Our FAVOURITE Mount Taranaki hike & other must do activities!

Is a Mount Taranaki Hike on your North Island itinerary? No? It most certainly should be. If you’ve heard of this near-perfect volcano before, the chances are you’ve seen the famous shot of Mt Taranaki’s reflection in a mirror lake. If you haven’t, it’s New Zealand’s ‘Mount Fuji’ doppleganger, and getting that reflection shot is probably the only reason a lot of tourists go there when in fact, there are [...]

Kayaking on Lake Taupō and WHERE TO FIND the Maori rock carvings!

2019-09-12T18:29:54+10:00

Imagine being surrounded by crystal clear water, paddling across a volcanic lake in a small kayak while you hunt for artwork and sculptures carved into the side of a cliff face. It sounds like something out of an Indiana Jones movie but it is in fact an experience we had with Taupō Kayaking Adventures while visiting Lake Taupō in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island, and it's one that [...]

2019-09-12T18:28:53+10:00

If you’re looking for a coastal escape with volcanic views, plenty of nature to get lost in but to also be close enough to a city so you don’t feel isolate, Mount Maunganui on the outskirts of Tauranga is somewhere you need to add to your New Zealand destinations list. We didn’t know what to expect with Tauranga, but once we stumbled upon the little coastal district of Mount Maunganui [...]

4 reasons to ROAD TRIP around the Coromandel Peninsula

2019-09-12T18:28:37+10:00

If there’s one thing we love more than road tripping, it’s road tripping through unexpected scenery - and that’s exactly what happened when we took a road trip around the Coromandel Peninsula. If I’m completely honest, after being not-so blown-away by Auckland we had a few reservations about what the North Island was going to have in store for us.
