Leave the cold UK weather behind and journey down to the South Pacific for a 14-night self-drive tour around the sunny north island of New Zealand. Fly with Singapore Airlines, the world’s most awarded airline, and enjoy the exceptional service that the cabin crew offer to all passengers as they go the extra mile to ensure that you enjoy your journey with them.
Begin your adventure when you touch down in the major harbour city of Auckland and pick up your rental car. The city’s calendar is jam-packed with a wide variety of interesting events from sports and music through to festivals and theatre productions. You won’t have to travel far to find outdoor adventure around the city though, Mount Eden is just a short drive from the centre and offers splendid views out to sea, and at just 196 metres high it’s easily manageable. Step into Middle Earth as you take the included Hobbiton Tour from Auckland and visit the set of one of the most Iconic movie franchises ever. Following Auckland, drive south and head for the east coast city of Tauranga. Lined by long swathes of golden sand and the blue inviting Pacific Ocean, Tauranga is a metropolitan hub and the largest city in the Bay of Plenty. Explore its Strand Waterfront area with its many cafes, bars and restaurants and when you feel like you’ve explored all it has to offer, take a short drive to Mount Maunganui for a day out and find out what makes it one of New Zealand’s top beach towns. It’s now time to venture inland to lakeside Rotorua to experience the geothermal springs and native Maori culture. Rotorua has been voted New Zealand’s most beautiful city six times and it’s clear to see why from the picturesque natural surroundings that encompass the city. It’s now on to the huge Lake Taupo and to its namesake town on its northern shores. The lake is perfect for activities so pack your swimwear as swimming, water-skiing, sailing and kayaking are all available. To see the marvellous Maori rock carvings, join a kayak trip and admire them from the lake surface. Following your outdoor adventures, it’s back to Auckland to tick off everything you missed the first time round and enjoy your final taste of New Zealand hospitality.
