Auckland to Raglan
Our first stop is New Zealand’s iconic laid back surfer town - Raglan. 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.
Raglan to Taupo
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 by the stunning Lake Taupō.
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 Taupō!
Taupo to Rotorua
Say goodbye to Lake Taupo 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!
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 breathtaking redwood forests.
Rotorua 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.
Coromandel to Auckland
En route back to Auckland, we will delay it as long as possible with some amazing scenery and ‘off the beaten track’ places to visit. Look around and soak in all those memories and those awesome people you turned into your Wild Kiwi Family.

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.
Despite what people say, we think small is best – when it comes to travelling, that is.
