Day 1

Auckland – The Fellowship Begins

Volcanic cones rise out of the waters of the Hauraki Gulf, and the rainforest spreads across the rolling landscape outside of the city of Auckland. Quests and exploration, perfect for the Wizard in everyone. Sailboats glide along the Pacific Ocean, and the sunlight glints off the soaring figure of the Sky Tower, the prominent 1,075-foot tall tower at the heart of the city. Your private transfer greets you at Auckland Airport and escorts you to the luxurious boutique accommodation of Hotel DeBrett in downtown. The comforts of the hotel include a glass-roofed atrium, distinctive rooms with views to the surrounding city, and bustling restaurant area in which locals and visitors from around the world gather, a though meeting to form a world-changing partnership.

After settling into the comforts of your accommodation, you meet you guide to begin an introductory tour of Auckland's vibrant streets and the surrounding captivating landscape. The natural waters of Waitemata Harbour divide Auckland in two, dominated by the iconic arch of Auckland Harbour Bridge. The structure was erected in the 1950s, reaching over half a mile long, and situated at more than 140 feet above the waterway. The scent of the sea is prevalent. Your guide points to the center of the bridge’s arch, beneath which you can see a courageous individual bungee jumping from the platform.

The woman stretches out her arms like a hero reaching towards the water, plunging more than 130 feet with views of the city on the banks and the rushing seawater of the harbor below. You continue to the waterside suburb of Devonport. The scent of freshly battered and fried fish emanates from the fish and chips shop. Antique shops line the street beside book rising above the stores and cafes serving rich coffees. You can see the peak of Mount Victoria rising over the 285 feet above the neighborhood streets. Your introduction to Auckland embodies the beauty of New Zealand’s landscape and warm welcomes offered by the locals, reminding you of how the Fellowship in the Lord of the Rings first bonded.
