Morning – …
Two of the most visited attractions in New Zealand can be accomplished in one day, so climb aboard and let’s go. Depart Auckland and travel south, with your first destination being Waitomo Glowworm Caves – en-route you pass through the Market Garden area of south Auckland, country townships, and lush Waikato farmland. Following the mighty Waikato River which boasts a number of New Zealand’s hydro power plants along its pathway from Taupo to the Waikato Heads.
Passing through Ngaruawahia the home to our Maori King before heading west through more dairy farmland, passing through Otorohanga before arriving at Waitomo, the caving centre of NZ. Waitomo translated in Maori means Wai = water and Tomo = a hole in the ground. Your cave adventure awaits you – the world renowned Glowworm cave with its Cathedral Cave and magical boat ride under glowworm lights.
Today is a very full day so it time for a quick lunch before heading off to Hobbiton Movie Set. Once on set you embark on a 2 hour guided tour of the movie set used for the films of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Stand under the party tree, walk past the Hobbit holes, imagine yourself among the characters. Nestled deep in the rolling hills of the Waikato, this location was chosen for its unblemished landscape. Bilbo Baggins was no typical hobbit and here you will understand why. Left in its original state this is a memory making tour. Back to Auckland – A Day to be remembered.
Note: We will arrange meals for you.
