March 4-18, 2020
Join Janis and Merri on a comfortable romp through New Zealand’s unspoiled North Island. Often overlooked in the rush to experience the South Island’s rugged adventures, instead we will spend our days on easy-moderate trails and our nights in 3-4 star en-suite accommodations. From Wellington on the southern coast, to its very northern tip, this upper half of New Zealand’s island-nation in the South Pacific is renowned, if less known, for its natural beauty, friendly people, fine dining and rich culture. We will take in the country’s quaint capitals – both new and old, walk among some of the tallest trees on earth and through alpine tussock wilderness on the slopes of active volcanoes, swim and explore vast beaches and coastlines, and relax in natural hot springs. The more adventurous hiker will have an opportunity to hike New Zealand’s greatest day hike: the TONGARIRO ALPINE CROSSING.
