Tour Itinerary

Surf world-famous waves, experience a historic Maori village with a local guide, get the adrenaline pumping in Rotorua, dance the night away in Wellington.

New Zealand's North Island thoroughly engages the body and the spirit, often at the same time. This ten-day trip promises loads of both. Up here, you'll pick up some sustainable aquaculture tips on a conservation farm and take surf lessons in one of the world's most famous surf areas. Elsewhere, you'll sea kayak in a secluded harbour, learn about the Maori culture from the source, and overnight on a houseboat. Get ready to immerse yourself in authentic New Zealand!

Day 1: Auckland
Arrive at any time.
Activity: Your opportunity to meet your CEO and fellow travellers, and learn more about your tour. Opt to join the group for a local meal afterwards. Don't forget to see the notice in the lobby (or ask reception) for the official time and place to meet up with the group.
Accommodation: Jucy Snooze Auckland (or similar)

Day 2: Auckland/Raglan
Visit an eel farm which focuses on developing sustainable aquaculture to learn about their methods before sea kayaking to a harbour for a picnic lunch.
Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
Activity: Visit a local sustainable eel farm which focuses on developing sustainable aquaculture and biological solutions for dairy farms in an effort to restore lowland wetland eco-systems. Be inspired by their green initiatives - they practice the art of giving more back to the environment than they take out.
Activity: Tour Raglan's secluded bays and unique coastline by kayak. Paddle the inner harbour to get up close to wildlife, fish, and (fingers crossed) orcas. Discover the pancake rocks on the harbour's northern side.
Accommodation: Lava Lounge (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast (Breakfast box) Lunch (Hamburger and salad (veg option available))

Day 3: Raglan
Enjoy an included surf lesson in one of the world's most famous surf areas, then opt to go hiking or rent a stand up paddle board.
Activity: Learn how to catch a wave in this three-hour surf lesson. Start with instruction on dry land before heading into the surf. Take advantage of the large soft boards used in class (they help everyone stand up).
Free Time: Enjoy free time any way you want in this surfing town. Head to the beach to hang ten or relax with a cold drink and plan your next activities.
Accommodation: Lava Lounge (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast (Breakfast box) Dinner (BBQ meat with salads)

Day 4: Raglan/Rotorua
Opt to go caving in world famous Waitomo before heading to Rotorua, notable for its geothermal activity and culture. Visit a local village to gain insight into Maori culture.
Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
Activity: Immerse yourself in a Maori cultural experience on the grounds of a historic Maori village. Participate in a pōwhiri (welcoming ceremony), and learn about the history of the marae (village) and the Rotorua-area from a local Maori guide. Discover the abundant geothermal energy surrounding the village that's used for cooking, heating, and communal bath houses.
Accommodation: Rock Solid Backpackers Rotorua (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast (Breakfast box)

Day 5: Rotorua/Taupo
Take advantage of free time in the adrenaline capital of the North Island, and opt to go whitewater rafting, check out a geothermal park with technicolour pools, or hit up a nearby spa. Continue on to spend the night near the shores of Lake Taupo.
Free Time: With lots to see and do in Rotorua, get out and explore!
Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
Accommodation: Base Taupo (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast

Day 6: Taupo/Wellington

Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
Free Time: Spend some time exploring the city.
Activity: Whether it's a pub crawl, drink specials or a bonfire on the beach, celebrate late into the night with your new best friends.
Accommodation: Nomads Capital (or similar)

Questions & Answers

Question: Any escortd tours suitable for seniors?

All escorted tours are suitable for seniors in good health. In fact, touring is the preferred way to see the world for seniors due to the convenience of not having to plan, being accompanied by a tour director the entire time, and getting expert knowledge from local guides.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

G adventures offers hands down some of the best tour packages out there!

By John M on Mar 11, 2018

The Japan vacation was better than I expected!!!! It was an active "moving" trip, which I truly enjoyed. I've done "coach tours" where you sit on the bus and they take you -- this experience was "hands on" riding the buses, trains and running through the streets -- it was amazing !!!!! We got the full feel of Japan and the people. This trip is not for the weak or slow pace crowd - you drag your luggage through the streets, up and down stairs --- it was truly exciting and exhilarating. G adventures has a fan for life. The instructions and assistance was outstanding -- Great job - Steve (AffordableTours.com) was outstanding !

By John C on Dec 12, 2017
