This itinerary includes biking through Karangahake Gorge and hiking the Tongariro Crossing – one of the world's most famous one-day hikes – before jet boats and kayaks provide the transport along the Whanganui River. Mix in some bubbling mud and a traditional hangi dinner, and this is the perfect active introduction to New Zealand.
Four nights will be in hotels, with 3 nights in Maori village sleeping houses and multi-shared lodge accommodations. This trip includes 6 dinners, 2 lunches, and 4 dinners as part of the package.
