Itinerary

Arrive to your hotel by 3pm today to jump straight into the action with an exclusive introduction to the All Blacks. Experience the mighty Haka and then opt to grab dinner with your group. Stay: President Hotel Auckland

Enjoy a morning cycle through the beautiful Karangahake Gorge, then travel on to the lakes region of Rotorua. En route to Rotorua visit Okere falls. Stay: Aura Accommodation

This region of New Zealand is renowned for its geothermal qualities. Enjoy free time to experience the regions' geothermal wonders. Opt to mountain bike in the world famous Redwood Forest, go white water rafting, or indulge in the therapeutic hot springs. Stay: Aura Accommodation (B/L)

Mt Tongariro's rocky, dramatic landscapes make this day-long trek truly one of New Zealand's "Great Walks", passing emerald lakes and beautiful alpine scenery. Start early and collect supplies before heading out. The transfer will drop the group off at the beginning of the self-guided trek and collect everyone at the other end. After the trek, travel to a ski lodge on the side of a mountain for the night and opt for a hot soak to ease those tired muscles. Stay: The Alpine Chalets (B/D)

Travel to Blue Duck Station, a working farm and nature conservancy that serves as our gateway to Whanganui National Park. Marvel at the Whanganui River - the third longest in New Zealand - as it flows out to the west coast of the North Island from Mt Tongariro. Learn about the region's natural history, conservation efforts for indigenous wildlife (including the endangered New Zealand blue duck) and Blue Duck Station's sustainable farming practices. Stay: Blue Duck Lodge - River Quarters (B/L/D)

During short walks or stops en route, learn about the region's history and local conservation efforts. If weather permits, head out for a visit to the abandoned Bridge to Nowhere. Return to Blue Duck Station for the night. Enjoy a delicious dinner. Stay: Blue Duck Lodge - River Quarters (B/L/D)

Travel north to the small town of Waitomo, located near an extensive underground cave system. Enjoy a free afternoon, and opt to tour the caves by boat, by foot or with a bit of adrenaline by rappelling into them. Settle into your accommodation close by, and enjoy a final dinner together to say farewell to those finishing their tour in Auckland tomorrow. Stay: Raglan Sunset Motel (B)

Visit Bridal Veil Falls via an easy 30 minute walk before travelling north to Auckland where your tour will end around midday.

Family reunion   0 , NSW, Australia, Dec 2022
My family live in various places around NSW, so we had a wonderful reunion on our recent trip to the North Island of New Zealand. I loved bike riding through the countryside, visiting a volcano and a glow worm cave, going for a kayak, hiking and exploring. My family also really enjoyed meeting the other tour group members from around the world, and sharing adventures with them.
