilometres of beaches and hidden harbours, finally reaching the secluded Cape Reinga, also known as Te Rerenga Wairua. Rotorua, in the central part of the North Island, has a volcanic landscape like nowhere else and is worth a visit if only for the Te Puai bubbling mud pools and the colourful ponds of the Pohutu Geyser. But, while you’re there, take advantage of the amazing spa and wellness services the city has also become known for.
