Haka Tours 20 Day Legendary New Zealand Tour - Detailed Itinerary  

Day 1: Get out of the city and to the beach in the Coromandel

Haka Tours 20 Day Legendary New Zealand Tour - Day 1

Auckland to Coromandel

Leaving the big smoke of Auckland behind you’ll hit the road heading south to the North Island’s best-kept secret, the Coromandel Peninsula. Beautiful remote beaches, dense rainforest and clear blue coastal waters make the Coromandel one of New Zealand’s favourite getaways. You’ll make your way to the world-famous Hot Water Beach where at low tide, you can dig a hole in the sand allowing the natural hot springs to bubble up creating your own personal hot tub – the perfect spot to relax after all that digging!  You'll arrive in Whitianga with plenty of time for your guide to show you around.

Haka Tours 20 Day Legendary New Zealand Tour - Day 2

Coromandel to Rotorua

This morning walk along the cliffs and down to Cathedral Cove (which you might recognize from the Chronicles of Narnia). With perfect beaches and massive rock arches and columns, it’s one of the most popular spots in the Coromandel. Alternatively, take an optional guided Cathedral Cove kayak trip and check out this stunning coastline from a different angle, accompanied by a local dolphin or two if you’re lucky! Later this afternoon we head towards Rotorua (or Rotovegas as it is locally known). En route, we’ll visit Matamata - best known for being the home of Hobbiton. For Lord of the Rings fans, a visit to Hobbiton Movie Set is an absolute must-do. On a fully guided tour of the 12 acre Middle-earth set you will see Hobbit Holes, the Mill, and even enjoy a drink at the Green Dragon Inn! If hobbits aren’t your thing there are plenty of scenic short walks to enjoy Matamata’s lush green rolling hills. While the majority of the North Island is volcanic in some way, Rotorua is exceptional for its geothermal activity. With neon blue and red lakes, steaming rivers, active volcanoes and geysers galore, there are more unique natural wonders to be found in Rotorua than many other places in the world.

SUGGESTED ACTIVITY - Hobbiton Tour

Discover the real Middle-earth on the most picturesque private farmland, where you can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films in a fascinating  2 hour guided tour. Your tour starts with a drive through the picturesque 1,250 acre sheep farm with spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges. Your guide will escort you through the twelve acre site recounting fascinating details of how the Hobbiton Movie set was created. The Hobbit holes, Green Dragon Inn, Mill and other structures created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films can be viewed and you will see how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle-Earth.

If adrenaline is your thing, the highest commercial waterfall drop in the world, on the Kaituna River, is begging to be conquered on an exhilarating rafting trip.

Famous for its glowworms there are a number of ways to experience these twinking creatures up close.  Discover the magic of both the world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, as well as the enchanting Ruakuri Cave on a ‘2 cave combo’ walking/boat tour.

Don’t be alarmed but that beautiful lake you’re looking at - Lake Taupo is actually a giant volcanic crater created 70,000 years ago in one of the biggest eruptions in history.   That was a long time ago and now Taupo is a peaceful holiday destination, except for the screams of tourists throwing themselves out of planes and off bungy ledges. There are heaps of other activities on offer such as quad biking, cruising the lake to see Maori rock carvings, hiking along the shores, mountain biking and even the chance to soak in some of the local geothermal pools. There is definitely an activity for everyone in Taupo and your guide will certainly have plenty of tips and suggestions.  For an epic adventure and something to cross of your bucket list, why not tackle the Tongariro Crossing, considered to be one of the greatest one day hikes in the world.  This 19.4km alpine crossing may be a calf burner but it’s worth every minute for the great views and volcanic landscape. Turquoise and green volcanic lakes greet you at the top, along with vistas that stretch on for miles to the coast. If you’re up for the challenge, you can even scramble up Mt. Ngauruhoe, which depicted Mt. Doom in the Lord of the Rings movies.

SUGGESTED ACTIVITY - Tongariro Crossing

You will be provided with a return shuttle to the famous Tongariro Crossing; New Zealand's best 1 day walk. This walk takes you through the Tongariro National Park and World Heritage Area, dominated by three majestic volcanoes, Mt Tongariro, Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Ruapehu.  During your 19 km hike, you'll follow a well-formed track leading up the saddle between Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro.
