    Use "go to the north". You can use "on" or "for" with "my vacation" but only "on vacation" without "my".

    I'd say, "I want to go north for my vacation."

    PS: Try to leave a space after your punctuation. Your post is hard to read. There is a specific way to space punctuation in English; it's not freestyle. You can learn it from any book written in English, or any post by a competent writer here.
