Day 24: Wellington (or optional transfer to Auckland)

The tour has come to an end, it’s time to say goodbye to your new roadtrip mates and prepare to part ways.

If your plan is to stay in Wellington there is still plenty to see and do. Perhaps a self-guided tour of Te Papa Museum, or visit the famous Weta Workshop where a lot of Lord of the Rings props were designed.

For those heading back to Auckland we highly recommend the Northern Explorer train where you’ll get to experience the extremes of New Zealand’s scenery, from the fertile farmlands of Waikato to the volcanic peaks of the Central Plateau and the sparkling Kapiti coast.

The journey covers 680km of New Zealand’s finest scenery as it travels between Auckland and Wellington. The train has three scheduled departures a week leaving early morning and arriving in Auckland in the early evening.

Alternatively, for those who just can’t get enough of their Haka Tour Manager, you’re welcome to hitch a ride back to Auckland in the Haka Tour Bus.
