New Zealand’s two main islands are like fraternal twins with so much in common yet markedly distinct from one another.
North Island possesses natural geysers and thermal springs around Rotorua, the subterranean Glow Worm Caves of Waitomo, and the exquisite Bay of Islands, with its miles of deserted beach landscapes dotted with boulders. South Island, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts some of the most impossibly beautiful scenery… rugged mountains, glaciers, fjords and waterfalls. North Island produces fine wool products while South Island is gaining an international reputation for its vineyards. The cities are equally distinctive: from the Art Deco city of Napier, to the casually elegant Auckland, to the adventurous township of Queenstown.
