Itinerary

Below is an overview of our planned itinerary although at times, weather and other conditions may affect or alter our route. Don't worry your guide will keep you aware of any changes along the way.

Day 1

Auckland to Coromandel

After a few scenic stops on the stunning drive to Coromandel Peninsula, we arrive into the coastal town of Hahei. Explore the Gateway to Narnia at Cathedral Cove, spend the afternoon kayaking or swimming in the turquoise waters then catch the sunset from the natural hot pools on Hot Water Beach.

Day 2

Coromandel to Rotorua

Say goodbye to the Coromandel as we head to the geothermal centre of New Zealand, Rotorua. Luging, zorbing, white water rafting, cultural performances or simply marvelling at the unique geothermal landscape; there’s heaps to do here!

Day 3

Rotorua

Dive into a jam-packed day in and around Rotorua. Experience the world-famous movie set at Hobbiton, max-out relax in natural thermal hot springs, check out the bubbling mud pools, or discover the breath-taking redwood forests.

Day 4

Rotorua to Taupo

For the next part of our journey we head to Taupo, the adventure capital of the north island. Discover the thundering Huka Falls and the trout-filled rivers before we head for a sunset beer by the stunning Lake Taupo.

Day 5

Taupo

Explore the magnificent lake jetboating, sailing or from 15,000ft above. Fancy a hike? Spend the day conquering one of the best one-day walks in the world, Tongariro Crossing. Whatever you choose, you’ll be spoilt for choice in Taupo!

Day 6

Taupo to Raglan (via Waitomo)

The adventure continues to Waitomo, a town better known for what’s beneath it. Crawl, abseil, raft and squeeze your way through the dark abyss, lit only by the twinkling light of the glow worms above. After all that adventure it’s time for a beer on the beach in Raglan.

Day 7

Raglan to Auckland

Raglan is New Zealand’s quintessential iconic laid back surfer town. Home to one of the world’s longest left-hand breaks, you’ll have the chance to explore the rugged landscape, unique black sand beach and catch a few waves. Then we head back to Auckland where we’ll say our goodbyes, hug it out and leave with stacks of great memories.

The bus trips were excellent and traveling with a smaller group was far more fun then the larger tour groups. Got to see many things a long the way with plenty of stops. Would definitely recommend this trip. Made family and friends back home very jealous.

I could go on and on but I believe with other reviews, this company's reputation speaks for itself. Mahalo for a wonderful time. Aloha!

Why Wild Kiwi

Our Vehicles

Our vehicles get wolf whistles wherever they go – and for good reason, with massive windows to give you an incredible view (they’re tinted too, to protect you from baking in the sun), USB ports and enough leg room to stretch out. There’s also unlimited WIFI available – Talk about the high life!

Our Guides

We find epic humans with a love for NZ, a fondness for creating good times, and the gift of the gab when we put them behind the wheel, tasked with giving you the EXPERIENCE of a lifetime. Our experienced guides pride themselves on finding places a little off the beaten track to ensure your trip is a memorable one.

Small Groups

It means you don’t get lost or left out in the chaos of a large group and you really get to know your fellow Wild Kiwis. Be prepared to make some awesome friendships with people from around the globe – we tend to get tight on our tours!
