Itinerary

Auckland to Rotorua

Welcome to New Zealand, bro! Say kia ora to your new Topdecker family before we hit the road. En route to Rotorua we’ll swing by the Waitomo Caves - a glowworm-studded labyrinth of underground caves and rivers. This place is like something out of a sci-fi movie! Choose to explore on foot, by boat or brave the cold on a unique blackwater rafting experience (trust us, it’s awesome). Later, we’ll learn some Haka moves and watch a Poi dance before tucking into a delicious dinner at a traditional marae (Maori meeting ground).

Rotorua

Are you ready for all the optional extras your free day has to offer? If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, don’t miss the Hobbiton movie set (think: alllll the Middle Earth vibes). Or, you could always head to the geothermal reserve for a healing mud spa. And for the thrill-seekers? Try a spot of Zorbing (aka rolling downhill in a giant inflatable ball). When in New Zealand...

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

Rotorua to Tongariro National Park

Crank the heat up to the max - today we’re off to check out the area’s famous geothermal activity on an included tour. This experience comes complete with a traditional Hangi lunch - a meal of roasted meat and veggies slowly cooked in an underground oven pit. After catching a glimpse of a Kiwi bird or two, we’ll make tracks to Huka Falls (you’ll hear the rumble before you see them). Finally, we’ll swing by beautiful Lake Taupo before settling in at our accommodation near Tongariro National Park. Phew! What. A. Day.

   Meals:   Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  Hotel:  None

Tongariro National Park

Known as one of the best one-day hikes in the world, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing sure lives up to its reputation - and you’ll get the chance to complete it today (weather dependent). With three volcanic peaks dominating the horizon and terrain that’ll make you feel like you’re on Mars, this hike is 100% worth the sore legs the next day. Not in the mood for a walk? No worries. There’s an optional quad biking experience we can hook you up with instead.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

Tongariro to Wellington

On our final day together, we’ll hit up Wellington. Get your bearings as we head to Mt Victoria for 360-degree city, harbour and ocean views. After that, you’re free to do as you please. Our top tips? The fascinating Te Papa Museum and the pretty botanical gardens - and don’t miss the nightlife here, either. With more bars and restaurants per capita than New York, there’s no better place for a farewell night out!
