If you are arriving off a cruise ship at Waitangi or Paihia, you will be picked up from the tender port at a time that suits, with no need to wait for other groups. If you are staying in Paihia you will be picked up from your accommodation at 10am.

Your day begins with a short drive to the seaside port of Opua for an introduction to the history, culture of the area and a spectacular viewpoint. Next travel along the first of your tour’s unsealed roads to reach the Opua Forest, with the Jeep’s off-road capabilities providing a safe and comfortable ride. Here a 20-minute walk along a well formed trail to a raised platform gets you a tree level view of your first magnificent kauri tree.

Passing the historic site of Pakaraka and through Ohaeawai township takes you to another unsealed road, past working farmland, native bush and sweeping rural views to arrive at the subtropical rain forest of Puketi. Here you can get up close and personal with more ancient kauri trees along a short boardwalk through the forest. More unsealed roads will get you to the quaint village of Kaeo for a stroll around the town. If you have chosen the Winery Lunch option you will then arrive at one of Northland's premier vineyards where you will be treated to wine tasting and a sumptuous meal. (If you have not chosen the lunch option food can be purchased at a quirky cafe in Kaeo)

After lunch you will travel down the Waitangi Valley, past dormant volcanic cones and a working quarry, to reach the horseshoe-shaped Haruru Falls. A short drive up take you to a viewpoint above Waitangi for a last photo stop overlooking the cruise ship anchorage in the inner Bay of Islands. Your personal Jeep tour finishes back where you started, or you can end your tour at the Paihia wharf and explore the seaside town. On cruise ship days there are free shuttle buses to the tender port, making it easy for you to get back to your ship.
