10 days on North Iland

If I were to spend 10 days with my husband and 19 year old son what would be the recommended travel plan and accomodation ?

Welcome to the forums.

It really depends on what you're interested in. It could be Maori culture, great outdoors, wineries, hiking (tramping) and various other options.

Some of it may be dictated by how you're travelling - hire car or public transport.

A good starting point would be take a search through some of the itineraries here to get some ideas of what you want to see. Put together a first draft and post it here for comments and suggestions.

Hire a car and self explore, staying in 2 br motel accommodation to prepare some family meals, including breakfasts. Motel accommodation is found throughout NZ, with modest tarrifs usually and are located in convenient locations to nearby attractions.

Presumably you are starting from Auckland, what time of year is your proposed trip taking place?

was thinking next week but think I may have left it too late to organise . I guess it is peak holiday season everywhere and accomodation will be booked out. May do in a few of months time around Easter .

Do you just intend to stay in Northland, or visit more of the North Island? Do you plan to rent a car or use buses/flights etc? Are you flying into AKL?
