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 Rotorua
Head south on State Highway 1 to the city of Rotorua. Perhaps you’d like to take the opportunity to visit Hobbiton. The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit movie series were filmed on picturesque private farmland near Matamata. There are spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges from the rolling green hills of the farm, which is a working sheep and beef unit. The Hobbiton movie set has been completely rebuilt and will remain as it was seen in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

Day 3 At Rotorua
Rotorua has been known for its geothermal activity for over 150 years and today you are able to see, feel, smell, and hear some of this wonder of nature. At Te Puia, experience the raw power of Te Whakarewarewa geothermal valley with bubbling mud pools, steaming vents and the world famous Pohutu Geyser. Enjoy a soak at Polynesian Spa. 

Take a ride on the 8-seater gondola which climbs up the side of Mt Ngongotaha and experience Rotorua’s most spectacular views with Skyline Skyrides. This is a fun, all age, all weather attraction with views of the city and Lake Rotorua. You can have lunch here at the café or restaurant and enjoy the fresh air a little more if you decide to ride a cart down the Luge. 

Day 4 Rotorua to Waitomo to Auckland
Head north back to Auckland today. On the way stop off at the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. For over 100 years Waitomo Glowworm Caves have attracted millions of people from all over the world.

The moment you enter this subterranean wonderland you’ll discover an ancient underground labyrinth of limestone caves and grottos. You’ll experience a boat trip like no other, journeying through the starry expanse of the Glowworm Grotto, while your way is lit by a multitude of tiny glowworm lights.

Day 5 Depart Auckland
Schedule some last-minute sightseeing or shopping before making your way to Auckland airport. Leave your car at the rental depot located at the airport today for your onward flight.
