NORTHERN SPLENDOUR

NORTHERN SPLENDOUR
Price starting at 188999

Overview

Welcome to one of the planet’s youngest countries, at least in geological terms. Ascend the volcanic cones surrounding Auckland for super city views, before heading south to Rotorua for hot mud spa treatments and helicopter journeys to the jagged volcanic summit of Mt Tarawera. The influence of New Zealand's indigenous culture is more keenly felt in the North Island, where Maori make up a much higher percentage of the population. Venture to the North Island’s East Cape for the most authentic Maori experiences. Northland and Rotorua are also cultural hotspots. Auckland is approximately 21 hrs flight from New Delhi depending on the flights you choose. Come and experience North New Zealand with our “Northern Splendour” package.
