Coromandel Wanderer Small Group Tour from Auckland
This one day tour from Auckland to Coromandel will leave you feeling like you just found paradise and will have you feeling relaxed in no time. Time seems to slow down in this part of the country with amazing beaches, famous coves and stunning forests and breath-taking views around every corner.
Starting the day, we will pick you up from your hotel in our modern comfortable minibus and travel through the scenic New Zealand countryside as we head to the incredible Coromandel Peninsula. Our first stop will be Cathedral Cove, the spot featured in the movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Cathedral cove is one of New Zealand's most famous and beautiful beaches and a must do activity for a visitor to New Zealand. There are no roads to this beach, so we will need to take a quick water taxi or bush walk to get there. Once we are there, take some time to relax, get some amazing photos, sunbathe, swim, play sport or just enjoy the spectacular views.
We then take some time out for lunch at a great local restaurant where you can try some local food and even have a beer if you choose (food and beverages additional cost).
Our next stop is the famous Hot Water Beach, where you can dig a hole in the sand to create a naturally heated geothermal water bath. Dig your hole at the edge of the beach to get ocean waves flooding in and cooling you off occasionally. What could be better than a natural geothermal spa on the beach, surrounded by nature!
After Hot Water Beach it's time to make our way back to Auckland but not without stopping for a delicious ice cream and some more amazing photo opportunities.
