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’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.
Talk about 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 5-nights to enjoy this awesome town. Maybe you’ll even
bungee jump! It’s going to be a wonderful active vacation
full of incredible scenery and sites.
