Just because your cruise has ended doesn't mean your adventure has to! Enjoy some time in Auckland before catching your flight back home.
You will be greeted at the Auckland Cruise Terminal and transported to a 4 Star hotel in the heart of the city. Walk around and investigate Auckland at your leisure or just enjoy the amenities at the hotel before settling in for a good night's sleep.
On Day 2 you will travel out to the set of the famous movie Hobbiton. The Shire comes to life as you step onto the largest "green movie set" in the world. Be sure to bring your camera to take photos of several hobbit holes (44 in all), Bilbo's house, the party tree, the Mill and double arched bridge, Bag End, and the Green Dragon Inn. Stop at the Shire Party Marquee and enjoy a themed buffet lunch fit for a hobbit.
From there you will head to Ruakuri Glowworm Caves. Descend down the spiral entrance into a glowing subterranean world full of stunning limestone formations and crystal tapestries. Keep an eye out for hidden waterfalls and rivers in this longest underground cave in New Zealand. Conclude your tour with a scenic ride back to your hotel.
On Day 3 you will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to Auckland Airport for your flight home.
