Auckland - Queenstown
total time: 15 days
Your clients will begin their journey in Auckland, then head south passing through Hobbiton and the geothermal wonderland of Rotorua, to the capital city Wellington. Visitors will then cross the Cook Strait to the South Island and continue towards sunny Nelson. After a breathtaking journey down the West Coast of the South Island, your clients will finish their Hobbit holiday in Glenorchy and Queenstown.
The one thing I left New Zealand remembering is how warm the people were and how generous and kind and welcoming they are. They just are very happy people – and of course they are happy, they live in New Zealand - Luke Evans (Bard)
To ensure your clients are well rested after their flight, we recommend they stay a night or two in their arrival city before collecting a rental vehicle. Driving in a new country can be challenging and will be even worse if the driver is tired. The driver should always be well rested, take regular breaks during the journey and plan to drive for only 1-2 hours at a time.
New Zealand has unique road rules and driving conditions that your clients may not be used to. For a safe and enjoyable journey make sure your clients know where to find information on New Zealand’s road rules before they depart for their holiday.
