Day One - Auckland
Depart approx 21:00
Straddling a narrow isthmus created by 60 different volcanoes, New Zealand's former capital boasts scenic beauty, historical interest and a cosmopolitan collection of shops, restaurants, museums, galleries and gardens. Rangitoto, Auckland's largest and youngest volcano, sits in majestic splendour.
Day Two - Bay of Islands
Arrive 07:00 - Depart 17:00
Some 150 isles - many still secluded - and a handful of coastal towns make up the Bay of Islands. Captain Cook gave the region its name in 1769. Nowadays, the azure waters full of big game fish attract visitors from far and wide.
Day Three - Relaxing day at sea
Day Four - Milford Sound
Arrive 06:00 - Depart 07:00
The Maori believed it was a godly mason who hand-carved Milford Sound. The sheer precision of every slope is unfathomable, which is why Milford Sound is one of the most visually enticing natural wonders in all of New Zealand.
Arrive 11:30 - Depart 12:30
One of the unusual features of Doubtful Sound is that it has two layers of water. The freshwater flows on top of the seawater, and the two never mix together. As a result, much of the marine life can be found closer to the surface.
Day Five - Dunedin
Arrive 06:30 - Depart 14:30
The grand 19th-century Victorian buildings are as characteristic to the city as the natural surroundings. Stroll through the historic part of town or travel by vintage train to view Otago Harbour, where seals and penguins sunbathe.
Day Six - Wellington
Arrive 08:30 - Depart 16:30
A red-hot arts scene, hip wine bars, designer boutiques, and steep hillsides lined with picture-perfect Victorian houses – the Kiwi capital has them all. If you’ve had enough of city trappings, nearby destinations like Wairarapa wine region beckon.
Day Seven - Napier
Arrive 06:00 - Depart 14:00
Known as the Art Deco City due to the world's largest concentration of art deco architecture. Travel into the foothills and you'll encounter a series of award-winning vineyards against a backdrop of rising mountains.
Day Eight - Auckland
Welcome back to Auckland, you will disembark after breakfast. Just a short walk to the Skybus with regular services direct to the airport.
