Full description
Following hotel pickup, head southwest from Auckland into the beautiful Hunua Ranges Regional Park, where you will be immersed in the lush green nature for which New Zealand is famous.

Make a first stop at Hunua Falls, where a short 100-yard walk will have you at the base of the scenic 100-foot plunge of the waterfall, ideal for photos and a stroll. From there, continue east to highway 25, which wraps around the west coast of the Coromandel Peninsula.

Ride as close to the water as possible as you pass through Thames and make your way to Coromandel Town. Stop there in the shacks and taste some local seafood produce, such as oysters, mussels, and more (non-seafood options also available).

Afterwards, take a one-hour, narrow-gauge train ride through mountain forests and past pottery sculptures which highlight the local history and flora nicely. Then, descend through the mountain divides toward the east coast beaches to discover the world-famous Hot Water Beach.

Due to the volcanic subterranean nature of the area, hot water rises from the ground at this beach; take the chance to dig your own hot tub on the shoreline and bathe in the hot water while taking in beautiful views off the coast. Your guide will then drive you back to Auckland for hotel drop-off.
