DAY 1 - Queenstown
Queenstown
Kia Ora and welcome to New Zealand, the land of Hobbits and an epic Rugby team, not to mention adrenalin, wildlife, surfing, beach breaks...are you hooked yet? You'll be hitting up the stunning South first, arriving into Queenstown with a free afternoon to kill. This being the adventure capital of the world though, we really doubt you'll struggle to stay entertained. Tonight you'll meet up with your Contiki Crew & fellow adventurers, no doubt swapping notes on which thrill seeking activity to tick off first.
Stay
Jucy Snooze Hotel (or similar)
DAY 2 - Queenstown
Queenstown
Today is yours to get acquainted with Queenstown and spend some time mulling over the activities up for grabs in the next two days. To get you warmed up, we'll be treating you to an exhilirating Shotover Jet experience (until Sep 2018), so throw those hands in the air as you fly through narrow Shotover canyons at speeds of up to 85 kph.

DAY 4 - Queenstown
Queenstown
It's times like this that you really start to work out what sort of traveller you are. And human for that matter. You might be the one trailing through wine country and doing a spot of horse back riding, or you may be that guy that crams in a bungy jump, a skydive and a heliraft & still craves more. It's your holiday - run wild as you see fit.

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Kawarau Bridge Bungy
NZ$205
Wanaka
Enjoying our scenic drive we'll stop for lunch in Wanaka, a pretty ski resort town situated on a lake front and dwarfed by mountains. This town is fast becoming one of NZ's most popular spots, and a trip to the 'Dough Bin' for a luscious pie should be high on the list today.
Haast Pass
Our first piece of NZ eye-candy comes in the form of Hasast Pass, beautified by ancient rainforests, small glaciers and waterfalls. Note how the scenery changes as we roll away from Queenstown through the Southern Alps.
Franz Josef Glacier
Playing host tonight is the town of Franz Josef, home to some of NZ's finest natural beauty with bushlands and glaciers that almost reach the sea. Tomorrow we'll be out and about making the most of it - who's excited?
Stay
Rainforest Retreat (or similar)
DAY 6 - Franz Josef Glacier
Franz Josef Glacier
This morning will be another big ol' tick off the list as we take to the ice of Franz Josef Glacier. Want to double tick the list in gold sparkly pen? We've got a heli ride over the glacier up for grabs for an ultra special experience. Satisfaction levels on high, tonight will be topped off with story swapping and crew drinks at the local. Be sure to breathe in that fresh alpine air - doesn't it feel good.

Kaikoura

Arriving in Kaikoura will see us amongst a seaside settlement known for whales & dolphins, so have those cameras at the ready as we roll around the coast. We'll stop at a seal colony, where you'll struggle not to break into a collective 'cuuuute' as you watch these guys sunning themselves on the rocks.

Picton
Our next drive takes us up the wild, rugged east coast and the wine country of Marlborough. Jump on the Inter-Island ferry and leave the South Island behind. Cruise through the gorgeous Marlborough Sounds, where thick forested peaks rise straight up from the sea. It’s a camera-friendly spot with picturesque inlets, remote coves and tiny beaches that dot the islands.
Wellington
We dock in the capital city of Wellington, where no doubt New Zealand's well-cultured capital will prove an utter delight. After an orientation through the narrow streets a night on the town will be on the cards, plus an optional dinner to start the night off as we mean to go on.
Stay
Mercure Abel Tasman Hotel (or similar)
DAY 9 - Wellington
Wellington
Galleries, cafes, shops, street performers, vintage markets -Wellington you're spoiling us. Stroll the eclectic Cuba Street, grab some sushi & pop by the Tattoo Museum where Maori moko face tattoos and modern ink collide, or hop on a quad bike to get down and dirty.

See an active stratovolcano with Mt Ruapehu
Mount Ruapehu
Known as the après-ski capital of the North island, Ohakune is a tranquil town with stupendous view.  Today you have the option to go mountain biking along one of NZ's most picturesque track, "the Old Coach Rd" or spend the day bettering your skills on the slopes or generally treating yourself to all the snowy based activities on offer, then tonight snuggle down in our Special Stay ski lodge, located in prime position at the base of Mt. Ruapehu.
Stay
Kings Hotel Ohakune
DAY 11 - Mount Ruapehu to Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo
Volcanic peak views & trout fishing will seamlessly slip us into quaint lake life. But don't be fooled by the seemingly still scenery - a bungy jump or skydive are both on the menu if that adrenaline itch needs scratching. 
Stay

Rotorua
When you catch your first whiff of that… ‘unusual’ sulphur smell, you’ll know we’ve arrived in Rotorua. Upon arrival in Rotorua we get to learn some fascinating info on NZ's national birds, as well as watch new lives hatch right in front of our eyes! How impressed are you right now? Soak in a hotspring, go skydiving or take a canopy tour - there's plenty of time for you to make the best of this town.  Tonight we enjoy a Maori dance performance and feast on a Hāngi dinner that is sweetly roasted in the ground.

Rotorua
Famed for its spurting geysers, boiling mud pools & hot springs, gondola and speeding luge rides, Rotorua is a natural wonderland and then some. But don't let the allure of this place consume you, for there's a fun stop at Hobbiton village we must complete. Join us at our short visit at the land of 'Lord of the Rings',  before we head to Auckland. That's right, it wouldn't be a complete experience without a stop at the "Shire".

I feel that I saw a lot of the country and experienced the beauty of the culture. There weren’t too many travel days and I was able to fit in a lot of optional extras without missing out on group activities or feeling over tired. A good mix of high adventure and chill out time, and a great mix of people on the tour.

the tour was amazing and the scenery was breathtaking. the only thing to improve it would be to make the longer tour offered by Contiki should end it Queenstown. and spend the few extra days going down to go through and see the places visited after Queenstown.

I had a great time on this tour. Rae was a great trip manager and got everyone involved. My only complaint is that there were multiple tours on the bus, which meant people starting and finishing in different locations. I started the tour 3 or 4 days into the tour in Queenstown and it seemed like everyone has bonded already.

The trip leader seemed more keen to hang out with her boyfriend in Queenstown. Not only did we not manage to see her but she also forgot to book activities for certain people on the tour. In Franz Josef it was even more of a coincidence that a group of her best friends just happened to be staying at the same place we were at. Moving onto the genuine lack of knowledge she had of New Zealand. I feel I could have just googled the places we were staying at and got more of an in-depth analysis, although it was great to hear from Lucy that every place was “chill”. I guess now it’s on to the bus driver. Well where do I begin? From speeding to drinking the night before driving the bus to making inappropriate comments to the women on the trip to making me get my own bags out of the bus, this guy was by far the most inappropriate and unprofessional person I have ever met. The way he carried on and created drama really affected my trip and make it extremely awkward and uncomfortable. The trip itself was fine, the people in charge were a disgrace. I will not be booking through contiki ever again. Cheers

Some of the places we stayed at were really shabby with no air conditioning. The included activities weren’t good. The add ons were fantastic however.

Although the tour itself was amazing, our tour manager and tour driver made my experience very disappointing.

Some of the hotels were ****. Some were alright. Expensive for the amount of **** ones.
