Tour Description

Your 10 Day Classic Northern Escape Tour actually begins at Christchurch, on the South Island. From here we board one of New Zealand's finest train journeys, the Coastal Pacific, for your trip North to

Blenheim and wine country. Along the way we hug the rugged Kaikoura coastline for stunning views. Not far from Blenheim we join the Interislander ferry for a memorable crossing of Cook Strait to New Zealand's Capital and cultural hub, Wellington. Next on our journey are the geothermal and Maori cultural delights of Rotorua, where you visit an authentic Maori village for a hangi (feast) and concert. From Rotorua we head to the famous Waitomo Caves, then on to Auckland and the Bay of Islands.

With free time in Wellington, Bay of Islands and Rotorua, there's plenty of time for you to explore at your own pace, taking in the unique sights and attractions.
