Discover the emerald green landscapes, thermal springs and hot geysers of the North Island, then journey to the South Island with its snow-capped mountains, shimmering glaciers and sparkling lakes on this holiday showcasing New Zealand’s natural wonders and fascinating cities.
Fly to Singapore, arriving on day 2. Get to know your travelling companions over a drink at our hotel this evening.
Highlights of Singapore include Merlion Park, home to the iconic Merlion statue, and the Thian Hock Keng Temple, which is dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea. We’ll see all of this and more on our included morning sightseeing tour in the company of a Local Guide.
There’s plenty of time to explore Singapore at your own pace today before we’ll take an overnight flight to Auckland, New Zealand.
We’ll arrive in Auckland today. There is time to rest after your flight before we gather as a group for dinner.
The beautiful city of Auckland is the largest in New Zealand, situated on the North Island in the Hauraki Gulf. We’ll admire its spectacular skyline on an included tour this morning, which takes us to all the must-see sights.
The warm, emerald-green North Island was shaped by the fire of volcanoes, and evidence of this remains in the thermal springs surrounding Rotorua. En-route we will journey through the dairy-rich Waikato farming region, home of the Maori kingdom, and visit the world-famous Waitomo Caves. The amazing glow-worm grotto is a fascinating sight and we will explore in the company of a Local Guide.
Today you have the option to join a tour of Hobbiton, the location created for the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit films. We’ll explore the site, which includes hobbit holes and the Green Dragon Inn, while our guide offers fascinating insight – a must for fans of the films. Alternatively join us for an optional excursion to Rainbow Springs, where you can catch a glimpse of the rare, flightless kiwi bird, take a ride on a gondola and enjoy a taste of regional wines.
Te Puia Thermal Reserve is home to the extraordinary boiling mud pools and spouting geysers that New Zealand is so famous for. We will call here this morning to see this spectacular sight for ourselves. The route to Napier takes us through the Wairakei Valley, past the spectacular Huka Falls to beautiful Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest freshwater lake. We will pause here to take in the mesmerising views.
Wellington, New Zealand’s wonderful capital, enjoys a beautiful setting on the southern tip of the North Island. We’ll head here today with an orientation tour on arrival to highlight the city’s main sights.
We have left today free for you to explore the city with your travelling companions. Perhaps take the cable car to the Botanical Gardens or visit the Te Papa Museum, which offers a wealth of information about New Zealand and its history, along with a collection of art.
We set sail for the South Island today. Once back on land we continue the drive to Christchurch, often referred to as the most English city outside of England. We’ll enjoy stunning scenery of the Kaikoura coast along the way.
The TranzAlpine offers a spectacular journey into the Southern Alps. We’ll be on board the train from Christchurch to Arthur’s Pass, the South Island’s highest railway station, passing through the contrasting scenery of the snow-capped Southern Alps and majestic gorges. At Arthur’s Pass we rejoin our coach and continue south to the magnificent scenery and glaciers of the Franz Josef and Fox Glacier regions.
The road through Westland National Park is one of the most scenic ever built, with tremendous ocean views to one side and spectacular forest views to the other. Experience it for yourself as we head to Queenstown, a popular resort in both summer and winter, travelling south crossing the Haast River Bridge and passing Lake Hāwea and Lake Wanaka along the way.
Milford Sound is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful locations in New Zealand. Te Anau is the gateway to Fjordland National Park and our first port of call on today’s tour. We continue through the lush beech forests of the Eglinton Valley and the eroded glacial canyons of the Hollyford Valley, before arriving at Milford Sound itself. A cruise on the Sound, which we include weather permitting, is a great way to appreciate the beauty of the area. Lunch is included.
Explore Queenstown in the company of your fellow travellers or perhaps join us on an optional excursion.
If you’re feeling adventurous, there’s a fantastic opportunity to take an exhilirating jet boat ride on the Dart River. You’ll also enjoy a walk through the bush and go on an exciting four-wheel drive.
Today we travel via the gold mining town of Arrowtown. New Zealand’s spectacular scenery is never-ending and another stunning route delivers us to the Mount Cook region today. If you wish you can take an optional scenic flight over some of New Zealand’s highest mountains and largest glaciers.
A lovely drive this morning takes us across Burkes Pass and onwards to Lake Tekapo. We will travel over the Canterbury Plains and on to Christchurch where an orientation tour introduces us to all the main sights. This evening we will gather with the group to enjoy a farewell drink.
We’ll transfer to the airport for our flight back to the UK.
