Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand. A small city by international standards, it’s none the less big enough to have top restaurants, trendy districts like Parnell and a gay scene around K-road. We’ll have a welcome dinner and begin our New Zealand adventure.
On the third day we’ll head to Waiheke Island. It’s just a 40-minute ferry ride. On the way we’ll pass the volcanic island of Hauraki Gulf. When we arrive at Waiheke Island we’ll explore its olive groves, beaches and wineries. We’ll have some excellent food here and then make our way back to Auckland for one more night in the city.
On our way to Rotorua we’ll stop at Raglan, a popular surfing town. When we’ve had lunch we’ll carry on our way. Rotorua is known for its hot mud pools, geothermal activity and geysers. We’ll be able to relax in the warmth of the hot springs, discover traditional Māori culture, see the glow-worm caves of Waitomo and visit Hobbiton.
Rotorua is home to the largest percentage of Māori people. This is your chance to discover the distinctive, indigenous culture of New Zealand. You could brave a ride in a Zorb, try black water rafting or visit the set of Lord of the Rings.
On day seven we’ll be setting out on a road trip. We’ll take the scenic route through the inland desert, passing Tongariro National Park on our way to Wellington, New Zealand’s capital. It’s a city by the sea with a good arts scene, lots of museums and even a gay scene.
A local guide will take us for a city tour. We’ll aslo take a cable car to Kelburn and visit the Te Papa museum.
We’ll take a flight from North Island to South Island. Located at the edge of Lake Wakitipu, Queenstown is known as the world’s adventure capital. There are so many activities to choose from. You can go bungee jumping, hike Ben Lomond and visit the vast Milford Sound fjord.
If you have time between your activities you can join your guide on a hike up Tiki Trail. At the top you’ll be greeted with great views of the mountain range.
Queenstown is our final stop in New Zealand. On the 12th day you’ll be transferred to the airport for your return flight.
