Head in the (Land of the Long White) Cloud

Known to locals as the "winterless north" (and "The Land of the Long White Cloud," but don't ask us to explain that one) Northland boasts year-round summer, white-silica and gold-sand beaches, and strings of islands dotting the shoreline, as well as vineyards and citrus orchards. Northland vacation rentals could have you sunbathing on deserted beaches in the morning, and see some of the last standing kauri tress in the Waipoua and Trounson forests in the afternoon. Surrounded by stunning natural beauty on all sides and plenty of adventures waiting to be had, you'll find something to float your boat—or surfboard, paddle board, or whatever—in Northland.

Things to do

Get ready to up your Instagram game with this instant hit

Northland vacation rentals are the perfect jumping-off point to the great outdoors. From the felled magnificence of the kauri forests to the meeting of the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea at Cape Reinga, Northland doesn't exactly hide its light under a bushel. Check "swim with dolphins" off your bucket list at Bay of Islands, where you can dive into instantly instagrammable turquoise waters surrounded by your closest flippered friends. A subterranean tour of the Kawiti Caves reveal limestone caverns entirely lit by the eerie, magical glow of the glowworm. Meanwhile, the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Matakohe's Kauri Museum shed light on the history of the region and the kauri forests.

Activities

Trade boardrooms for boardsports in Northland

Adrenaline junkies come from far and wide to experience the heart-pumping adventures New Zealand holds, and Northland's no exception. Whether you want to try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, take it easy on a sail boat, dive deep into undersea life, or rise up, up, and away on a parasailing trip, Northland vacation rentals will make the perfect base from which to try any and all of these exploits. Prefer to stick to dry land? Northland's got your back—exploring kauri forests or sand boarding on Ninety Mile Beach are also popular local activities.

Weather

Whatever you do, just don't say "winter is coming"

With a nickname like the "winterless north," it's no surprise that Northland vacation rentals present a pretty proposition all year round. It's New Zealand's warmest region, and the only one with a subtropical climate. Boasting around 2,000 average hours of sunshine each year, the hottest months are in January and February when temperatures rise to the mid-70s, while winters (June through August) are mild, with highs of around 60 degrees. Visit in the summer and you'll be forgiven for thinking the rest of the country has joined you on your vacation, but come in the spring or fall, and you won't have as much competition for that paddle board.

Natural features

Old-growth forests, white-sand beaches, and turquoise waters

Northland can be found—you guessed it—at the northern tip of New Zealand, roughly a 3-hour drive from Auckland. New Zealand's northernmost car-accessible reaches can be explored at Cape Reinga, where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean come together. This meeting of the 2 seas could account for the distinctive geographic personalities of the area's eastern and western halves: the tranquil east coast is scattered with nearby islands and scenic coves with picture-perfect turquoise waters and safe beaches, while the wilder western coast features rougher surf and more rugged shoreline.
