After a leisurely breakfast we drive to the boutique wine village of Martinborough, located deep in the heart of the Wairarapa. Many vineyards are within an easy walk of the town square and the region is particularly well-known for its production of Pinot Noir wines.

Day 3: Pukaha Mount Bruce, Tongariro National Park (B,D)

This morning, enjoy a guided tour of the Pukaha Mount Bruce Wildlife Centre, a captive-breeding sanctuary for some of the country’s most threatened birds and home to the only white kiwi in captivity. Continue north along the Desert Road to Tongariro, Aotearoa's oldest national park and a dual World Heritage area.

Day 5: Exclusive Lake Rotoiti Cruise and Redwood Treetop Walk (B)

Today’s highlight is an exclusive cruise across the serene, clear waters of Lake Rotoiti. Explore native bays and coves of the lake under sail on our luxury catamaran and bathe in the thermal waters of the Manupirua Pools. Later, enjoy a suspended treetop eco-walk amongst Rotorua’s gentle giants in the Redwood Forest and get a unique bird’s-eye perspective of these 110-year-old trees and the lush flora below.

Day 6: Rotorua, Hobbiton, Auckland (B,L)

Cross the Mamaku Ranges this morning and leave Rotorua behind, travelling into the lush farmlands of the Waikato, a peaceful and idyllic area noted for dairy farming and its horse studs. Arrive into Matamata and meet your guide who will escort your group on a fun and interesting Hobbiton Movie Set Tour, taking in the picturesque set locations and providing a deeper look behind the scenes of the filming for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Enjoy a festive lunch at The Green Dragon Inn before travelling on to Auckland, the ‘City of Sails.

Day 7: At leisure in Auckland (B,D)

With a full day to explore the vibrant city of Auckland, why not take a stroll and check out the cafe culture evident in the city’s winding laneways or the fabulous Viaduct precinct? No visit would be complete without a trip to the summit of the magnificent Sky Tower, at 328m the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere, for superb city and harbour views. Tonight, enjoy a farewell dinner with your new-found friends.
