Explore Northland with Auckland Car Rental
Wednesday, February 27th, 2013Read about 'Explore Northland with Auckland Car Rental' on USAVE, the place for all things car rental.
Auckland car rental gives you the freedom to explore the northernmost region of New Zealand at your own pace. Northland is the warmest region in the country, with sub-tropical temperatures in summer and extremely mild winters, making it a popular destination for visitors year round.
The Bay of Islands lies on the eastern coast of this northern stretch of land, and offers a stunning marine playground full of private golden beaches and water activities. It is also fast emerging as a food and wine hotspot, with lots of delicious produce being sold in Keri Keri. For those looking for something a little different, it’s also home to New Zealand’s “best toilet”!
If you’re more into wildlife and nature, the Whangarei district offers a number of unique ecosystems with fascinating plant, fish and bird life. Whether it’s through the forests or along the beach, there are many stunning walks that reward you with breathtaking views.
Continue northwards with your Auckland car rental and you reach the Kapiti Coast and Cape Reinga – the most northern point in New Zealand. Sand safaris take you out to the sand dunes and Ninety Mile Beach, while many of the small towns in the region are home to local artisans and foodies, so you can enjoy a spot of culture and great dining.
Northland provides a wealth of activities, and a rental car gives you the flexibility to enjoy the ones at the top of your list.
