DAY 1

On day one, we will take you to one of New Zealand’s most popular postcard images – the famous Cathedral Cove and give you a hint of what you can expect to see on the second day. Get your cameras ready! This is the place to take beautiful and crazy pictures, while experimenting with the shade drawn by the cave. The setting is so special that the creators of Narnia included it in their movie.

Next, we get the opportunity to tick off another item on the ‘101 must-do’s for Kiwi’s’-list with our visit to Hot Water Beach. It is famous for the underground river of hot water that flows and bubbles up just beneath the surface of the sand. With a shovel in hand, you can dig a hole to create your very own spa pool directly on the beach, as the tide comes in. Next, we will settle into our accommodation, conveniently located right by the beach. As you are getting ready for the night of partying planned, the meat is being prepared and ready to be served for a nice and cosy barbecue. If theres one thing for sure, it’s that we are going to take you to party and celebrate throughout the night. Get ready to rock the dance floor!

DAY 2

The second day awaits you with breakfast. After you have recovered from the night before, you have the possibility to explore the marine wildlife of the Pacific Ocean during an exhilarating  optional kayaking adventure. If were lucky enough, we might get dolphins joining the tour! This time approached from the sea, we will explore the islands off the coast, before heading towards Cathedral Cove. We will leave some time to relax on the beach, jump off rocks into the ocean and have a swim. If you are not kayaking; we have a chill-out session at Hahei beach where you can buy an 8-scoop "gut-buster" ice-cream or simply unwind after such an action-packed weekend
