3 overnight trips we offer with our private coach hire

When it comes to getting away for a couple of days, New Zealand has plenty to offer and our private coach hire is the perfect solution when it comes to exploring the country. Whether it’s Dolphin watching in the Bay of Islands, or exploring the mud pits and hot springs of the Bay of Plenty, there’s something for everyone.

From overseas tourists to a local clubs’ annual getaway, our private coach hire offers an easy, luxurious option to visit some of New Zealand’s most iconic locations.

 

Rotorua

The joke with Rotorua is you can smell it before you see it! And while it (sometimes) has a sulphur smell, it’s nowhere near as bad as legend has it.

Known for its geothermal activity (where the smell comes from), Rotorua is one of New Zealand’s top tourist attractions, with millions of people visiting each year.

With bubbling mud pools and thermal spa resorts, Rotorua is the perfect place to detox and relax, and maybe treat yourself to a nice massage afterwards.

But it’s not just for the unique volcanic activity that has people visiting in droves. Rotorua also offers some of the best adventure activities in the North Island, with mountain biking, Zorbing, and white water rafting all nearby.

On top of everything else, Rotorua is also a hub of Maori culture, with a living Maori village open to the public. Here you can explore authentic Maori culture, enjoy a geothermally cooked Hangi, and witness the world-famous Haka.

Hamilton

Hamilton is less than 2 hours from Auckland, but seems a world apart.

A geographically and culturally diverse region, the Hamilton and Waikato region has a range of activities and attractions to suit all ages and tastes.

Hamilton zoo is one of the best in the country, and the famous Hamilton Gardens are definitely worth a visit.

Many people use Hamilton as a base to explore nearby attractions. Hobbiton is just a short journey away, where thousands of people from all over the world come to have a beer in the Green Dragon, and maybe catch a glimpse of Frodo.

Heading in the other direction will take you to the world-famous Waitomo glowworm caves, where you can enjoy the world-famous boat ride under thousands of magical glowworms, and become a part of over 120 years of cultural and natural history.
