TOURENFAHRER on tour: Abenteuer Neuseeland

Dienstag, 10. Dezember 2019 | Thomas Ritt / Holger Homann | Pazifik

Day 15: Around the Coromandel to Auckland

Highlight of this tour's last riding day: the stunning Coromandel Peninsula. An outstanding road, great views, and, to top it all off, New Zealand's best Fish&Chips for lunch. What better way to end an amazing tour?

Tom and Sabine on Coromandel
An impressive Kauri tree...
...and our dinner right on top of Auckland!
And Timo found an Edelweiss

Day 14: Waitomo Caves to Thames

Today we drove to the west shore, stopped at the Marokopa waterfall and continued on a gravel road to Raglan, the surfer spot in New Zealand. Later we were hunt by a thunderstorm and we flew thru the landscape with strong winds and gusts. We made it finally to Thames without a single drop of rain. We parked the motorcycles in front of the hotel and it started to rain. THAT is timing )

Day 13: Wanganui to Waitomo Caves

Mt. Taranaki as we should have seen it. But we haven't.
Better weather along the Forgotten World Highway. Those 140 kms of curves will never be forgotten.
without words
Exiting the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves

Day 11: Napier to Rotorua

Today we target 345km in total with a gravel section of about 100km through the isolated Te-Urewa (formerly a national park now registered as a personhood) rainforest...just nature, small roads and us.

But see yourself...
