Trip Overview

Mix with Maoris, make your way through Middle Earth and hike through the picturesque Tongariro National Park on your way to Wellington.

Ready to visit New Zealand’s North Island? Let’s go!


Worth noting…

Trip Itinerary

  1. Auckland to Rotorua


    On our way to Rotorua we’ll swing by the Waitomo Caves. Take on the optionals and go exploring this otherworldly attraction. Why not try Black Water Rafting, explore the Ruakuri Cave or go see the glowworms. They’re all awesome, trust us. Maori legends and mythology have been passed down for thousands of years. You have one night in a meeting house to soak in as much as you can! After learning some Haka moves and checking out the ladies’ Poi dance, it’s time to tuck into a traditional Kiwi dinner.
