Silversea Luxury Cruises À NEW PLYMOUTH

NEW PLYMOUTH

When asked to describe his homeland, (Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit director) Peter Jackson said “New Zealand is not a small country but a large village” and never a truer word was spoken about New Plymouth. Named after Plymouth in England when the first British settlers arrived in 1841, the city is a hybrid of traditions. Treasure, stories and culture fuse perfectly together with coastal walkways, botanic gardens and award winning golf-courses in this bubbly, artsy city. View more

Located in the Taranaki Region on New Zealand’s North Island, New Plymouth has won multiple awards for its positive attitude towards pedestrians and cyclists and community sustainability. Ruled by the great outdoors and more notably Mount Taranaki, this majestic 8261 feet/2,518 metre snow-capped active volcano looms over the city with the ever-present threat of eruption (although the last eruption dates back to 1814), thus making the city and its surroundings a veritable haven for those who love outdoor pursuits. Rising above the clouds, the volcano beckons walkers and those who do make it to the top are compensated with spectacular sea vistas from their privileged position, perched high above the city.

Excursions depuis NEW PLYMOUTH

Egmont National Park & Te Kainga Marire Garden

Discover New Plymouth with a trip to Mt. Taranaki and the Egmont National Park Visitor Centre, experience the lush native forest and admire the stunning views. You will then travel to Te Kainga Marire Garden, an inner city native garden, whose name translates in Maori for "the peaceful encampment".


Egmont National Park

Leave the pier for the short and scenic drive to the iconic peak of Mount Taranaki, stopping to discover the legend of the mountain at the Egmont National Park Visitor Centre, surrounded by lush native bush with stunning views. The Visitor Centre offers comprehensive displays, a small café and retail area, and friendly staff who can help with track and weather information. Take a guided bush walk with an expert local guide, who will explain the history of the mountain, the surrounding national park, and the rich array of native flora and wildlife it is home to. Rest your legs whilst enjoying a morning tea selection of filtered coffee, tea or juice and a selection of savoury and sweet bites.


Te Kainga Marire Garden

Next, make your way to Te Kainga Marire Garden on a comfortable 45-minute drive. Echoing the native theme is Te Kainga Marire - Maori for "the peaceful encampment", one of only five 6-star gardens in New Zealand. The skillfully designed inner-city garden has been hand-crafted from bare land over decades by Valda Poletti and Dave Clarkson, who live amidst the lush ferns, wetland plants, alpine treasures and native trees. Valda will welcome you personally and answer any questions as you meander through this wonderland, a true gem of Middle Earth.


At the end of your visit, re-board your coach for a return drive back to the pier.
