Honeymoon in the Land of the Long White Cloud

Spend 21 days in New Zealand, the perfect honeymoon destination! During your stay you will see the diverse scenery New Zealand has to offer, as well as benefit from great kiwi hospitality which will make your once in a lifetime honeymoon truly special.

DAY 1

Auckland

This day will be dedicated to your arrival in the "City of Sails". Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand and in the Pacific Islands! It is often mistakenly assumed to be the capital of the country (the capital is actually Wellington). You will be transferred to your accommodation and depending on your mood and the time of your arrival, you can have a first look at the city. Read more

One night in Auckland
DAY 2

Auckland - Coromandel

Once you have picked up your rental car, you will leave Auckland to head for Coromandel. This is the favourite holiday destination for Aucklanders, with its lovely coastlines and great beaches. While you are here, you can check out many different places around the peninsula, it takes time though as the roads are quite windy. This is why we always recommend staying at least a couple nights here. Read more

One night in Coromandel
DAY 3

Coromandel

Check out Coromandel Town, In 1852 the discovery of gold at Driving Creek brought a boom to Coromandel town. A lot of history dating from that time is still evident in the town today with the old buildings, antiques and just the general atmosphere. Driving Creek Railway is New Zealand's only narrow-gauge mountain railway along with a working pottery workshop and wild life sanctuary. A fun activity to do with the kids. Cathedral Cove is very popular with tourists and is a good spot for swimming as it’s a marine reserve. There is a walking track (1hr30 return) from the northern end of Hahei Beach, and it’s also possible to walk from the local council car park at the top of the headland between Hahei and Gemstone Bay. You can also get there by boat or kayak. Read more

One night in Coromandel
DAY 4

Coromandel

You can have a wander through the lily garden at Rapaura Water gardens (take the bumpy road on the right at Tapu village). This is also a very good place for a lunch break. Check out the Hot Water Beach, a unique beach where you can dig your own hot pool in the sand!

One night in Coromandel
DAY 5

Coromandel - Whatakane

Located 90 kilometres from Tauranga, Whakatane is an attractive coastal town situated on the banks of the Whakatane River. It has a vibrant retail and commercial area, which includes a diverse range of shops, cafes, restaurants and accommodation options. This is also the point from which you will get a ferry to the White Island, the last active volcanic island in New Zealand! Visiting this Island is definitely a worthwhile experience. Read more

One night in Whatakane
DAY 6

Whatakane - Rotorua

Rotorua is the most touristic city in the North Island, and is known for being right in the middle of the geothermal region of New Zealand. Here you will find multiple geothermal sites where you will see colourful thermal pools and geysers, and during the evening, maybe go relax in the hot Polynesian spas! You can also check out Redwood forest where you can go for a walk through the trees lit with many different coloured lanterns, or, if you are looking for something more active, you can go for a bike ride through the forest. Read more

One night in Rotorua
DAY 7

Rotorua - Tongariro

Next you will be driving to Tongariro. The region is also famous for featuring in the Lord of the Rigs trilogy, representing Mordor and Mount Doom: if you are a fan, this is definitely a must-see! The region is also known for its famous full-day hike: The Tongariro Alpine Crossing, but you can also go hiking to various areas, such as Taranaki Falls and the Tama Lakes. You can choose to stop and turn around whenever you want if you the walks are too long! Read more

One night in Tongariro
DAY 8

Tongariro - Wellington

After a long drive from Tongariro, you arrive in Wellington: the little capital of New Zealand! It is a smaller city than Auckland, but also known for being more colourful and artistic. This is where you will find the Te Papa Museum (national museum) which contains many Maori artefacts and is highly recommended if you want to learn of New Zealand’s history. Read more

One night in Wellington
DAY 9

Wellington - Picton

The ferry will dock at Picton, a nice sunny seaside town in the Marlborough Sounds. It is the perfect location to use as a launching pad to experience all that the Queen Charlotte Sound offers; jump on a mail boat cruise, take an eco-tour to Motuara Island Bird Sanctuary, kayak in the tranquil waters of Anakiwa or spend the day at a lodge enjoying the local seafood. There are nature reserves and a range of local bush walks with varying degrees of difficulty, all offering spectacular views, or travel by boat to walk the famous Queen Charlotte Track, deep in the heart of the Queen Charlotte Sound. Picton is also where you will get to go on a seafood cruise in the sounds, tasting seafood and wine! Read more

One night in Picton
DAY 10

Picton - Kaikoura

Kaikoura is a nice seaside town that attracts many tourists. It was greatly affected by the earthquake of 2016 but has recovered quite well. It does have some interesting scars though: the earthquake actually elevated some rocks from under the water, so now you will see lines of rocky formations on the surface of the water going out the sea. Here you can do many things such as swimming with dolphins, whale-watching from a plane or a boat, or even just see some seals lying around on the beach. It is also a good place if you like walking: there is for example the Kaikoura Coast Track which takes you along the coast for a couple of hours. Read more

One night in Kaikoura
DAY 11

Kaikoura - Akaroa

The Banks peninsula is full of picturesque bays, seaside villages, boutique galleries and cafes. The highlight of this peninsula is Akaroa, a historic French and British settlement nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano. Explore the village with its colonial architecture, galleries, craft stores, and cafés. Read more

One night in Akaroa
DAY 12

Akaroa

Akaroa Harbour is the only place on the entire planet where you can get up close and personal with NZ's playful Hector's dolphins either by simply watching them or even swimming with them. Here is also where you will find the biggest little blue penguin colony in the country! If you like walking, Akaroa is the starting point of the Banks Track but also of plenty of other day walks. You reach altitude quite fast and the views over the caldera are great. Read more

One night in Akaroa
DAY 13

Akaroa- Tekapo

Lake Tekapo and the Tasman Glacier, the largest glacier in New Zealand. If you have the time you can explore the area, take in the sights, do some hiking or you could go one of many scenic flights which will allow you to see a lot of the surroundings from the air, the longest even going all the way to the West to show you the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers! If you are looking to hike, the Hooker Valley Track is the most popular track in the area. Read more

One night in Tekapo
DAY 14

Tekapo

In Tekapo you will also find some hot pools, great for some relaxation, especially during cooler weather. Tekapo is also known as one of the best places in the world to do some star-gazing as the sky is so clear. If you are lucky, you may even see the southern lights!

One night in Tekapo
DAY 15

Tekapo - Wanaka

Wanaka, a place where you will find diverse landscapes, lake, forest, mountains and glaciers! You will have the opportunity to do various activities here such as jet-boating, hiking, biking, wine tasting… But we highly recommend staying a couple of nights here even if just for the sights and great places that are ideal for walks in the middle of nature! Read more

One night in Wanaka
DAY 16

Wanaka

If you are a wine connoisseur, Wanaka will be especially interesting to you because it is one of New Zealand’s most important wine regions! You will find many places you can do some wine tasting if you wish, such as Mt Difficulty and Rippon Valley which are outstanding.

One night in Wanaka
DAY 17

Wanaka - Te Anau

Te Anau is your stop for checking out the fjordlands. This region is completely cut off from the cities of New Zealand, and is a great spot to get your fill of nature! The main thing most tourists come here to do is a cruise on the Milford Sound: it is the most famous cruise of the country and a beautiful thing to behold whether it be a nice sunny day, or when it is raining because that is when you get to see waterfalls appearing on the sides of the fiord (which has a very high probability of happening in the region, as it rains 200 days a year). Read more

One night in Te Anau
DAY 18

Te Anau

Despite the Milford Sound’s resounding success in tourism, there is another fjord we highly recommend: The Doubtful Sound. This Fjord is not so well-known but is 3 times larger and 10 times longer than the Milford Sound. We also recommend seeing it on an overnight cruise, which will let you see it in all its glory. There are of course other things to see and do in Te Anau, such as checking out the glow-worm caves and the national park where you will see the local wildlife! Read more

One night in Te Anau
DAY 19

Te Anau - Queenstown

Queenstown, the capital of outdoor activities. Here you will be able to do such things as skydiving, jet boating, paragliding and much more! There is also some great scenery around the city, many of the landscapes in the area were actually used during the filming of many movies such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Read more

One night in Queenstown
DAY 20

Queenstown

Queenstown is in the world's southernmost wine region, you’ll find acclaimed Pinot Noir, as well as Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and bubblies. There are 75 wineries in the region serving 177 vineyards. You could also take a scenic cruise on Lake Wakatipu. There is plenty of time to explore the decks and bridge, view the engine room, join a sing-along with the on board pianist or sit back and relax. Read more

One night in Queenstown
DAY 21

Departure

Today is the day you depart from Queenstown, the end of your journey. By now you have hopefully taken lots of pictures and made many new memories in New Zealand that will stay with you forever!
