Day 1 : Arrive Napier

A national disaster resulted in Napier becoming one of the purest Art Deco cities in the world.On the morning of February 3rd 1931 a massive earthquake ­ 7.9 on the Richter scale ­ rocked Hawke’s Bay for more than three minutes. Napier’s city centre has the feeling of a time capsule ­ the seamless line of 1930s architecture is quite extraordinary. One of the ways to enjoy the streetscape is on a self­guided walk.

We will pick you up from the airport and you can spend the day at the local farmers market and then sample some of the famous Pinot Gris and Syrah of the area.
