What is Minimum Travel Time?

The days indicate the time it would take to complete the pass if you stayed on the bus and did not hop-off. All passes can be completed in a shorter time simply by hopping-off before the scheduled end point. Across the winter months, we sometimes reduce our weekly departures which may affect these timings. Be sure to check out the latest timetables on our website or speak to our Reservations Team.

About this experience

Make a bee-line for the city of sails on this quick South to North pass. The Queen Bee starts off in stunning Queenstown and takes you right up to Auckland on a minimum travel time of just 9 days. Take in all the stunning South along the east coast before cruising through rugged North Island terrain, rolling farm lands and ancient volcanoes.

This pass is perfect to jump off if you want to spend a little extra time in hot locations. There is plenty to do in New Zealand’s cultural capital before your final leg to Auckland. Travel from Wellington to Taupo in time to meet our mates at Skydive Taupo, or relax with an evening cruise on Lake Taupo. Hop off in Taupo if you are keen to climb the epic Tongariro Crossing. Your Driver Guide will book this in for you.
