Twilight Travel Taranaki Festival of Lights

Christmas Tour: 24th - 28th December 2020 

Our festive tours are focusing on the Taranaki region with the ‘Festival of Lights’ one of the many highlights included in the itinerary. The annual lights event was officially named the Taranaki Festival of Lights in 1993.

Our tour departs from Auckland and travells through the King Country.
