From Auckland to Waitomo this road trip will take you through a variety of landscapes and cultural environments. While Auckland is an urban oasis and Rotorua is the heart of New Zealand’s Maori culture, Lake Taupō remains a mix of the two, with both relaxing and adventurous activities available. In Waitomo be sure to take a tour of the Glow Worm Caves and Grotto, a truly unique experience.
