If we had to choose an adjective to describe the land of kiwis, hobbits, sheep, and Maori, we would have no doubt that North Island New Zealand is the Place that is known as the most beautiful place in New Zealand, that is objective to irrefutable beauty.
As some months ago we left this wonderful country, we wanted to return, even if only looking at the photos, reactivating our memories and living our adventures there. So we have prepared two articles explaining the top10 of each of the islands. Here is the first one. Choosing the best and most beautiful places in New Zealand North Island has not been an easy task but we have them.
It was a day of Mordor for the effort and fatigue, but the reward of finishing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing after 18km and having seen one of the most amazing places in the world … priceless! The Tongariro trek goes straight right to No. 1 of things to see and do on the north island New Zealand.
Cape Reinga is almost the northernmost point of New Zealand. On this end, sacred to the Maori, the waters of the Tasmanian Sea and those of the Pacific Ocean come together in an immortal embrace. It is impossible not to get excited in a place so full of spirituality and beauty.
Close your eyes and think of North Island New Zealand. You will See green hills, hundreds of sheep, amazing beaches, vintage villages, and fish & chips … Welcome to Coromandel! Here we spent 5 weeks doing housesitting in a beautiful house in Coromandel Town, we visited beaches with cave-cathedrals, hot-water beaches, we got lost on shit roads until we ran into a family of wild pigs, we saw the milky way from a Jacuzzi with views to the Ocean … come on, as if not to put it in the top 10.
Most travelers repudiate it but Auckland seemed like a great city to us. it will be that we had a great time going back to school, it would be that here began an adventure that we had dreamed for a long time, there will be sushi’s at $ 5 but it’s the city of candles that we love.
The rotten egg turtle, but very rotten, is easily forgotten thanks to the colorful waters, geological formations, lakes, and craters of this unique thermal park in the world.
A cheerful, colorful, modern and cosmopolitan city, the capital of New Zealand seemed like a perfect place to live a season. Our plans took us to the south island, but we wouldn’t have minded spending a few months in a nice little house in the Newtown neighborhood … never say never!
Here began our first road trip and here we begin to fall in love with life in the van. Cliffs, wild beaches, lots of waves and beautiful sunsets … tutu kaka is not pooped, cool!
We stumble almost by chance with this wonder. For us the most beautiful beach in New Zealand. White sand, transparent waters, yellow flowers, and wild beach. simply almost perfect if only I had some beautiful palmeritas and the water was a warmer tad.
After a few months in New Zealand, seeing volcanoes no longer impressed us, until we reached Mount Maunganui. This place is a real past! Its super green volcano rises above the sea from above the views are the ones that impress and deserve to be in this classification of the best of New Zealand.
Raglan made our dream of being surfers then the fear of not being able to remove the wetsuit made me come back to reality but we will always have the long waves, the cliffs and the love of the surfers towards their sea.
