ROAD TRIP NEW ZEALAND

0096nwzd2018-road-trip-new-zealand
New Zealand is one of the most incredible places on the planet and a road trip is one of the best ways to soak up everything this small but mighty country has to offer. Made famous by Lord of the Rings, travellers have been flocking to New Zealand to see if it lives up to the hype. Can it really be a beautiful as Peter Jackson made out? Yes it can! On a New Zealand road trip with Contiki, everything is taken care of - so you can just worry about gazing out the window in wonder as we drive past mountains, lakes and vineyards, all in the comfort of our modern coaches. Your expert Trip Manager and Driver will give you the full lowdown on the history and cultural significance of the places you visit. Most international flights arrive in Auckland which is a great place to start a New Zealand North Island road trip. Tour the Waitangi Treaty Grounds during your stay in the stunning Bay of Islands and keep an eye out for wild dolphins riding the waves out at sea. Pay a visit to
the Hobbiton movie set, then relax in the natural hot springs of Rotorua where you’ll enjoy a Maori hāngi dinner & cultural performance. Once you pass through the political hub and windy capital of Wellington, you’ll arrive by ferry in New Zealand’s South Island where the road trip continues. Opt for the Heli-Hike at the Franz Josef glacier and you will be blown away by the beauty of this natural ice phenomenon. Visit the historical gold mining town of Arrowtown for a walk back in time then get your adrenaline pumping in Queenstown – the adventure capital of the south nestled amongst the Remarkable Mountains and Lake Wakatipu. Bungy jump anyone? Whether you’re a nature love or adrenaline junkie, a road trip around New Zealand with Contiki will be one of the most memorable trips of your life.
