Trip Summary
2 nights in Auckland

Auckland serves as a gateway to all of New Zealand and has something to offer for everyone. One of the world's most livable and beautiful cities, Auckland boasts a sunny, warm and temperate climate, great beaches, a beautiful harbor, fantastic shopping, a vibrant nightlife and a diverse population that creates a colorful blend of European, Polynesian, and Maori cultures.

Set on a field of ancient volcanos, Auckland is a stunning city where you are always just a half hour from exquisite beaches, hiking trails, breathtaking islands and a full range of outdoor activities.


2 nights in Rotorua

Known as a spa town and major tourist resort since the 1800's, Rotorua is a geothermal wonderland. There are a number of geysers, notably the Pohutu geyser at Whakarewarewa, and hot mud pools located in the city, which owe their presence to the Rotorua caldera. Don't miss the opportunity to visit a traditional Maori Marae. Rotorua is also home to botanical gardens and some interesting historic buildings. Government Gardens, close to the lakeshore are also well worth visiting. Another of Rotorua's attractions is the mountain biking. Whakarewarewa (also known as the 'Redwoods') Forest has been described as 'the Disneyland of mountain biking' and has some of the best mountain bike trails in New Zealand.


1 nights in Napier

Napier is a popular tourist city, famous worldwide for its unique concentration of 1930s Art Deco architecture. Thousands of tourists visit Napier every February for the Art Deco Weekend event, a celebration of its Art Deco heritage and history. The city also has one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the country, a statue on Marine Parade called Pania of the Reef. Other tourist attractions in Napier include The Hawke's Bay Museum and Art Gallery which features information on both the 1931 earthquake and Napier's redesign as an Art Deco city, the National Aquarium and the Soundshell. Other notable tourist events attracting many visiters include the region's annual Wine & Food Festival (named Harvest Hawke's Bay), and Mission Concert at the Mission Estate Winery in the near by town of Taradale.


2 nights in Wellington

Surrounded by a natural amphitheatre of wooded hills, Wellington is the capital of New Zealand, the country's second largest urban area. Wellington features a variety of architectural styles ranging from 19th century wooden cottages, such as Katherine Mansfield Birthplace in Thorndon, some streamlined Art Deco structures such as the old Wellington Free Ambulance headquarters, to the curves and vibrant colours of post-modern architecture in the CBD. Both the National Library of New Zealand, located on Molesworth Street, and the Te Puni Kôkiri building on Lambton Quay are aesthetically unique. Wellington is home to Te Papa Tongarewa (the Museum of New Zealand), the Colonial Cottage, Old Saint Paul's, and the Law School (largest wooden building in the southern hemisphere) and the Wellington City Art Gallery.


1 nights in Picton

Nestled at the head of the Marlborough Sounds, some of the most beautiful waterways in the world, and located in one of the sunniest parts of New Zealand, Picton is a great holiday destination. It's the perfect base to explore the Marlborough Sounds and surrounding areas home to one of the largest collections of New Zealand marine life: seahorses, preserved giant squid, sharks, rays, octopus, crayfish, cod, snapper, rocky shore display, life-size Orca and Hectors dolphin models. A wide range of outdoor activities like fishing, walking, tramping, kayaking and cycling is popular with overseas tourists and locals. While in the township, don't forget to enjoy the gardens on the foreshore, or learn about Queen Charlotte Sound's whaling past at Picton Museum.

Located on the shore of Tasman Bay, Nelson is a popular tourist destination, an irresistible blend of lifestyle and stunning landscape. It has a vibrant local music and arts scene hosting popular events such as the Nelson Arts Festival and the annual Wearable Art Awards.

There are also turtles, tropical fish and a walk through aviary.


1 nights in Kaikoura

Situated midway between Christchurch and Picton, on the rugged east coast of New Zealand's South Island, Kaikoura boasts a unique combination of ocean and mountains offering to its visitors breathtaking coastal alpine scenery. Whether you are looking for relaxation, eco-tourism oriented activities like whale watching, dolphin swimming walks; or you simply look for art, history and culture, or fine wines and cuisine, Kaikoura offers it all. Experience some of the best reef diving in the country, or kayaking around the ruggedly beautiful Peninsula.
