Day 1: Auckland to Coromandel

Kia ora (hi) and welcome to Aoteraoa (New Zealand)!

Leaving the big smoke behind, we head to the Coromandel Peninsula, a veritable paradise of beautiful beaches and misty rainforests. The drive here is epic – the road twists and turns dramatically round the coastline and the ocean gets clearer and more pristine before your eyes. Cameras ready – the views are magnificent!

The Coromandel is home to the famous Hot Water Beach – thousands visit each year to dig their own personal hot tub. If the tide times allow, we’ll definitely grab our buckets and spades and get busy!

We arrive with plenty of time for your guide to show you around. Sample the sandy beaches or simply enjoy the vibes.
