This New Zealand adventure tour focuses on travel in the North Island over five days. The North Island is a land of volcanoes, hot springs, waterfalls, and unique combinations of flaura and fauna. It's also home to most New Zealanders, and is especially known for its Maori culture. In Rotorua, mountain bike in the forests, hike along the lakes and learn about local Maori culture. Walk through fascinating volcanic landscape while doing the famous Tongariro Crossing. Enjoy exploring The Shire, Peter Jackson's elaborate Hobbiton movie set, an ultra-realistic fantasy setting of Middle Earth.

I didn't know what hiking was until I went to New Zealand and did it. I've never climbed Everest, and probably never will, but what I did experience in New Zealand I will carry with me in my heart...
