North Island Wine Trail

Vineyard, North Island, New Zealand

Self-drive Holidays

If you’re worried that a North Island Winery Tour might not work quite so well for the driver as the passengers, fear not. This seven-day tour includes three overnight stays at some of New Zealand’s best-loved boutique wine estates. It’s an opportunity to enjoy tasting sessions, gourmet meals and vineyard tours as well as nights under the stars. Coupled with hobbit holes, glow worms and the geothermal features of Rotorua, this has got all the makings of a legendary week away. All you have to do is pick up the keys to your motorhome in Auckland and make your way to Wellington via short daily distances. It’s the perfect balance between freedom to roam, iconic highlights and organised wine tours – and if you’re looking for souvenirs, there’s nothing better than a Sauvignon Blanc from Hawke’s Bay to help you relive the good times.
