Journey to the ‘Winterless North’ where you’ll find the beautiful Bay of Islands; 144 islands with spectacular undeveloped beaches. Fish, sail, swim with dolphins or simply relax!
Auckland to Paihia (Bay of Islands)
Arrive in the Bay of Islands around midday and check out the sights surrounding Paihia, including the historical location of Waitangi. Northland is rich in history and Maori culture and with its clear water, huge kauri forests, and 144 islands to explore you will soon see why Kiwi Experience heads up north. Swim with the dolphins, experience the Excitor Fast Boat, ride out to the famous hole in the rock, or go kayaking, fishing, sailing, diving, snorkelling, or just relax on the beach!
Paihia to Cape Reinga to Paihia
Be prepared for an action packed day up to Cape Reinga. This area is sacred to the Maori people and the day trip to Cape Reinga is not to be missed! The day is full of walks and free activities. Drive along 90 Mile Beach, see huge kauri trees, body board down the gigantic sand dunes, view the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean clashing, gather shellfish on the beach, and experience one of New Zealand’s best fish ‘n’ chip shops.
Paihia to Auckland
Squeeze in those activities you haven’t completed yet before heading back to Auckland
Departing late afternoon, you have the best part of the day to experience one of the many activities on offer in the Bay, or simply chill on the beach. The drive back to Auckland is relaxed and you’ll be back in the city in time to find some dinner and hit the town.
