New Zealand's North Island with Hawaii stopover
New Zealand's North Island Self-Drive vacation combined with 2 nights in Honolulu
Don't miss this chance to experience two magnificent Pacific destinations in one trip. Enjoy 9 nights in New Zealand with car rental and hotel accommodations followed by a 2-night stay in Hawaii!
Day 1/3: Auckland | On arrival at Auckland airport, you will be transferred to your Auckland hotel. In Auckland, you'll find the cosmopolitan vibrancy of New Zealand's largest city where, on the one hand, you have sophisticated shopping, restaurants and entertainment and, on the other, a harbor full of still-pristine islands and spectacular natural beauty.
Day 3/5: Rotorua | Pick-up your rental car at the downtown depo and drive to Rotorua for a 2–night stay. On your way you can make a stop at the famous Waitomo caves and take a guided boat tour along underground rivers and caves that are illuminated by thousands of tiny glowworms. In Rotorua you will witness turbulent geothermal activity - geysers, mud pools and thermal springs, have the opportunity to experience fascinating Maori culture firsthand, and, if you're up to it, try some high-adrenaline fun, such as Zorb globe riding or Bungee jumping.
Day 5/7: Napier | About 3 hours drive from Rotorua is Napier, one of the purest Art Deco cities in the world. It is also a gateway to the famous Hawk's Bay wine region, country’s leading producers of wine; notably red wines – cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah – but also with some quite stunning whites.
Day 7/9: Wellington | Travel south to Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city and "the Middle of Middle Earth". Lonely Planet named Wellington ‘the coolest little capital in the world’ (2011), and the city is renowned for its arts, culture and native beauty. Relax at Oriental Bay, Wellington’s golden-sand inner-city beach and delve into the many museums, art galleries and theatre shows. Stroll along the City to Sea walk where you can experience the best of Wellington's waterfront or ride the cable car up the hill to Kelburn for amazing views over the city.
Day 9/10: Taupo | Drive north to Taupo for an overnight stay at Lake Taupo, known for its water activities such as water-skiing, parasailing, jet-skiing, kayaking. Return to Auckland to catch your midnight flight to Honolulu.
Day 10/12: Honolulu | Spend 2 nights in Honolulu, just a few blocks from the famous Waikiki beach, world-class shopping, fine dining, music and entertainment. Kick back and relax on the beach or explore the surrounding area.
NOTE: This vacation is also available from JFK with a reversed itinerary (Hawaii first, then New Zealand) and at a higher price. Please contact us for details and pricing.
