20 Day New Zealand Uncovered Haka Plus Tour

20 Day New Zealand Uncovered Haka Plus Tour

1
You’re probably wondering what makes this tour a little fancier than some of our others with similar itineraries? Well, it’s pretty simple – along with a number of extra-special itinerary inclusions, the biggest difference is you'll stay in comfortable twin-share hotel accommodation. That’s right: say au revoir to busy budget dorm rooms – you get a twin-share room to lay your head down each night. Haka Plus Tours are great for couples or friends who are travelling together. If you’re travelling alone, we’ll match you with someone for an instant road trip pal! Or if you’d prefer a room to yourself, that’s no trouble at all. You have the option to upgrade to a private room as well. We kick off in Auckland and 20 days later we wave goodbye in Christchurch. Along the way you’ll get to see some of the most breathtaking scenery New Zealand has to offer. This includes national parks, rainforests, hidden pools, UNESCO World Heritage Areas, and probably more beaches than you have toes.

7-Day Coasts and Culture Tour From Wellington

7-Day Coasts and Culture 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.
