You will then journey south over the Central Plateau, New Zealand’s main volcanic area. In a country of contrasts, perhaps nothing is more striking than the three peaks of Tongariro National Park rising starkly from the surrounding plateau of tussock and near-desert. Pass through a number of small towns along the road to Wellington, each with their own personality and quirks. Probably the quirkiest of all would have to be Taihape… the self-proclaimed gumboot capital of the world.

8 Day Guided Vacation

Tour departs from Auckland and returns to Wellington

Don't Miss

Glass of Lemon & Paeroa with slice of lemon

Lemon & Paeroa

On this holiday you can quench your thirst with an L&P or Lemon & Paeroa. It’s a sweet soft drink that has been manufactured in New Zealand since 1907. Traditionally made by combining lemon juice with carbonated mineral water from the town of Paeroa, it is now manufactured by multi-national Coca-Cola. The comically pretentious advertising slogan ‘World famous in New Zealand’ has become a popular New Zealand saying; it is used to describe items that though famous within New Zealand are unknown in the rest of the world, whereas similar items and people in larger countries would have a far higher media profile and would therefore be famous worldwide.
