*Double occupancy only. Solo travelers okay--we will match you with a roommate. :-D
We'll start in Auckland and make our way down the North Island where we immerse ourselves in both Novel and Film Experiences, as well as native New Zealand Cultural Experiences:
* Partake in a feast fit for Frodo and Samwise at Hobbiton, followed by a lantern tour of 'The Shire' after dark...
* Spend the afternoon being wowed by the geothermal wonders at the Maori Village, followed by an Indiginous Evening Tour which includes an exquisite Maori feast and traditional storytelling and performances....
* Discover the hidden wonders of the Waitomo Glow Caves via boat, zipline or black water rafting...
After we've experienced as much as time will allow, we will ferry down to the South Island where we will hike, jeep and helicopter (optional with additional fee) our way through dozens more film and novel locations! But don't worry, I do make some time to relax your overworked muscles in the
therapeutic waters of the Hanmer Hot Springs. :-D
Eventually, we make our way to Queenstown where our
Adventure will come to an end.
Many incredible meal experiences are included, along with
all transfers, tips and porterage-where available.
Our guide is Alistair Heather, who is Scottish, but with a
Kiwi father, he considers himself New Zealander, as well.
He's lived in New Zealand, and is a massive fan of the
'Lord of The Rings' series, so he is the perfect guy for this
