9 Day New Zealand North Island Adventure Tour From $1,899 (Online sale)

During this 9 Day New Zealand North Island Adventure group tour, you will get to experience the best of New Zealand’s North Island. You will be traversing the island for nine days, starting off by exploring Auckland and Waiheke Island. You will see the renowned Hobbiton filming location on your route to Rotorua and descend into the enchanted Waitomo glowworm tunnels. During your stay in Rotorua, you will change into your bathing suits to take a plunge in the geysers, boiling mud, and waters of Te Puia and Kerosene Creek.

The Mitai Māori Village will be one of your next stops along your journey to give you a good introduction to the fascinating Māori culture. In no time, you will find yourself sailing across the lake in Taupo. Enjoy the spectacular, unfiltered volcanic scenery as you watch the sun set and an incredible sky filled with stars. Your last day in Taupo is focused on adrenaline – visit the stunning Huka Falls and, if you dare, go bungee jumping or skydiving. Finally, it’s time to return to Auckland and get ready for your next adventure.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: ARRIVE & MEET THE GROUP – AUCKLAND

Kia ora! Touching down in New Zealand’s largest city, We’ll meet you at our centrally located hostel to settle in. This evening you’ll meet up with the rest of your travel crew and get excited for all the adventures to come in Aotearoa.

Day 2: CITY ORIENTATION – AUCKLAND

First on the agenda today is getting oriented with the beautiful harbor city of Auckland. We’ll then catch a ferry and travel to the beautiful Waiheke island. Don’t forget to listen out for the local Kiwi accent to see if it lives up to its title as the ‘World’s Sexiest.’

Day 3: GLOWWORM CAVES & HOBBITON - WAITOMO

Wave goodbye to the city as we set off to explore the North Island. First up we’re stopping at Waitomo, home of the world-famous glowworm caves. We’ll take a guided tour and explore this labyrinth of underground rivers and watch the resident glowworms do their thing. This afternoon we tick off another highlight as we head to Hobbiton to wander the real-life lush pastures of the Shire as featured in The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. After exploring the set and learning all about movie magic, we’ll enjoy a drink at the Green Dragon Inn before departing for Rotorua.

Day 4: EXPLORE ROTORUA – ROTORUA

Waking up to the whiff of sulfur, today you’ll definitely know you’re in Rotorua! We’ll head to the naturally heated waters of Kerosene Creek where you’ll get to take a dip, as well as one of New Zealand’s most magnificent geothermal wonderlands – Te Puia, featuring dramatic geysers & bubbling mud.

Day 5: MAORI CULTURE - ROTORUA

The morning you’ll have some free time to maybe try some zorbing or the skyline luge. This evening we will go to the Mitai Maori village for an authentic introduction to Maori culture! It doesn’t get more authentic than this!

Day 6: TAUPO & SUNSET SAIL – TAUPO

Have your cameras ready as we travel to Taupo, a lakefront town in the heart of the North Island. This afternoon we’ll treat you to something special – a sunset sailing trip across the lake. Swoon over spectacular, no-filter-needed scenery as the sky changes color and the stars set in above the volcanic landscape. NZ, you’ve stolen our hearts.

Day 7: WATERFALLS & ADRENALINE – TAUPO

This morning we’re off on a scenic walk to check out Huka Falls, a goose-bump inducing torrent of crystal water thundering down the Waikato River that you will hear before you see. After witnessing the raw power of Mother Nature, you’ll then have some free time when you can do a skydive or a bungee jump!

Day 8: ONWARD TRAVEL PLANNING – AUCKLAND

After traveling back to Auckland we’ll help sort out your onward travel for your time in New Zealand. If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers! Want to check out the Bay of Islands or hike the Tongariro Crossing? Let us sort you out. Tonight we’ll get the gang together one more time, dressing sharp for our farewell dinner and night out in the city. Sweet as, bro.
