New Zealand & Tahiti Combo

Duration
11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,799

Explore both Tahiti and New Zealand on this air-land combo. Start in Auckland where you'll explore the twin harbours, learn about Maori traditions, and enjoy unbeatable views of the landscape before enjoying Tahiti, home to rugged mountains, coral reefs, sandy beaches and lush green landscapes


This 11-day, air-inclusive South Pacific vacation takes you to one of the most liveable cities on earth before flying on to an island synonymous with tropical paradise. It’s time to pair Auckland and Tahiti.

Fly with Air Tahiti Nui to Auckland, and spend a day enjoying the city at your leisure. Walk the waterfront, zip to the top of the Skytower or Mount Eden for astonishing views, and explore favourite neighbourhoods like Newmarket and Ponsonby. Your second day here lets you go further afield with the convenience of a hop on hop off bus ticket. Two different routes put most of Auckland at your fingertips, including the seaside village of Devonport.

No trip to Auckland is complete without visiting its islands however, and a cruise to Waiheke Island the next day is followed by a 90 minute scenic highlight tour. If that’s not enough, or you find yourself falling just a bit in love with Waiheke, an included all day bus pass lets you explore on your own before returning to Auckland. Your final New Zealand day is devoted to volcanic Rangitoto Island, home to the largest Pohutukawa forest in the world, as well as awesome views over Hauraki Gulf and Auckland.

Fly on to Tahiti, the byword for island paradise, famous for its coral reefs, black sand beaches, and rich fusion of cultures. If you’re expecting sparkling white sands and dreamy honeymoon resorts full of love-struck couples, know that Tahiti itself is the cultural heart and soul of French Polynesia. Here, you’ll have a chance to interact with locals, learn about the local history, and engage with the ‘real’ Tahiti. An afternoon tour of the island takes you to some of the best known sights including Marae Arahurahu temple, and Venus Point, the landing point for many European explorers including James Cook. A full day at leisure gives you time to relax in paradise before flying home.
