Climb the Bridge, take a chartered cruise around the harbor or jump off the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere. Your stay includes a Taste of Auckland tour so you can take in the sights and flavors of the city.

Travel south to Rotorua, stopping at the Hobbton Movie enroute where you will walk in the footsteps of Hobbits and learn more about the movie and the characters. Arrive in Rotorua mid-afternoon, a town where you will have a myriad of activities to entice and entertain.  Whether seeking to experience Maori culture, geothermal earth forces, spa rejuvenation, thrills and adventure, or any of the other natural assets such as 16 lakes, some of the world’s best mountain biking trails, fantastic trout fishing and myriad forest walking tracks – Rotorua delivers it all! Included in your stay in a geothermal and a cultural experience.

Continue south by air to Wellington, the capital of New Zealand!  Visit the dynamic National Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa which is located on the waterfront!

Fly from Wellington to Queenstown is in the center of an area of extraordinary natural beauty and is an essential part of every NZ itinerary.
