This trip was originally March 28th. With the new dates we were able to reduce the cost by $150 and the weather will be even better!

First 20 sign-ups get upgraded to lakeside rooms in
Rotorua and Queenstown

It’s been a few years since our first trip to New Zealand, so if you’re ready for a wonderful

adventure, let’s go! This is a complete itinerary, taking in both the North and South Island! We’ll fly out of LAX on the 28th, and after crossing the international time zone we’ll land in Auckland on North Island on Friday for 9 full days and nights in New Zealand.

We’ll start off with 2-days and nights in Auckland. This marvelous city, known as the “City of Sails”, is nestled between two harbors and a gulf full of islands. Auckland is as much about the sea as it is about the land. We’ll get to know the very friendly people and enjoy the sites and will set up a full-day boat tour of the beautiful Bay of Islands.

From there, we’ll head to Rotorua, the heartland of New Zealand’s Maori cultureand also 11 major lakes. We'll have 3 nights here to enjoy all the sights and adventures of this amazing town. This is an extremely thermal area. You'll see geysers of hissing, steaming, scalding water roar from deep within the earth’s crust and hurl spray 100 ft into the air. While there we’ll set up tours to jet boat down the Waikato River through the spectacular Tutukau Gorge and river rafting one of 3 incredible rivers and relax in thermal pools.

This town is also one of several adventure capitals where you can try the Zorb (rolling downhill in a ball like a hamster), try the skydiving simulator (you will experience weightlessness with this jet engine pushing the air up) and have fun with the luge track (a total blast) and many other fun adventures. We’ll also visit the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves with it’s magical light display and amazing underground scenery commencing with the impressive Cathedral.

Then, we’ll fly on to adventureland – Queenstown, birthplace of the bungee jump and the famous Shotover River Jet Boats. Talk about fun! We will set up a bunch of optional tours that will have us doing more river rafting, taking the famous Shotover Jet Boat tour and enjoying a day tour of the majestic Milford Sound. There is so much to do here including sky diving, paragliding another luge, hiking and fun nightlife. We’ll have 4-nights to enjoy this awesome town. Maybe you’ll even bungee jump! It’s going to be a wonderful active vacation full of incredible scenery and sites.

Cost, including the 9-nights, international and domestic air, daily breakfast and

ground transfers is $2,390 (does not include departure tax or fuel surcharge). That’s a great price! Let’s get all our fun, adventurous people together for this one! $200 deposit to get signed up.

    There were 47 people on this wonderful trip. The first couple of days in Auckland were a bit cold and drizzly but then we had very good weather the rest of the trip. Our tours were so much fun (see photos) and worked out great. We tried some new tours with this New Zealand trip including a new geo-thermal park in Rotorua that was really cool, mountain biking that I enjoyed quite a bit and a thermal jet boating experience down this beautiful river in a forest where the peole who elected to got into the water at The Squeeze and made their way to a thermal heated waterfall! One of the best days.
    Everyone liked the hotels which were all 4-star and in the best locations. It was also a particularly great group of people. They all enjoyed each other very much and I'm sure friendships were forged that will last a lifetime.
    Hope you can join us on one of our upcoming trips. Check out
