You’ve got your home life, and home friends...and home routine. But this is your chance to leave it all behind. Ready? Meet us in Auckland and say kia ora to your fellow Topdeckers. First stop on our Kiwi adventure: Waitomo Caves. A glowworm-studded labyrinth of underground caves and rivers – this place is like something out of a sci-fi movie. Spend your free time exploring Ruakuri Cave on foot. Cruising through the magical grotto. Or strap in for a unique blackwater rafting experience (disclaimer: you’re gonna get wet). Later, we’ll receive a traditional welcome at the marae (Maori meeting ground) and will tuck into a hangi with the gang. Hear local Maori stories and learn the meaning of whanau as we bunk down in this sacred ancestral meeting place. This is as authentic as it gets.

To say Rotorua has it 'going on' would be the understatement of the century. We're talking: adrenalin-pumping activities, geothermal spas and nerd-central movie sets. And you've got 24hrs to embrace it all. For the LOTR fans (or closet fans), take a walk through Tolkien's dreams at the Hobbiton movie set. Adrenalin junkie? Get your hit on a rapid ride down the mighty Kaituna River. Play Tarzan on a sky-high canopy tour. Or race your trip mates inside a giant Zorb ball (when in NZ, right?). And for you thrill-dodgers, slap on a thermal mud mask and soak up allll the healing properties of Rotorua's sulphur spas. Locals have been using them for over 800 years, so it's gotta have some benefits. Tonight is up to you, so gather the gang and compare today's thrills and spills at one of the local haunts in town.

Before we make tracks today, there’s a steamy visit to the geothermal valley of Te Puia on the cards. We’ll check out Pohutu (think: poor-hoo-too) – the largest geyser in the Southern Hemisphere and tuck into a traditional hangi lunch with the gang. Then: we’ll make a stop at roaring Huka Falls and play spot-the-extreme-kayaker as they tackle the immense 11-metre plunge down the canyon falls. Finally, we’ll take in the A-Mazing views over Lake Taupo before putting our feet up at our accommodation near Tongariro National Park. What. A. Day. Dinner tonight is on us, so pile up your plate – you’re gonna need it for what’s in store for tomorrow.

Dramatic volcanic peaks dominating the horizon. Rugged terrain that looks like you landed on Mars. And intense turquoise lakes gathered in steep valleys. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is one of the best one-day hikes in the world – and it 100% deserves the rep. You’ve got a full day to find your Samwise up Mt Ngauruhoe (aka Mt Doom), soak up all the I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E views and wish you’d broken in those new hiking boots. If four-wheeled adventuring is more your style – there’s a quad biking excursion on the cards too. Back at base camp, sit back and enjoy the serenity with a cold beverage. You’ve earnt it!

Next up: Wellington. Get your bearings around the capital on an orientation tour before we head to Mt Victoria for 360-degree views over the harbour. Then: the rest is up to you. Get your Middle Earth fix at the Weta Workshop. Head to the MAC's Brewbar on the waterfront. Or catch a free tour of parliament. Tonight, dinner is up to you - but with more bars and restaurants per capita than New York, you're not going to be stuck for options. Trust us.

You wanted more free time to delve deeper – so this is your chance. Get lost amongst the incredible exhibitions at the Te Papa museum. Take the cable car up to the Botanic Gardens. Grab brunch along Cuba Street. Soak up some rays at Scorching Bay. Get your sugar fix with a Snickers milkshake at Fidel’s Cafe. And spot a kiwi bird (or two) at the Zealandia ecological sanctuary. Tonight: gather the gang, grab some fresh ‘fush and chups’ from The Chippery and head down to the harbour for dinner-with-a-view. This is livin’.

Wave goodbye to the North Island – we’re heading across the Cook Strait into the gob-smackingly beautiful Marlborough Sounds. Sounds familiar? Chances are you’ve picked up a bottle (or two) of Savvie B from this region. And after docking in picturesque Picton, we’ll get a chance to sample a drop of the good stuff at a local cellar door. Onwards to Nelson! Home of Pic’s Peanut Butter World and some of New Zealand’s most pristine beaches. Settle into our idyllic beach-side accommodation – then a delicious group dinner is on the menu tonight.

Free day = your chance to do your own spontaneous this-is-what-I-came-here-for thing. Ever heard of the Abel Tasman National Park? Think: golden sandy beaches. Picturesque turquoise bays. Lush native forests. And cute locals (of the wildlife-kind). Hire a kayak and head out solo. Jump aboard a water taxi and go bay-hopping. Hit the trails and explore on foot. Or let the experts take the lead on a full-day guided tour. Feeling extra? Take in allll the views with a spine-tingling 16,500ft skydive. Tonight, get the gang together for a mean chicken parmi at Smugglers or take a stroll along Tahuna Beach at sunset. This is your moment.

From one stunning coastline to another – we’re making tracks to the East Coast today. Spot the wild fur seals getting their tan on as we roll into B-E-A-Utiful Kaikoura. Then? Channel your inner Little Mermaid on an optional swim with the local dusky dolphins. Or watch their acrobatics from above deck – they’re total show offs. Later: soak up the laid back atmosphere in town, take a hike around the peninsula for sunset or get your butt down to one of the seafood caravans on the foreshore for some fresher-than-fresh crayfish. Fact: Kaikoura literally translates to ‘eat crayfish’ – so you know it’s gonna be good.

Next stop: the South Island's largest city. After having most of the CBD demolished by a devastating earthquake in 2011, the city has rebuilt itself into a VIBING hub of quirky bars, restaurants and cafes. After getting the run-about-town with our Trip Leader, you’ll have the rest of the afternoon off to do whatever you want. Need some suggestions? Head to Little High Eatery: a hip marketplace full of locally run food trucks. After, gather the gang and head to Rockpool for pool tables and a pumping d-floor.

One minute you’re sipping lattes in the city, ‘nek minnit’ you’re off to one of New Zealand’s most famous glaciers. But first: a stop at historic Hokitika. Head to the beach and find the quirky sculpture made by the locals. Buy a pounamu (greenstone) for good luck. And give ‘mountain oysters’ a try (hint: Google it first). We’ll make a photo stop at Lake Matheson to make your friends back home jealous AF – before rolling into the jaw-dropping Franz Josef Glacier region. After grabbing dinner in town, you could seek out the resident glow worms on an after-dark adventure – just ask your in-the-know Trip Leader.

Rise and shine! If the weather is good, you'll have the chance to explore this chilly playground on an optional Heli-hike. Strap on your crampons and pile into the chopper - we'll head up to 800m above sea level to explore the maze of ice formations with an expert local guide. Or go all-out with a scenic flight that'll leave you with goosebumps and a full camera roll. Then: we'll turn our attention to the adventure capital of the world. Get the lay of the land with your Trip Leader, then spend the rest of the afternoon wandering around the bay area or holed up in World Bar - with world-famous teapot cocktails, it's the perfect spot to make a plan for next three days.

f Queenstown had a Tinder profile it would read: fun-filled outdoor enthusiast – looking for a fellow adrenalin junkie to share adventures with. And be filled with pics of people throwing themselves off extreme heights. Swiping right? Hell yes! Skydiving. Bungy jumping. Jet boating. White water rafting. Canyon swinging. You want it, this place has it. And you’ve got 24hrs to embrace it all. DW if all the above makes you want to run and hide – there’s more here than death-defying antics. Take the skyline gondola for some incred views over Lake Wakatipu. Race your Topdeck buddies on the sky-high luge track. Jump aboard the TSS Earnslaw for a scenic cruise. Or strap on those Nikes and hike the Ben Lomond Saddle Loop – the views are worth the sore legs in the morning. Trust us. Tonight, head to Winnies and tuck into pizzas with toppings you can’t prepare for – they’re that good.

Today, we’ll take a break from all the high-octane screaming with a day trip to the mesmerising Milford Sound. Plaster your face to the window as we take the scenic route through Fiordland National Park. Then, the main event: a cruise on the Milford fjord complete with thundering waterfalls, razor-edge cliffs and resident seals. This place is National Geographic on steroids (like Schwarzenegger steroids). Tuck into lunch on board surrounded by a view you’ll tell your children ( or 12 cats) about for years to come. Then, back in Queenstown – gather the gang and see if the nightlife here really lives up to the rep.

Didn’t tick everything off? We’ve got your back – here’s another free day we prepared earlier. Head into Mount Aspiring National Park on a Wilderness Jet adventure. Jump in a funyak down the Dart River (like a kayak, but better). Or conquer the wild Shotover River on an adrenalin-pumping whitewater rafting experience. If you’d rather cruise in the slow-lane, sip your way through the Otago region on a wine tour or get your Fergburger take-away and head up to Queenstown Gardens for stunning views over The Remarkables. Tonight, we’ll get the gang together for an included dinner. Then? Head to the Cookie Bar. We’re talking: warm cookies, freakshakes, s’more, ice-cream...*wipes drool from chin*.

Ok, nobody panic – the adventure is coming to a close. But we’re sure as hell not done yet! Set the course for Arrowtown and stretch out those calves – there’s a cycle along the banks of the historic Arrow River in store for today. Venture through some ‘holy-sh*t’-worthy scenery, cross awe-inspiring suspension bridges and try not to stack it in front of your trip mates. Then: press your nose to the window and soak up all the stunning views racing past the coach window as we make our way to our lakeside-lodge for the night. Nestled between towering mountains and overlooking the sparkling lake, this is the perfect place to spend the last night of our Kiwi encounter. We’re gonna give this trip the send-off it deserves at tonight’s final group dinner.

Squeeze in one last pano at Lake Tekapo before we make tracks for Christchurch. 17 days. 2 islands. 1 country. Countless thrills, spills and good times. One HUGE adventure. You embraced it all and shared the ride with a bunch of strangers who are now like family. But it’s time to say goodbye. Reunion trip next year? 100%.

Say kia ora to your new Topdeck trip mates in Auckland and get ready for an epic trip! En route to Rotorua we’ll swing by the Waitomo Caves – a glowworm-studded labyrinth of underground caves and rivers. This place is like something out of a sci-fi movie! Choose to explore on foot, by boat or brave the cold on a unique blackwater rafting experience (trust us, it’s awesome). Later, we’ll learn some Haka moves and watch a Poi dance before tucking into a delicious dinner at a traditional marae (Maori meeting ground).

Are you ready for all the optional extras your free day has to offer? Take a walk through Tolkien’s dreams at the Hobbiton movie set or head to a geothermal reserve for a relaxing mud spa. For the thrill-seekers, there’s Zorbing on offer here too (think: rolling downhill in a giant inflatable ball) – or you could always hit the water for a spot of rafting. When in New Zealand!

Crank the heat up to the max – today we’re off to check out the area’s famous geothermal activity on an included tour. This experience comes complete with a traditional Hangi lunch – a meal of roasted meat and veggies slowly cooked in an underground oven pit. After catching a glimpse of a Kiwi bird or two, we’ll make tracks to Huka Falls (you’ll hear the rumble before you see them). Finally, we’ll swing by beautiful Lake Taupo before settling in at our accommodation near Tongariro National Park. Phew! What. A. Day.

Rise and shine – we’ve got exploring to do! Known as one of the best one-day hikes in the world, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing sure lives up to its reputation – and you’ll get the chance to complete it today (weather dependent). With three volcanic peaks dominating the horizon and terrain that’ll make you feel like you’re on Mars, this hike is 100% worth the sore legs the next day. Rather have yourself a four-wheeled adventure? There’s an optional quad biking experience on offer, if you’re interested. Let’s do this!

Next up: Wellington. Get your bearings as we head to Mt Victoria for 360-degree city, harbour and ocean views. Lord of the Rings fan? Pro tip: check out the Weta Workshop for maximum Middle Earth vibes this afternoon.

Free days are the best days. Get lost in the awesome Te Papa museum or hit up Cuba Street for some quirky stores and cafés. Don't miss the nightlife in the capital either! With more bars and restaurants per capita than New York, there's no excuse not to hit the town with the crew tonight...

Today we’ll wave goodbye to the North Island as we take a ferry across Cook Strait and into the blue waters of Marlborough Sound. Hop off in picturesque Picton, then get ready to find out why the Marlborough region is so famous for its wine. We’ll stop by a Cellar Door for an included tasting of the sweet stuff before digging into a delicious BBQ dinner in Nelson tonight.

Did someone say coastal paradise? Today is yours to explore this vibrant region. Hop from bay to bay via boat, sea kayak, on foot or see it all from above with an epic skydive. Whatever you choose, we know you’re going to love it!

From one coastal town to another. Spot the wild fur seals getting their tan on as we roll into Kaikoura today. And this afternoon? Channel all those mermaid/man vibes on an optional dolphin swim, or take in the wild acrobatics from above deck – these little critters love to put on a show! Then: soak up the laid back atmosphere, take a short stroll to the beach for sunset and maybe visit a local bayside vendor for the freshest of crayfish (Kaikoura literally translates to ‘eat crayfish’). This is livin’.

Next stop: the South Island's largest city. After being hit by an earthquake in 2011, resilient Christchuch is rebuilding in a creative way. Tonight, the city is yours. Why not get out there and check out the vibrant restaurant scene?

One minute you’re sipping lattes in the city, nek minnit you’re off to visit New Zealand’s most famous glacier. But first: a photo stop at Lake Matheson that will make all your friends back home totally jealous. Sorry, not sorry.

Who’s ready to hit the ice? If the weather is good, you’ll have the chance to explore this chilly playground on a heli hike. Alternatively, you could go all-out and get a bird’s eye view on a scenic flight. Then: the adventuring continues as we roll into the adrenalin capital of NZ – Queenstown. Get your bearings on an orientation tour, then be free! The nightlife here is on a whole other level. Ice Bar, anyone?

Ready. Set. GO! Queenstown is loaded with adventure activities – and you’ve got two days to cram them all in! For the thrill seekers: choose from bungy jumping, jet boating, canyon swinging, skydiving or zip lining. Doesn’t sound like your thing? Take the skyline gondola for some incred views over Lake Wakatipu. There’s even a sky-high luge track to challenge your Topdeck buddies on. It’s on! Tonight, why not hit up Fergburger for a meal that will haunt your dreams? Yep, it’s that good!

Plaster your face to the window as we take the scenic route to Milford Sound for today’s main event: a cruise on the fjord, complete with thundering waterfalls and towering cliffs that will just blow your mind. Keep your eyes peeled for the resident seals and dolphins, too!

Quick! It’s your last day here. Our hot tip: sign up for some whitewater rafting on the Shotover River, or jump in a funyak (like kayaking, but better). Hungry after all of that adventuring? You’re in luck. We have an included dinner tonight at one of Queenstown’s most popular hangouts!

We’ve got an epic two-wheeled excursion in Arrowtown on the agenda today – so get ready to tone those thighs as we cycle along the banks of the Arrow River, crossing some OMG-worthy suspension bridges along the way. Later, take in all the pretty window views before hunkering down at our lodge for the night. Nestled between towering mountains and overlooking the sparkling lake, this is the perfect place to relax and recharge after a hectic few days. Clink glasses with your #Topdeckfam tonight over one last group dinner. It’s going to get emosh...

It may be our last day, but there’s still plenty of time to squeeze in one last pano at Lake Tekapo before we head back to Christchurch. We’ll say our goodbyes after an orientation tour of the city. *sad face* With so much to see here, we wouldn’t blame you for wanting to stick around, though!

And so the journey begins! The Canterbury Plains make for pretty window views today – but we’ll be in mountain territory in no time. En route to Fox Glacier we’ll make a pit stop by the stunning Lake Matheson. Fingers crossed for good weather so you can see New Zealand’s two tallest mountain peaks reflected in the mirror-like lake!
