Taupo - Wellington
total time: 6 days
Visitors travel from the centre of the North Island to the bottom, through dramatic New Zealand scenery and friendly small towns.
This tour starts in an area known as the Central Plateau, a playground for visitors year-round, whether they come for skiing at Ruapehu in the winter, or fishing and boating on Lake Taupo in the summer. Passing through filming locations on the way through the Tongariro National Park, your clients can end in Wellington, home of The Hobbit Trilogy Director Sir Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop.
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.
