NEW ZEALAND INTENSIVE VOYAGE

Begin your journey in Auckland, where you can enjoy a day visiting the Avondale Markets or take it easy with a harbor cruise. Next up is Bay of Islands. Home to Waitomo Caves, experience some must-do rafting before departing for Kingston, Norfolk Island. A small island in the middle of the South Pacific between Australia and New Zealand, explore it’s verdant green hills and crystal-clear, reef-protected waters between dark stories of Kingston’s past as a convict settlement. 

We arrive in back New Zealand via New Plymouth for more Kiwi experiences before sailing through the jaw-dropping Milford Sound. Over the next few days, you'll get to experience the Scottish-influenced Victorian and Edwardian structures of Dunedin, the Colonial architecture (with a French flair) of Akaroa, and breathtaking views of Wellington from the Kelburn cable car en route to the artist’s haven of Nelson where you can shop for one-of-a-kind pieces.

If you like wine, you’ll love Picton. Located close to the legendary Marlborough wine region, taste this area's renowned terroir with each sip. Then it's on to Napier, where you’ll swear you’ve stepped back in time to the Roaring Twenties with its Art Deco style. With an overnight stay Tauranga, you’ll have lots of time to relax in thermal pools and visit the Pikirangi Māori Village before the journey ends in Auckland.  If you’re not ready to leave just yet, set out on one of our immersive Land Programs.
