Our journey begins with a fantastic tour through Auckland city, passing though and stopping off at various must-see sights. See Auckland Morning Highlights tour description for more details on the first part of our trip.

Following the city tour we visit Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World. This underground visitor attraction enables you to experience something truly unique. Come face to face with species from New Zealand’s waters including sharks, stingrays, turtles and other incredible sea creatures. Enjoy an informative encounter with your favourite animals as the staff give talks and feed them before your very eyes.

The Antarctic Encounter lets you take a peak inside New Zealand’s only colony of Arctic penguins. Come within arms length of the 80 plus colony as you travel on a fantastic snowcat ride. See live penguins gracefully swimming underwater and going about their days in a sub-Antarctic snow and ice domain setting.

There is also a replica of Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic hut, decorated with authentic memorabilia. Walking through will take you back 100 years to see what it was like living in Antarctica, the coldest place on earth!
