Auckland, Queenstown and Hawaii Escape

Duration
11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,299

Escape to Hawaii and say aloha to Auckland on this journey across the Pacific. Begin in Honolulu, where you can explore history and savour the island’s tropical climate. Continue on to New Zealand, where you’ll cruise Auckland’s famous natural harbour and get your adrenaline kick in Queenstown, the nation’s adventure capital.


 This 11-day New Zealand vacation takes you to both Hawaii and two of the largest cities in New Zealand.

Your New Zealand tour begins in Honolulu, the capital city of Hawaii located on the island of Oahu. Take a couple days to explore Honolulu. You can tour the historic site of Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial, which straddles the sunken battleship, the U.S.S. Arizona and pays tribute to the 1,177 servicemen who lost their lives aboard it on December 7, 1941. You can also head into downtown Honolulu to see the seat of the Hawaiian State Government and Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the United States, or spend your time enjoying one of the city’s many beaches.

Your New Zealand vacation continues on to Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand. Auckland is consistently rated one of the most livable cities on the planet and it won’t take you long to see why people are so enamoured of it. Start by admiring its natural beauty by climbing the SkyTower to see the city’s two natural harbours from high above. Once you’re back on the ground, take a stroll along Queen Street to do some shopping or check out the trendy Newmarket and Ponsonby districts. While in Auckland, you’ll embark on a Harbour Cruise, which will demonstrate the beauty of the city’s waterways and take you past several icons, such as the Harbour Bridge, Rangitoto Island, and the SkyTower. You’ll also see the Viaduct Basin and historic Devonport, which includes the famous naval base. Another day, head on an expedition to Waiheke Island to hike across the verdant island and explore the wonders of the Hauraki Gulf.

From Auckland head to Queenstown, the nation’s adventure capital. Based on the shores of Lake Wakatipu in the Southern Alps, Queenstown is the place to be to satisfy your wildest outdoor ambitions. If you’ve ever dreamt of skydiving, bungee jumping, or jet-skiing, you’ll be able to make those dreams a reality in Queenstown. Of course, the city and its surrounding landscape holds opportunity for more than just adventure tourism. You can also slow down the pace with a visit to nearby wineries or take advantage of the city’s location by heading on a day trip to Milford Sound, the loveliest spot in the country.

This escape to Hawaii and New Zealand combines history and nature for an unforgettable vacation.
