In Auckland—New Zealand’s capital city—you’ll be staying at the centrally located Copthorne Hotel Auckland City, located within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Queen Street. While you’re here, don’t miss a trip to Sky Tower, a 328-meter observation tower with panoramic views of the city’s glittering harbors, beaches, and skyscrapers. You can even go bungee jumping from the top.
Next, you’ll drive your included rental car south to Rotorua, a lakeside town known for its geothermal pools, geysers, and springs. Head to the Waimangu Volcanic Valley to see fumaroles amid lush tropical vegetation, sulphuric rocks, and azure lakes.
For an eerie-yet-magical experience, head to the Waitomo Caves and take a boat ride for an additional fee. The boat glides through an underground river, where if you look up, you’ll see hundreds of tiny glowworms on the cavern’s stalactites.
Finally, you’ll travel to Lake Taupo, where you’ll stay for 1 night at Lakeland Resort, set directly on the shore. Lake Taupo is actually a volcano with no top—it was blown off during an earth-shaking eruption and is now a gorgeous lake filled to overflowing with fish and popular with water-skiers and kayakers. Nearby is Huka Falls, where 220,000 liters of water tumble down a narrow canyon each second.
You’ll fly to Tahiti, where you’ll be greeted at the airport and whisked away to the Manava Suite Resort. You’ll spend 4 nights here, swimming in an oceanfront infinity pool, drinking fruity cocktails, or dining on Polynesian and international cuisine. Though there’s plenty to do at the resort, you can venture beyond the grounds to check out the Robert Wan Pearl Museum, which houses the largest cultured Tahitian pearl in existence. There’s also the municipal market in central Papeete, where you can shop for soaps, handicrafts, oils, linens, and local produce.
