Itinerary

We will be starting from Auckland, the capital of New Zealand and make our way down to Wellington or vice versa. We will be passing many tourist highlights of the North. Note: The following itenary is from Auckland to Wellington. The itenary Wellington - Auckland is in reverse. 

 

We start at 8 am at Haka Lodge Auckland and end around 5 pm in Wellington. Do you have a few spare days? Then we suggest extending your stay into the South Island by two days to take in Kaikoura and Christchurch. Are you planning to arrive in Auckland with a few spare days? Then we have a great 3-day trip taking in the Bay of Islands in the Northland region of New Zealand.

 

You can decide to join in on some special inclusions. Carve your very own 'tiki' pendant in Coromandel, enter the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, or enjoy an evening filled with entertainment at a traditional 'marae' with Haka performance and 'hangi' feast. You can build your own tour online and add many optional activities. None of these activities are compulsory, however.

 

Our trip starts early in the morning, so you can opt to stay at Haka Lodge Auckland the night before the tour. Then you only have to walk downstairs on day one. A stress-free morning. Likewise, you can book an extra night at the Wellington YHA so you are not in a rush once we end our trip.

 

Upgrading your accommodation to a private room costs $599. The cost is per room, so if you share the room with someone else, you can split the cost between the two of you.
