Catherdal Cove Coromandel (CS).jpg


8 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.


The Coromandel Peninsula is one of New Zealand’s best-kept secrets. It is an area of beautiful golden sand beaches and magnificent native forests. 

Our eight-day Coromandel Winter Escape incorporates some of the best sights and beaches of the area, including the historic Gold Mining town of Waihi, Whangamata, Driving Creek Railway, Cathedral Cove, Hot Water Beach and Whitianga, while travelling at a relaxed and leisurely pace.

Beginning on the Kapiti Coast we journey north, across the Desert Road, a central volcanic plateau, past Lake Taupo before arriving in Rotorua to discover urban delights, geothermal wonders, and traditional Maori culture at its very best.

Continuing our journey through to Whitianga, a lovely seaside settlement on the Coromandel Peninsula, here we find a place we can leave the stresses of life behind.  Our time in Whitianga is spent exploring all things Coromandel, before heading west over to the fabulous Driving Creek Railway.  Farewelling the Coromandel, we head through Thames to Morrinsville’s and the famous “Herd of Cows?”, before travelling on to explore tranquil Sanctuary Mountain and movie magic at Hobbiton.  

Our final stop on this lovely tour sees us back in Taupo to view the always roaring and beautiful Huka Falls and before our farewell dinner together.

You may also fly in and out of either Wellington or Kapiti to connect with this tour. Our travel team is able to assist with flight arrangements if required.
