Full description
Your tour will begin as you are picked up from your hotel in a comfortable mini bus. From there you will be taken on a scenic drive through the New Zealand countryside as you head to the incredible Coromandel Peninsula.

Your first stop will be Cathedral Cove, a spot featured in the film the Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Cathedral Cove is one of New Zealand's most famous and beautiful beaches, and is a must-do activity for any visitor to New Zealand.

There are no roads to this beach, so you will need to take a 40-minute bush walk to get there. Once having arrived, you can take some time to relax, sunbathe, swim, play sport, or just enjoy the spectacular views. You will later have time for lunch at a great local restaurant where you can try some local food, and can even have a beer if you choose (food and drinks not included).

Your next stop is the famous Hot Water Beach, where you can dig a hole in the sand to create a naturally-heated geothermal water bath. Following Hot Water Beach it will be time to make your way back to Auckland, but not without stopping for a quick ice-cream and some more photos.
