Day by Day Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive in Napier

On arrival, make your way to your accommodation. The rest of today is at leisure to enjoy the local sights.

Day 2
Napier - Sightseeing

Today’s sightseeing includes a safari to the spectacular Cape Kidnappers gannet colony and a locally guided Art-Deco walking tour.

You’ll be collected from your hotel and driven along the scenic coast road to Te Awanga. Here you join your 4×4 vehicle and travel through Cape Kidnappers Station traversing riverbeds, rolling pastures, through strands of native bush, steep gullies and breathtaking inclines.

Enjoy panoramic views of Hawke’s Bay across to the Mahia Peninsula en route to Cape Kidnappers, the largest mainland gannet colony in the world. The 20,000 gannets are members of the Booby family and you will be able to get up with a few feet of these amazing birds viewing them while they are nesting and carrying out their daily routine.

Following the 4×4 tour, you will be taken on a guided walking tour of the Art Deco city of Napier. The city was levelled by a major earthquake and fire in 1931. Rebuilt in the styles of the thirties – Spanish Mission, Stripped Classical and Art Deco.

The result was a unique collection of buildings rivalled only by the Art Deco district of Miami. Your local guide will bring this fascinating architecture to life through an informative and entertaining commentary as you take an easy stroll through the compact Art deco Quarter in the vibrant city centre.

Day 3
Napier - Sightseeing

Afternoon tour of visiting some of the region’s best vineyards and wineries. Often regarded as the ‘Tuscany of the South Pacific’, no visit to Hawke’s Bay is complete without visiting some of the oldest and leading wineries in New Zealand.

Enjoy a fun-filled afternoon tour with a local wine expert and like-minded travellers, visiting up to 5 vineyards, tasting many varieties including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Syrah as well as some of the lesser known aromatic wines.
