North Island Itinerary Assistance
We will be spending 13 days in New Zealand and want to cover as much of the countries premier sites as possible. We are arriving in Auckland and will be ending the visit in Christchurch, returning to Auckland by air. This may sound a bit ambitious to some but when we travel, we like to move around and see the sights.
We are just developing our North Island itinerary and could use some comments/suggestions from the experts! Are being too ambitious?
Day 1 Arrive Auckland, Airbus Express to The Langham Auckland, Explore Auckland
Day 2 Auckland/Devonport
Day 3 Late Morning Fullers Ferry to Waiheke Island and transfer to the Te Whau Lodge, rent scooter and explore the island.
Day 4 Late AM ferry to Auckland, Pickup vehicle at Apex, drive to Coromandel Town, Harbor View Motel
Day 5 Driving Creek Railway, wander the peninsula, drive to Lake Taupo, Hilton-Lake Taupo.
Day 6 Would like to drive the Forgotten Hwy to the New Plymouth area and Mount Taranaki. Would overnight and then continue on to Wellington the following way through Whanganui.
