The climate of North Island (New Zealand)
New Zealandís North Island is the upper island. This island has several climate zones. From subtropical to subpolar. The landscape is very diverse. The Northland area has a sea climate with subtropical characteristics. Some beautiful beaches and a great variety of plant life can be found in this area. In the north eastern part the natural harbour of Whangarei can be found. This attracts many water sports enthusiasts. Several beautiful waterfalls can be admired as well. To find the cold you will have to go into the mountains. At the top of Mount Egmont and at the top of the mountains in Tongariro national park winter sports can be enjoyed during the cold season. The large amount of active volcanoes and geysers are characteristic of this island. When you travel further south the climate gradually changes into a moderate sea climate. Gale force winds are not uncommon in some places at Cook Strait.
