Your Example Itinerary
Welcome to Auckland – Bay of Islands
Bay of Islands ‘Free Time’
The day is at leisure for you to experience the beauty of the Bay of Islands. Perhaps take a coach trip to Cape Reinga, the northern-most point of New Zealand, via idyllic Ninety Mile Beach or a day of sailing or even a guided sea-kayaking trip. Tonight, you can choose to dine at one of the local cafés or restaurants on the waterfront.
Bay of Islands – Auckland
Visit the historic Waitangi Treaty Reserve, where New Zealand’s founding document the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. You’ll have time on your own to learn about New Zealand’s early Maori and European history and take in highlights such as the Maori War Canoe (Waka) and Meeting House (Marae). Later, you can spend time in a local café or perhaps take a ferry to Russell, the first capital of New Zealand. This afternoon enjoy the lush green farmland scenery as you return to Auckland.
Auckland – Waitomo – Rotorua
Travel through the lush farmland of the Waikato and King Country regions. Enjoy a morning snack as you drive past Rangiriri, the location of an historic Maori Land Wars site. On arrival in the small town of Waitomo, tour with a local guide through the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves with their amazing stalactites, stalagmites and other limestone formations. Finish with a silent boat ride through the Glow Worm Grotto – a subterranean cavern lit by thousands of tiny glow worms. Later, travel on to Rotorua, the cultural centre of New Zealand.
Enjoy a sightseeing tour around three of Rotorua’s iconic visitor attractions. Experience Te Puia, a place of Maori culture and a thermal wonderland of impressive geysers and boiling mud pools. Explore Rainbow Springs Nature Park, which showcases native flora and fauna. You may even spot a kiwi! Then enjoy a demonstration of New Zealand’s agricultural industry with a sheep shearing display and sheep dog trials at the Agrodome Sheep Show. Tonight enjoy a unique Maori Hangi dinner and concert on a local Marae.
