Prelim itinerary- 12 nights on the North Island

Jump to last reply

Hi all-

I've read through many older posts and wanted to get your feedback on our proposed North Island itinerary. We will be traveling in late November and I've heeded the earlier advice from many to stick to one island given the short timeframe. We are in our early 40's and interested in scenery, visting small towns, wine, and just overall experiencing a new place. We will be driving once we leave Auckland.

One item worth noting- we have to fly through Sydney and I originally thought we should add a day or two there (I've never been, my husband has), but I don't think I have any time to spare in the agenda below...except maybe starting our trip a day earlier.

Monday- arrive Auckland in the afternoon; recover from insane flight
Tues- Auckland
Wed- Rotorua
Thurs- Rotorua
Fri- Rotorua
Sat- Taupo
Sun- Napier
Mon- Napier
Tues- Martinborough
Wed- Martinborough
Thurs- Martinborough
Fri- drop car in Wellington and fly back to Auckland
Sat- depart for home

Ok, what would you change?? It seems like we're missing a ton, but there's only so much we can see in 12 days as we don't want to feel rushed. Thanks!
