We're spending the night at Hahei Beach after a day of kayaking and exploring Cathedral Cove, plus hanging out at real Kiwi barbecue in the evening.
The trip between beaches includes hiking around Mt Karioi and exploring the surrounding waterfalls. Bonus points if we can spot some glow worms.
A Wharenui is the Maori traditional meeting house where we'll spend the night there after watching (and participating in) a Kapa Haka and wake up to breakfast in the morning.
A guided hike through the forest with a Maori guide plus we're staying at a lakefront lodge, possibly our fanciest accomodations of the trip.
We'll be visiting Blue Duck Station, which is both a working farm and an environmental conservation leader. Maybe we'll take a horseback ride ( Deanne) , or kayaking (Jeffrey)
We'll head to Tongariro National Park where there are active volcanoes to explore. After spending the day hiking we'll relax our tired muscles at the spa.
We've heard great things about the Japanese pancake/omletes/pizza in Hiroshima. We can't wait to check it out.
Not sure what activity looks best? No worries. Gifts to fund our honeymoon in general will be put to good use and we'll be sure to send you a picture of what shenanigans you helped us get up to.
