Day by Day Tour Itinerary
Welcome to Auckland! Pass through customs, collect any baggage and be met by one of our friendly representatives, ready to whisk you away to your city accommodation. After checking in and getting yourself settled, turn your roving eye outside and enjoy a free afternoon in the City of Sails. Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, with plenty of sights, shopping and street appeal for even the pickiest of travellers.
This morning you will depart from central Auckland travelling north through spectacular scenery of native forests and sub-tropical bush to the foreshores of the National Maritime Park. On arrival at the small seaside township of Paihia in the Bay of Islands, you will visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds for a unique insight into New Zealand’s early history. (2 nights)
Depart Paihia on your journey to Cape Reinga, the most northern point of New Zealand. Maori legend states spirits depart from this point on their journey to their final resting place. Enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk past the 1,000 year old Kauri trees in the Puketi Kauri forest and an amazing drive along Ninety Mile Beach. If you are feeling adventurous you might like to participate in sandboarding down the sand dunes at Te Paki Stream. Return to Paihia in the evening. Lunch is included. (L)
Enjoy the view on board your cruise past the Cape Brett Lighthouse en-route to the stunning Hole in the Rock. Common and bottlenose dolphins, whales as well as other marine life are frequently sighted from the outdoor viewing decks.
