3 - 4 days on North Island - need suggestions

Jump to last reply

We may spend 4 nights there this November, flying into and out of Auckland. And yes, I know we should spend more time, but right now we don't have it so a few days will have to do.

The first night we'll have to overnight near the airport because we get in late, and we can spend most of our last day sightseeing in time for a 7 pm flight home. So, that leaves us with 3 nights to spend. I MIGHT be able to extend this to 5 nights and 4 days.

I have just started reading about the area, and so far Rotorua and/or Coromandel looks interesting, and perhaps seeing Hobbiton. Our interests are hiking and nature and a good pub for dinner and beer at the end of a sweaty day.

Please help me with a sketch for 2 nights somewhere and possibly 1 night somewhere else, throw some hotel and driving distance suggestions at me. I don't want three one nighters, but wouldn't mind a two and a one in addition to the night at the airport.
