Explore Fiji and New Zealand's North Island—flights and rental car included—courtesy of PacificIslands.com.

The Destination
New Zealand's North Island might be smaller than its southern counterpart, but it still ranks as one of the world's largest volcanic islands—packed with gorgeous beaches, hot springs, and a bevy of other natural wonders. From bubbling mud pools in Rotorua to hiking trails in Auckland, the North Island is a dream for outdoor enthusiasts: Few places in the world can boast volcanoes, forests, mountains, and beaches, all on the same island. When it comes to tastes, the North Island is known for seafood, wine, and seasonal fare—thanks to both its remote geography and temperate climate. Artisan cheese, honey, and chocolate are easy to find among so many local, rural food growers, while endless vineyards populate New Zealand's world-renowned wineries.

Emerging from the azure waters of the South Pacific between Hawaii and New Zealand, Fiji is the setting of desert-island fantasies. More than 300 islands make up this archipelago nation, where secluded beaches, unassuming villages, and posh resorts inspire the glossy pages of travel magazines. And because the tropical marine climate brings warm, breezy weather year-round, the right time to visit is anytime.
