Auckland - Wellington
total time: 5 days
Visitors begin their Middle-earth journey in New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland; your clients will then journey south to Hobbiton and the geothermal wonderland of Rotorua. Passing through the rocky slopes and grassy tussocks of Ruapehu, visitors end their Middle-earth trip in Wellington.
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.
