This is an itinerary for people who love wild places and outdoor adventures. Begin with the geothermal attractions of Rotorua and Taupo, then get close to the volcanoes of Tongariro National Park.

Embark on a river adventure in Wanganui on the way to Wellington’s cultural fun. The alpine village of St Arnaud gives you a taste of South Island adventure, while in Hanmer Springs you can enjoy spa therapies.

Your last few days offer a range of mountain-country experiences – explore the walks around Mt Cook village and enjoy the high life in Queenstown. Nothing beats a boat trip on Milford Sound, from Te Anau or Queenstown.

Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is situated between two enormous harbours and dotted with 48 extinct volcanic cones. Adventure activities here include jet boating, bungy jumping off the Auckland Harbour Bridge, and leaping from the top of the Sky Tower.

Your journey south will take you through the fertile dairy farming region of the Waikato, accompanied much of the way by the mighty Waikato River. Take a detour at Matamata if you'd like to visit Hobbiton Movie Set.

Enjoy plantation pine forest before you encounter the unusual volcanic terrain of the Mamaku district.

Rotorua sits squarely on the Pacific Ring of Fire, so volcanic activity is part of the city’s past and present. Explore the geothermal areas and discover the unique culture of New Zealand’s Maori people. Rotorua is entertaining in any weather, at any time of the year.
