The North Island of New Zealand is known for its volcanic activity, national parks and cosmopolitan cities. Home to about three-quarters of New Zealand’s population, it has the country’s largest city, Auckland. Surrounded by bays and islands, it’s known as the “the City of Sails.”

Rotorua, Taupo and the Central Plateau make the geothermal heart of the North Island.

On the southern tip of the North Island is New Zealand’s capital Wellington, home to the national museum Te Papa and the Weta Film Studios.
