Explore New Zealand’s Lush Northern Region

During this 9-day vacation from Pacific Holidays, you’ll set your own pace on a self-driving tour of New Zealand’s northern region with accommodations in Auckland, Bay of Islands, and Rotorua.

This vacation includes:


Often called the “City of Sails,” Auckland—which sits along the Waitemata Harbor—has more boats per capita than anywhere else in the world. Jet-boat tours depart regularly from the harbor, giving passengers a wide-angle view of the city skyline and the famous Auckland Harbor Bridge.

  • Travel 124 mph through the air on the Sky Screamer, an air-bungy ride that does somersaults in 2 seconds flat
  • Take a shopping trip: The historic neighborhood of Parnell, located less than 2 miles (3 km) from the city center, is lined with Victorian homes that have been converted into fashionable boutiques
  • Dine at Depot Eatery & Oyster Bar, which serves fresh local seafood such as Cloudy Bay clams and fresh-shucked oysters, and wine on-tap.
  • Accommodations: Auckland City Hotel

Paihia, Bay of Islands

This coastal town overflows with stunning scenery and a diversity of wildlife. This—in addition to its location on scenic turquoise waters—makes Paihia a popular destination for outdoor adventures or simply lounging on the beach.

  • See whales, dolphins, and leatherjacket fish up-close while scuba-diving near the Rainbow Warrior dive site
  • Waipoua Forest, the largest tract of native forest on Northland, is an ancient landscape home to Tane Mahuta, a 2,000-year old kauri tree that continues to grow.
  • Pick up kauri bowls, jade carvings, and handblown glass at The Cabbage Tree downtown, a 5-minute walk from the hotel
  • Accommodations: Tanoa Paihia Hotel


Rotorua is a hotbed of geothermal activity, with bubbling mud pools, ancient volcanic crater lakes, and explosive geysers. This area is also rife with luxury day spas that specialize in Polynesian body treatments.

  • Tour underground rivers at the Waitomo Glowworm Caves on your drive in, where guided boat tours will take you to underground caves that are illuminated by thousands of tiny glowworms
  • Cultural dances, storytelling, and a hangi feast are just a few things you’ll experience during an evening visit to the Tamaki Maori Village
  • The Rotorua Museum is located in a decadent Bath House, and features eight new galleries dedicated to the local Te Rawa people. There’s also a spa where you can take an “electric bath” in charged waters.
  • Accommodations: Distinction Rotorua Hotel & Conference Centre
