Amazing Bus Ride Through New Zealand!

I am so glad I decided to travel by bus instead of plane in New Zealand. Riding the bus through the countryside on the North Island was nothing short of amazing! Yes, it takes a few hours, but the time flew by as I enjoyed the green hills scattered with sheep, and the “quirky” truck stops along the way.

I travelled Wellington-Rotorua-Auckland on InterCity ( There are plenty of stops to get food and drinks, use the restrooms and get some nice photos. The bus from Rotorua to Auckland got pretty full after a while on the road, but the bus from Wellington to Rotorua was never more than 1/3 full. And if possible, book well in advance. I paid 1 NZD for Rotorua-Auckland…

  1. Yes, sometimes I prefer taking a road trip – I think you get to see much more of the countryside and what a place is really about! Thanks for linking up with #MondayEscapes
