Suggested Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive Auckland
Welcome to Auckland! Once you’ve collected your baggage, it’s time to sign for your rental car and check-in at your accommodation. You’ve landed on the doorstep of New Zealand’s largest city, an idyllic setting overlooking the forested Waitakere Ranges, the sheltered Manukau Harbour and the island-studded Hauraki Gulf to the north.

Day 2 Auckland to Bay of Islands
This morning head north out of Auckland to the Bay of Islands. Take some time to visit Kerikeri on the way for arts, crafts, antiques and see one of the oldest buildings in the country – the Stone Store.
Then you can make your way to Paihia, holiday resort of the North and gateway to the beautiful Bay of Islands.

Day 3 Hole in the Rock Helicopter flight
You can relax today and enjoy the Bay of Islands in several ways. We’ve included a 20 minute helicopter flight in the morning. This scenic flight departs from Paihia and flies over Russell, through the spectacular Bay of Islands and out to the famous 'Hole in the Rock' at Cape Brett. The helicopter departs from central Paihia next to the wharf. 

In the afternoon why not jump on a ferry and head to the quaint seaside village of Russell (New Zealand’s first capital) where you can take some time to wander around and enjoy.

Day 4 Bay of Islands to Auckland
It’s a good day for exploring today as there are many possibilities for stops on the way down south. At Waipu turn left to Waipu Cove and follow that road down through Langs Bach and Mangawhai.

Waipu Cove is the local surf beach in the area. Further on, at the old Bohemian settlement of Puhoi have a drink and sample some local cheese. A little further south is Waiwera where there are mineral hot pools to bathe and have fun in. Return to Auckland tonight.

Day 5 Depart Auckland 
After breakfast, please make your way to the airport where you will return your car in time for your onward flight.
