TOUR TYPE - INDEPENDENT TOUR
Independent Tours are not escorted group tours - they are for independent travellers. What this means is that it is not the same group of people travelling on their own coach with a tour leader/escort looking after you. You are travelling independently. However, you are picked up and dropped off at your accommodation each morning and evening and interesting commentary is provided on many sectors.
Day By Day Itinerary
DAY 1 - AUCKLAND / WAITOMO CAVES / ROTORUA
Travel south from Auckland through the rich farmland of the Waikato to the region of Waitomo. Enjoy a guided tour through the long galleries and lofty chambers of the World Famous Glow worm Caves. Your tour continues with a boat ride through the Glow Worm Grotto, illuminated by thousands of tiny lights from the glow worms suspended from the cave ceiling. We continue east to Rotorua, a thermal wonderland of roaring geysers and boiling mud pools.
DAY 2 - ROTORUA / TAUPO / NAPIER
Depart Rotorua and travel to Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest freshwater lake famous for its Rainbow Trout. From Taupo we travel to the region of Hawkes Bay, renowned for its red wines and the Art Deco city of Napier. This afternoon is at leisure – perhaps a walk along Marine Parade taking in the lovely promenade and later relax with a glass of delicious Hawkes Bay wine.
DAY 3 - NAPIER / WELLINGTON
Morning at leisure in Napier. A great chance to look around this lovely city or enjoy a scenic wine tour. Please ask – we are happy to add in additional activities. This afternoon we travel south through the Manawatu Gorge to Palmerston North then down the Kapiti Coast to Wellington.
