Tour full itinerary

Detailed itinerary: 7 day tour starting in Queenstown

Day 1 - Join your travel companions in Queenstown
AAT Kings 7 Day New Zealand Panorama 22/23 - Day 1
AAT Kings 7 Day New Zealand Panorama

Upon arrival in Queenstown, travel to the faithfully restored gold mining settlement of Arrowtown. As you amble down the beautiful tree-lined avenues, past the 19th century wooden buildings, you will feel like you have stepped into a movie set. Later, you will have free time to explore Queenstown.

Arrival at Queenstown Airport is required before 4 pm on this day.

Your accommodation: Millennium Hotel Queenstown (or similar)

Millennium Hotel Queenstown is located in the heart of Queenstown within minutes of the central shopping and entertainment area.
Day 2 - Queenstown Experience
AAT Kings 7 Day New Zealand Panorama 22/23 - Day 2
Experience Farm life in Queenstown

Arriving in New Zealand, the first thing you probably noticed is that there’s a lot of farmland. It’s fitting, then, that one of the first people you’ll meet is southern girl Laura, who will introduce you to the sheep farm she was born and raised on. Come dusk, cruise across Lake Wakatipu aboard the TSS Earnslaw; the only thing more inspiring than the peaks of the Remarkables that surround is the festive atmosphere welcoming you to Walter Peak High Country Farm, where a gourmet barbecue at the Colonel’s Homestead awaits.

Day 3 - Queenstown at Leisure
AAT Kings 7 Day New Zealand Panorama 22/23 - Day 3
Queenstown

You clearly need more than one day to appreciate Queenstown and its surrounds. And when we say surrounds, we mean Milford Sound. Today, sign up to dive deep into this yawning gorge within World Heritage-listed Fiordland National Park – it’s within easy reach of your base, and is best explored on an optional South Island tour that sees you jumping aboard boat to cruise the mirror-like waterway. Don’t be surprised if you see dolphins and seals playing in the wake of waterfalls. If you like things fast-paced, opt for bungy jumping, jet-boating or sip-lining. You are in the adventure capital of New Zealand, after all.

Your accommodation: Millennium Hotel Queenstown (or similar)

Day 4 - Fly North to Auckland, City of Sails
AAT Kings 7 Day New Zealand Panorama 22/23 - Day 4
Queenstown to Auckland

Touching down in Auckland, you’ll immediately understand why it’s known as the ‘City of Sails’ – New Zealand’s largest city has two lovely yacht-filled harbours, which you can explore at our leisure this afternoon.

Day 5 - See the twinkling Glowworms
AAT Kings 7 Day New Zealand Panorama 22/23 - Day 5
Auckland to Rotorua

Today is set to sparkle – quite literally – as thousands of bright green and blue glowworms light up your next destination: the cavernous Ruakuri Cave at Waitomo. From overhead attractions to those below the ground… this evening your dinner is prepared in an earthen hangi at the Mitai Māori Village. It’s an eye-opening (and tasty) introduction to Māori culture, with musical and dance performances revealing stories passed down through generations.

Rotorua's largest 4 star deluxe hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of the city overlooking Lake Rotorua. Five levels of accommodation offer guests a wide variety of scenic views.

AAT Kings 7 Day New Zealand Panorama 22/23 - Day 6
Rotorua

Cute and cuddly, NZ’s national bird, the kiwi, is also endangered. Go behind the scenes on a working kiwi nursery and hatchery to learn how breeding programs are helping the population thrive. The natural drama reaches boiling point at Whakarewarewa, a geothermal reserve and the country’s only living Māori village, home to famous Pohutu Geyser (the country’s largest) and the bubbling beauty of mud pools.
