The South Island gets a lot more attention than the North Island, but your reward for going to the less popular North Island is peace, quiet, and significantly fewer crowds. Here you can truly escape to nature. You probably think of New Zealand as mostly snow-capped mountains, but why not head to the subtropical Northland and Coromandel Peninsula and go surfing on their wild, untamed beaches? Or take one fo the Great Walks past numerous mountains and forests? Head to Auckland, to enjoy some surprisingly excellent coffee (it vies with Australia as the true inventor of the delicious flat white), a multicultural city, and two stunning harbors. Just make sure you book one of these cabin rentals with a pool! There's something for every taste and every budget, so take a look today.
