    Head to Te Puke, the world's largest kiwifruit growing region. Stop at the Agrodome to watch the country's best-trained champion rams parade on stage, and a sheep-shearing demonstration. The highly trained sheepdogs will finish the show with a display of sheep mustering.


    Drive past the Rotorua lakefront where you may see a variety of waterfowl as well as several local landmarks before arriving at the Skyline Gondola terminal. Here, you’ll embark one of the aerial gondolas for a breathtaking ride up the side of Mount Ngongotaha, enjoying panoramic vistas of Lake Rotorua, the city and surrounding areas. Arriving at the top of the mountain, the Skyline Restaurant with its unparalleled views is where you’ll be treated to a buffet lunch while a local Maori “Kapa Haka” group entertains you.


    Visit Te Puia, the home to the internationally renowned spouting Pohutu geyser and boasts silica terraces, pools of boiling mud and dramatic steams vents. Your guide being a Maori is keen to share the fascinating local lore and legends of this wonderful country. A strong sulfur smell, a product of the intense thermal activity, will fill the air. Remember to bring your cameras on this exciting geothermal experience.


    View the reserve's fascinating re-creation of an early Maori village, and also have time to purchase souvenirs in the gift shop, including traditional Maori carvings. At Te Puia's Maori Arts & Crafts Institute, where for the past 45 years visitors have enjoyed this unique journey into the Maori's rich heritage, their mission is all about preserving the ancient skills and rich culture of the Maori. To that end, young people from across New Zealand are selected as apprentices. Here, the students learn skills ranging from carving to weaving, along with creating flax skirts and patterned bodices, and you will see all this at close hand.

    Tour the movie set where much of the blockbuster “Lord of the Rings” trilogy was filmed and visit many of the famed landmarks that appeared in the movies and books.


    Drive inland towards Matamata, taking in the bucolic scenery of the emerald-green Waikato region along the way. The land is exceptionally fertile and much of it is devoted to private farms.


    In time, you will arrive at a sheep and cattle farm in Hobbiton, whose terrain was altered in the late 1990s to accommodate filming for the “Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy. Dozens of hobbit holes were created, bridges and buildings were constructed, and Barberry hedges and trees were planted. It was an enormous undertaking and at the peak of filming, 400 people worked at Hobbiton, a lush setting so unusual that it still looks like a fantasyland.


    While touring the movie set, you will visit the thatched-roof mill, double-arched bridge, Party Tree, and Green Dragon Inn, all of which are well-known to fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy novels and the movies based on them. You might also have your photo taken at the entrance of one of the holes where the merry yet shy, Hobbits lived.


    Afterwards, you will relax over a cup of tea before driving back to the pier.

    Drive to Lake Rotorua where you will board the Lakeland Queen. While cruising the on the lake, enjoy lunch and a unique performance from a Maori cultural group. The Lakeland Queen is a locally built, shallow draft, stern driven vessel - similar to a Mississippi River Boat and ideal for Lake Rotorua's shallow waters.


    Following lunch, you'll travel to Rainbow Springs for a visit. This marvelous park is set in a natural environment of beautiful native bush, trees, plants and flowers, with tranquil crystal-clear waters that flow from subterranean springs. In addition to being home to an impressive collection of Rainbow trout, the Park also houses a vast array of native birds, including the kiwi, New Zealand's national bird. Just one of the many fascinating features of the Park is the Tuatara - New Zealand's living dinosaur, now an endangered species. In addition to the fine displays of nature, Rainbow Springs also serves to preserve New Zealand's national heritage.
