6 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour.

Join us as we celebrate the often under-appreciated heartland of New Zealand, spending 6 fun filled days exploring the scenic Manawatu and Rangitikei regions. 

Our quintessential country roads tour covers everything from the delights of farmers markets to garden tours, rose gardens, bush walks, cheese tastings and river cruising.

Of course, no country roads tour would be complete without a farm visit to watch the art of shearing, exploring a robotic milking shed or visiting the Feilding Saleyards and hearing the bang of the hammer during the weekly livestock auctions. Experience all of this, and so much more, as we journey through this fascinating countryside.

We look forward to sharing our passion of these fabulous heartland regions, just waiting to be discovered.

You may fly in and out of Kapiti or Palmerston North to connect with this tour, our travel team is able to assist with flight arrangements if required.
