Plan Your North Island's West Coast Vacation

On a clear day, sometimes with a cover of snow, Mt. Taranaki (also known as Mt. Egmont) towers above green flanks of forest and farmland. The solitary volcano peak, symmetrical in shape like Japan's Mt. Fuji, sits at the heart of the Taranaki region, and the province has shaped itself around the mountain. Northeast of Taranaki, the provincial city of New Plymouth hugs the coast, and smaller rural towns dot the roads that circle the mountain's base.
