You will be met on arrival at Auckland International Airport by your Aroha NZ Tours Representative, and transferred to your accommodation in our luxurious vehicle. Depending on your arrival time you can spend the rest of the day at your own leisure relaxing or exploring the city.

Or: Waiheke is a haven of beautiful vineyards, olive groves and beaches, all just a 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland. In landscape, lifestyle and experience, Waiheke is a world away. Enjoy succulent fresh oysters, award-winning olive oil and other locally-produced speciality foods, accompanied by wines from some of the Island’s top boutique vineyards.

Day 2: Auckland – Domestic flight to Bay of Islands/Northland (Airport concierge service, private transfers to Lodge)

The Bay of Islands is a subtropical micro-region known for its stunning beauty & history. For those that love beaches and water activities, it's paradise. The Bay of Islands encompasses 144 islands between Cape Brett and the Purerua Peninsula. 

Pack a picnic to take down to one of our three wonderful private beaches, or 
relax, rejuvenate and revive your spirit at your Spa. Immersive local heritage tours, bountiful fishing, and bush walks, mountain biking, quad biking and spa sanctuary hidden within the native forest.

In Kerikeri you can dip into New Zealand history, browse art galleries and enjoy the fresh local produce. This town is full of character, charm and flavour. The town has a long, colourful history. The area was home ground for the fearsome Maori chief Hongi Hika, who terrorised many tribes throughout the North Island in the early 1800s. Yet he was kind to missionaries, allowing Samuel Marsden to establish New Zealand's second mission station here. The Kerikeri Mission Station, also known as Kemp House, is New Zealand’s oldest standing European building. Built to house the Reverend John Butler in 1821, this elegant wooden home has the protection of the Historic Places Trust.

Day 3: Bay of Islands - Golf at Kauri Cliffs

Kauri Cliffs Golf Course is currently ranked #37 in the world by Golf Digest. The Kauri Cliffs golf course, designed by David Harman, of Golf Course Consultants in Orlando, Florida, is an eye-popping 6510-metre par 72 that overlooks the ocean. Kauri Cliffs were named the 49th best golf course in the world by Golf magazine and awarded Best New International Golf Course in 2001 by Golf Digest. Since it opened in 2000, Kauri Cliffs has quickly gained a worldwide reputation that was enhanced in March 2003 when it was the site for Shell's Wonderful World of Golf and a match, hosted by veteran American broadcaster Jack Whittaker, featuring American PGA Tour star Fred Couples and New Zealander Michael Campbell. The inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland, and 15 holes have sea views. Six holes are played along the cliff top that plunges into the sea and in that way are unmatched by any course anywhere.

Accommodation: Bay of Islands at Kauri Cliffs Lodge

Day 4: Bay of Islands – Domestic flight over Auckland to Hawkes Bay

Hawke’s Bay is one of New Zealand’s warmest, driest regions and this has made it one of the country’s leading producers of wine; notably red wines – cabernet sauvignon, merlot and Syrah – but also with some quite stunning whites. The region is the first stop on the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail, and it's a popular place for bicycle wine tours.

To get a feel for the Hawke’s Bay region’s geography, head up to Te Mata Peak, where you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views in every direction. The nature trails here are perfect for hikers and mountain bikers, and on a clear day, you can see as far as the volcano of Ruapehu in the distance – hundreds of kilometres away.

Napier is the Art Deco centre with beautifully preserved 1930’s architecture. The city centre has a feeling of a time capsule. Napier’s other special attractions include the gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers and the many vineyards that make good use of the region’s alluvial soils. Pinot Gris and Syrah are the region's signature drops.

Or: Get the chance to prepare your own lunch with a cooking class at either Breckenridge Lodge or Farmhouse Kitchen and use quality seasonal Hawkes Bay produce. 

Accommodation: Hawke’s Bay at Cape Kidnappers Lodge

Day 5: Hawkes Bay - Golf at Cape Kidnappers

Cape Kidnappers Golf Course is currently ranked #16 in the world by Golf Digest. The Cape Kidnappers par 71 golf course measures 7,119 yards (6,510 meters) and will challenge golfers of all skill levels. Completed in 2004, our spectacular New Zealand golf course has been hailed as one of the great modern marvels in golf. Built on a ridge-and-valley landscape and with stunning sea views, Cape Kidnappers Golf Course plays high above the ocean atop dramatic cliffs. With cliff-edge fairways perched 140 metres above sea level and with surface that remains firm and fast, this course offers holes unlike anything you find elsewhere in the world. While every hole has a spectacular view of the Bay, some play cautiously alongside deep ravines as others intimidate golfers with deep cliff top bunkers and sheer drops off the very edge of the earth.

Gannet or Kiwi tour. Cape Kidnappers is an extraordinary sandstone headland to the east of Hastings in Hawke's Bay. It was named by Captain Cook after an attempt by local Maori to abduct one of his crew. The cape is home to the largest and most accessible Gannet colony in the world. Take a guided tour and travel in comfort in the air-conditioned 4 x 4 wheeled vehicles, through Cape Kidnappers Station - traversing riverbeds, broad rolling pastures, through stands of native bush, steep gullies and breath-taking inclines.

Accommodation: Hawke’s Bay at Cape Kidnappers Lodge

Day 6: Hawkes Bay – Domestic flight to Queenstown

Queenstown is one of New Zealand's top visitor destinations and if you come to the region you'll understand why. The town sits on the shore of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu amidst dramatic mountain ranges; this stunning location will blow you away. Queenstown is suited to all kinds of adventures – especially throughout summer. Activities like paragliding, Zip lining, 4WD Driving, and kayaking are the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. If adventure isn’t your thing and you just need time to kick back and relax, there are plenty of rejuvenating experiences on offer. Treat yourself to some boutique shopping and be sure to experience the excellent local food and wine. 

Affectionately called ‘Central’ by those that know it well, Central Otago is New Zealand’s most inland region, located in the southern half of the South Island. It’s breathtakingly different with vast undulating landscapes, rugged snow-capped mountains, clear blue rivers, deep gorges and tussock-clad hills. S
top in Arrowtown, a historic colonial village that takes you back to the Gold Mining days of the Otago region. Visit the surrounding areas of Arthur's Point and then it's on to Coronet Peak for more spectacular views of Queenstown.

Day 7: Queenstown - Golf at Jack’s Point

With a backdrop of 2300 vertical metres of the Remarkables mountain range and an armchair view of outstanding lake panoramas, Jack's Point Golf course is one of the most visually spectacular in the world. As an 18 hole par 72 championship course it offers golfers an exciting challenge with five tee positions to choose from, providing all golfers with an unforgettable golf experience. The course has been designed around the natural landscape, with minimal excavation. The course measures 6388 metres (6986 yards) from the championship tees and is built on the most spectacular of Jack's Point terrain. Designed in harmony with the natural and local eco-environment, weaving through native tussock grasslands, dramatic rock outcrops, steep bluffs and swathes of native bush to the edge of Lake Wakatipu. The presentation of the course is second to none, which makes Jack’s Point one of the world’s great golfing experiences.

Or: Experience with Skippers Canyon Jet Boat a spectacular guided tour of Skippers Canyon via the infamous Skippers Road, followed by a thrilling jet boat ride through the narrowest canyons on the Shotover River.

One of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand; the power of Fiordland's scenery never fails to enthral travellers. This remarkable natural environment features stunning fiords, spectacular waterfalls and snow-capped peaks. Ancient rainforest clings impossibly to the mountains; waterfalls tumble hundreds of meters into massive fiords; shimmering lakes and granite peaks look the same today as they did a thousand years ago. 

Fly South out of Queenstown as you fly over Mavora Lakes, you will see large-scale farmland, New Zealand native forest to Manapouri. Into Fiordland National park, over into Doubtful Sound which is the second largest Fiordland, view Deep Cove, the Browne Waterfalls, Campbell's Kingdom.
