is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is so natural
and if you like adventure, it's the place to be. This will be
our 4th trip and I can say with confidence
that you will love this complete
itinerary, taking in both the North and South Island!
We’ll fly out of LAX on the 15th, and after crossing the international
time zone we’ll land in Auckland on North Island on Thursday for
10 full days and nights in New Zealand.
off with 2-days and nights in Auckland. This marvelous city, known
as the “City of Sails”, is nestled between two
harbors and a gulf full of islands. Auckland is as much about
the sea as it is about the land. We’ll get to know the very friendly
people and enjoy the sites. On our last trip we chartered a high
performance sailboat and went out on a wonderful sail. Auckland
is the home of the America's Cup and they take their sailing seriously.
Our hotel is in prime position and walking distance to the harbor.
We may also arrange another social with a Meetup
group in Auckland which was really fun on our last visit!
we’ll head to Rotorua, the heartland of New Zealand’s Maori
culture and also 11 major lakes. We'll have 3 nights here to enjoy
all the sights and adventures of this amazing town. This is an
extremely thermal area. You'll see geysers of hissing,
steaming, scalding water roar from deep within the earth’s crust
and hurl spray 100 ft into the air. While there we’ll set up tours
to jet boat down the Waikato
the spectacular Tutukau Gorge and river rafting one of 3 incredible
rivers and relax in thermal pools. This
town is also one of several adventure capitals where you can try
the Zorb (rolling downhill in a ball like a hamster), try the
skydiving simulator (you will experience weightlessness with this
jet engine pushing the air up) and have fun
with the luge track (a total blast) and many other fun adventures.
We’ll also visit the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves with it’s magical
light display and amazing underground scenery commencing with
the impressive Cathedral. We even discovered a new tour
on our last trip called The Squeeze where a jetboat takes us down
river into this cove where we wade into a tight canyon and into
thermal water to a thermal waterfall!
fly on to adventureland – Queenstown, birthplace of the
bungee jump and the famous Shotover River Jet Boats.
fun! We will set up a bunch of optional tours that will
have us doing more river rafting, taking the famous Shotover Jet
Boat tour and enjoying a day tour of the majestic Milford Sound.
There is so much to do here including sky diving, paragliding
another luge, hiking and fun nightlife. We’ll have 4-nights to
enjoy this awesome town. Maybe you’ll even bungee jump!
