TOUR TYPE - INDEPENDENT TOUR
Independent Tours are not escorted group tours - they are for independent travellers.

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 - WELLINGTON / NAPIER
Travel north up the Kapiti Coast to Palmerston North and then through the spectacular Manawatu Gorge to Hawkes Bay and onto the Art Deco city of Napier.

DAY 2 - NAPIER / ROTORUA
Depart Napier travelling across the volcanic plateau to Taupo. Lake Taupo is world renowned for its fighting rainbow trout and is New Zealand’s largest lake situated in the very centre of the North Island. From Taupo, you journey onto Rotorua arriving late morning. The afternoon is free at leisure in Rotorua. There are dozens of activities available – please ask for suggestions.
DAY 3 - ROTORUA / WAITOMO / AUCKLAND
Depart Rotorua, travelling north to the Waitomo Caves. Visit the Glow Worm Grotto for a spectacular display of tiny lights emitted by these unique life forms deep in the cave grotto. Continue on to Auckland, the ‘City of Sails’ where your tour concludes.
