Aotea Roadies offer great one day tours and overnight adventures
Kia ora and welcome to the website of Aotea Roadies!
We are a kiwi owned company, operated by long time locals. We offer day trips from Auckland along with overnight adventures to popular as well as intrepid destinations within a few hours from Auckland city. Aotea Roadies has evolved from a passion for exploring the back roads as well as the well trodden trails which define this unique corner of the world.
Our favourite destinations are often well kept secrets away from the usual tourist routes.
Join us on one of our one day tours to some of our favourite regions around and outside of Auckland's city fringes, or on an overnight journey a little further afield. We also offer a ‘Personalised Roadie’ for up to 10 people to create your own tailored road trip tour experience.
Your tour begins from your accommodation in the central Auckland CBD region, or alternatively you may arrange to meet us at the historic Ferry Building clock tower at 1010 Quay Street in Auckland city. Drop off can be anywhere in the inner city or perhaps the airport! Check with us and we will see what we can do.
And keep an eye on our ‘Special Event Roadies’ page to see what adventures we have in the pipeline. Could be anything from a fishing trip to a food and wine festival and everything in between.
