7-Day North Island Adventure Tour From WellingtonMulti-day Tours

7-Day North Island Adventure Tour From Wellington

Starting from Wellington, we hit up some great spots and places while we make our way up to New Zealand's largest city, Auckland, through the North's hottest destinations. (Note that this tour can also be done from north to south – Auckland to Wellington) If you have some time to spare after your tour wraps up in Auckland, we have a great three day tour taking in the Bay of Islands which showcases the Northland region of New Zealand. Activities can be purchased on the road – just let your tour guide know. We can't always guarantee availability when booking on the road, so we suggest pre-booking any activities you especially want to do. As the tour starts early in the morning, you can opt to book accommodation with us the night before the tour – only having to walk downstairs on the day the tour starts makes for a stress free morning. Accommodation is included on the last night of your tour, but we can also book a few extra nights for you if you would like to extend your stay.
