We start our trip to the north island after 12 days of traveling on the road around New Zealand’s south island. The first thing in the morning was to go on board to the ferry called Interislander that took us to Wellington in about two hours. After that nice time on the sea, we were on the road again.
We stayed in Wellington a couple of days, visiting the most iconic places around the city. Then we head to Lake Taupo, in our way we stopped in Tongariro National Park to stay the night and in the morning we went up the mountain to visit Mordor!
By afternoon we head to Taupo Lake and its hot pools. We got a great sunset view of the lake were we rest. The next day we walked around and enjoyed the morning swimming in very hot water. We stayed the night on a lovely farm near Matamata.
Next day we drove to Hobbiton, we started the tour very early in the morning. We spend the whole day in the Hobbiton Movie Set at the end of the day we head to Rotorua and we stayed near Okere Falls.
Next day we walk around Okere Falls, we went up the river finding hidden places we spend the morning. Then we head to Rotorua, to learn more about the Māori Culture and its wonders.
By noon we head to Hamilton and stayed the night around that area, next morning we visited the most touristic and iconic places around Hamilton, such as the gardens, the museum, and art gallery.
