Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach Day Tour
- PaihiaPrice: Starting from NZ $149.00 per adult
A visit to New Zealand is not complete without a journey to the top of the North Island - Cape Reinga (Te Rerenga Wairua). Uncover the wild beauty of this vast and untouched region that is rich in Maori culture and tradition.Your driver guide also doubles as a story teller, sharing the stories of this significant site where, according to Maori legend, spirits depart on their journey home to Hawaiki. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views, visit the iconic light house, and see the point where the Tasman Sea and the mighty Pacific Ocean come crashing together.
Ninety Mile Beach is another highlight of the tour - you'll drive along the sand as waves crash beside the custom-built coach. Feel the sand between your toes as you help your driver guide dig for shellfish (conditions permitting). Don't be alarmed when your driver takes the bus up Te Paki Stream towards the mountainous sand dunes, it's all part of the off-road experience. Clambering up then sand-boarding down the enormous dunes (if you dare!) will give your legs a stretch after the first part of the tour and get your heart pumping with excitement.
As you travel north, enjoy a taste of New Zealand's varying and beautiful landscape. The trip showcases the rolling hills of Northland's rural countryside, breath-taking coastal views and native forest. During your journey you'll visit Puketi Kauri Forest, where you'll get up close to ancient and majestic giant kauri trees and native bush. Take a short walk along an elevated walkway and learn about the traditional uses of these graceful giants, and about conservation efforts to preserve the forest today.
Your journey back to the Bay of Islands 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.
