What They Asked For...

This couple is in their 30's and had an incredibly busy year with multiple weddings (including their own) and moving two times before August. Much to their delight, they also found out they were expecting their first child. 

They wanted a slow holiday to relax and reconnect with each other before the little nugget arrives and wanted a more romantic, foodie and cultural trip.

The Brief:

  • 7-10 days

  • Flying in-and-out of Auckland

  • Relaxing and remote locations

  • Lots of nature 

  • Small walks but nothing too strenuous

  • Romantic

  • Love food

  • Really wanted time with each other

  • Wanted to do the Northern Explorer

  • A budget of $5000

  • Interested in the culture

  • Preferred to keep it to the North Island

What They Got...

This is their Google My Map Route Plan based on their desires. 

I factored in their desire to catch the Northern Explorer by having them leave from Auckland and catch the train down to National Park. This would mean they could stay at Tongariro for a few nights to see some nature, do some of the short walks and have a more remote and romantic experience at the Tongariro Chateau.

From here we moved back up towards Auckland in a loop via Taupo, Rotorua and Coromandel taking a few days out at all giving them a lot of time to relax and take in the sights and magnificence which this whole region encompasses. This also gave them a variety of natural experiences, from mountains and lakes to beaches and forests.

You can see below on the table, a more detailed overview of their itinerary.
