Description


New Zealand nature certainly boasts a huge variety of rocks, plants and animals, and we will propose them all to you in more ways than you can imagine. But we are also adamant that the few cities with a decent population are really worth visiting. They are beautiful and clean, they will make you feel safe day and night, and they offer a wide range of activities for the whole family.

If you are after the very big picture, it is a bit difficult for us to recommend one island more than the other, each of them having its own special thing. Make up your mind according to what you like or your centres of interest. The only advice would be not to try and see it all unless you can actually give yourself enough time.

Today is the day you pick up your car, and then head off to the beautiful area of Taupo. 

After breakfast, you will be picked up by a cab that will transfer you to the car hire depot. Then: freedom! Head to Taupo, known as the adventure capital of the North. A quirky small town, the stunning surrounds are what brings visitors back time after time. Visit waterfalls, go for an (epic) hike, snack on fresh prawns at the prawn farm, visit the Volcano centre or - if you're feeling really adventurous - try parachuting or bungee jumping.

Wander the streets and enjoy the decor, drive up to mountain lookouts, visit a museum or relax amongst the vines at one of the many fantastic wineries.
