Meet up with your Contiki Team & fellow travellers before heading out to explore what the locals call 'the big little city'. With 3 nights here, there's so much time for sights, exploring, shopping & more. First up is a trip to stunning Waiheke Island, soak up the beautiful beaches, local vineyards & laidback seaside life. Later, take in the Auckland views from the top of the world famous Sky Tower before a delicious local dinner with the group.
Wake up, grab a bite & enjoy a free day in Auckland to explore your way. Opt to crew a former Americas Cup racing yacht on Auckland-
It's out of the city & into the action today - our morning begins with a flight to Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world. Get your adrenalin pumping with a ride on the Shotover Jet & taste test a world famous, delicious 'Ferg Burger' before experiencing the legendary nightlife of Queenstown at the Minus 5 Ice Bar.
From bungy jumps, canyon swings, luging, gondolas & jet boat rides to Lord of the Rings territory, there's no shortage of things to do in this town & the choice is all yours. With little shops & a stunning lakeside setting, a stroll through town & relaxing by the lake is a must.
Our trip ends after breakfast, so it's time to swap email addresses as you say farewell to your Trip Manager & new friends.
