We spend two days exploring the Coromandel Peninsula, famous for breath taking beaches, lush forests and historic mining towns. Highlights include Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove and Hahei marine reserve, Driving Creek railway, Miranda Hot Pools and much more.
From your arranged pick up point we flee the city and head eastward towards the Coromandel Peninsula. Along the way we will stop to enjoy the markets and ambience of the historic mining town of Thames before winding our way along the inner coast road with views to the Hauraki Gulf and towards the famous gold mining town of Coromandel.
Here we can enjoy the delights of Coromandel town and experience the famous Driving Creek narrow guage railway for a scenic meander through the Coromandel Bush. We have the opportunity to visit a fully operational 100 year old stamper battery before we traverse through the Coromandel ranges to meet the stunning eastern coast of the peninsula where we find our boutique accommodation within minutes of the stunning Coromandel coastline at Hahei.
For those still with energy to burn, we catch the ferry at Cooks beach for dinner and a night on the town in Whitianga.
Our day starts (for those brave enough) with a hearty kiwi style brekky prepared by your very talented crew or you may prefer kayaking to Cathedral Coveat sunrise. Either way we are on the doorstep of two of the Coromandel’s most stunning destinations and we will spend the morning enjoying this region.
Our visit to Hot water beach is planned around the tides so that we can enjoy the bubbling thermal outlets at their best. On our way home we stop for a more indulgent soak at the Miranda hot springs before we return you to your drop off point in Auckland City.
