You will need at least 15 days to travel around the North island, the best way to do it is renting a car to optimize your time and organize your own schedule. Beside this list of places, we strongly recommend going also to the Tongariro National Park (if you can, make the Alpin Crossing), Bay of Islands (beautiful beaches), Waiheke Island (so many nice wineries to go), Egmont National Park and the one lavender farm. 

SMART BUDGET TIP: Ask in the rental companies if they need to relocate one car or van from one city to another, if this is the case, you offer to help, they will give you the car and the fuel for free, and you can save some money.
