Itinerary

Kia ora! Touching down in New Zealand's largest city, we'll meet you at Auckland airport and take you to our centrally located hostel to settle in. This evening you'll meet up with the rest of your travel crew and excited for all the adventures to come!

First on the agenda today is getting oriented with the beautiful harbour city of Auckland with a city tour of all the best highlights and hidden gems. This evening we see what Auckland's all about after dark!

Wave goodbye to the city as we set off to explore the North Island. First up we're stopping at Waitomo, home of the world-famous glowworm caves. We'll jump on a boat to explore this labyrinth of underground rivers and watch the resident wormies do their thing. This afternoon we tick off another highlight as we head to Hobbiton to wander the real-life lush pastures of the Shire as featured in The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. After exploring the set and learning all about movie magic, we'll enjoy a drink at the Green Dragon Inn before departing for Rotorua.

Waking up to the whiff of sulphur, today you'll definitely know you're in Rotorua! We'll head to the naturally heated waters of Kerosene Creek to laze away the morning, then check out the active geothermal area known as Wai-O-Tapu. The afternoon is yours to roam, opt to try zorbing (think rolling downhill in a giant inflatable ball), race your mates on the skyline luge, or if you're a daredevil, maybe try something a little more adrenaline-pumping.

Today we're off to check out some more volcanic action at Kuirau Park, an area full of natural hot springs, bubbling mud pools and thermal 'foot spas' for you to indulge in. Tonight we journey back to a time of proud warriors and ancient traditions and prepare to feast and witness spine-tingling performances at a living Maori village. It doesn't get more authentic than this!

Have your cameras ready as we travel to Taupo, a lakefront town in the heart of the North Island. This evening we'll treat you to something special - a sunset sailing trip across the lake. Swoon over spectacular, no-filter-needed scenery as the sky changes colour and the stars set in above the volcanic landscape. NZ, you've stolen our hearts.

This morning we're off on a scenic walk to check out Huka Falls, a goose-bump inducing torrent of crystal water thundering down the Waikato River that you will hear before you see. After witnessing the raw power of Mother Nature, we'll slow things right back down, soaking away our aches and pains in mineral-rich thermal hot springs.

After travelling back to Auckland we'll help sort out your onward travel for your time in New Zealand. If you've got questions, we've got answers! Want to check out the Bay of Islands or hike the Tongariro Crossing? Let us sort you out. Tonight we'll get the gang together one more time, dressing sharp for our farewell dinner and night out in the city. Sweet as, bro.

This morning your Northern Kiwi adventure comes to an end, but this is just the beginning of your time in New Zealand! Prepped and ready for the next leg along with the new friends you've made, we'll be there for support every step of the way.
