On the 12-day Bucket List guided walk, we’ll stay in a variety of boutique and character lodges & hotels, mostly 3-star rated or higher accommodation with ensuites, which have been chosen for their amazing locations and relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are twin-share with comfy beds and crisp linens. You’ll have an ensuite room for each of the 11 nights of the trip.

Between each leg of the trip (night 4 and night 8), you’ll stay the night at a 4.5 star, historic hotel in central Rotorua within walking distance of Government Gardens and EAT St, Rotoruas’ main dining precinct.

Not all rooms are the same, so if you have specific room requirements, please get in touch with our reservations team to secure the best room for your needs.

Laundry Services

Laundry services aren’t available during the Bucket List Walk. We recommend packing enough items to last the 12 days or arranging for laundry to be done in Rotorua City prior to departure.

Power Points

Power points are available in your room on each leg of this walk. If you travel with a CPAP machine, please let us know and we can set you up with a room where power points are located within easy reach.


Air-conditioning is not available at each location. The rooms at our Coromandel location have heating appliances, but no cooling. At Lake Waikaremoana we’ll have both heating and cooling amenities and in Tongariro National Park we’ll have heating, but no cooling.


You’ll have a small refrigerator in your room for each of the 3 legs of this walk, so if you carry medication that requires refrigeration you’ll have access to this within your room.
