My Top 3 Multi-day hikes of the North Island

I have been fortunate enough to have resided in the North Island of New Zealand for the last 2 years. During that time I have tried to get out and explore as much as possible, with each visit discovering new places, new experiences and all the while taking new images for my personal photography portfolio.

Tongariro: Why you need to visit Middle Earth

Within the 4 years I've lived in New Zealand for, I've pretty much evened out my time between living in North and South Islands, getting a chance to appreciate the natural beauties both have to offer. They are so so different, with the south offering the alps and endless ridge lines of peaks with lakes at their footing. The North offering great coastal adventures as well as the hub of all things geothermal. The central North Island region offers unparalleled landscapes, it's no wonder it's been named a dual world heritage area. Yes, I'm talking about The National Park, New Zealand's first national park. It is now often referred to as Tongariro. With 3 stratovolcanoes in plain sight, you'll b
