Sip some of the world’s finest chardonnay in Hawke’s Bay and marvel at the incredible architecture in Napier, the Art Deco Capital. Climb the Tongariro Crossing in Ruapehu, or jetboat the Whanganui River, a river so sacred to the Maori that it holds the legal status of a person. Perhaps visit the luxurious Huka Lodge and try your hand at trout fishing in Lake Taupo. In Rotorua, feel the awesome geothermal power of this culturally rich land, home to Maori cultural experiences since 1886. Taste the award-winning vintage cheeses of the Waikato and explore the magic of Hobbiton’s beautiful rolling green hills.
