Overview

A visit to New Zealand is not complete without a journey to the very top of the North Island – Cape Reinga (Te Rerenga Wairua). Uncover the wild beauty of this vast and untouched region, rich in Māori culture and tradition, on an action-packed full day return tour from Paihia or Kerikeri.

 

Tour description

As you travel north, enjoy a taste of New Zealand's varying and beautiful landscape: the rolling hills of Northland's rural countryside, breath-taking coastal views and native forest.

Highlights
Ninety Mile Beach 
Sand surfing at Te Paki Stream
Cape Reinga - New Zealand's northernmost point
Historic commentary and Māori legend
Includes lunch

Drive along the shores of Ninety Mile Beach as the waves crash beside the custom-built coach. Feel the sand between your toes and the salt spray on your face. Your off-road journey continues up Te Paki Stream, stopping at the massive sand dunes where you can experience the thrills and spills of sand surfing. Clambering up and surfing down the dunes (if you dare!) is sure to get your heart pumping.

Visit Cape Reinga and hear the stories of this significant site where, according to Māori legend, spirits depart on their journey home to Hawaiki. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views, visit the iconic lighthouse, and see the point where the Tasman Sea and the mighty Pacific Ocean come crashing together.

This tour also includes a delicious locally-prepared lunch to keep you fuelled for a day of adventure. A vegetarian option is available and can be selected when booking.

Your journey home will be equally enjoyable as your tour guide's combination of local insight, extensive historical knowledge and fantastic sense of humour create an unforgettable adventure.

Reviews

"Our day trip today was made even more special by our driver - he gave such an awesome commentary to us on the way up and the way back. He was informative and knowledgeable and drove superbly so that at no stage did I feel worried. This was a great trip and worth every single dollar that we paid. Our lunch was lovely and the stops were at beautiful places."

An awesome day trip!

"Great day out. Learned so much about NZ History and info about the places we visited. Great storyteller! Bus was comfortable with WiFi and USB chargers. Lots to see and do. Lunch included which was delish. An early start but well worth doing a tour than trying to drive yourself."
