Detailed Itinerary

On arrival into Auckland, you will be transferred to your city hotel. Enjoy the remainder of the day exploring Auckland, the city of sails. Auckland city centre offers world-class shopping, restaurants, bars and galleries which are encircled by wine regions, stunning beaches, pristine rainforest and the magnificent Hauraki Gulf. This afternoon meet your local tour representative who will provide a tour briefing and confirm tomorrow’s departure details.

Following breakfast, join your group for a morning sightseeing tour of Auckland City. Explore the City’s beautiful waterside setting, travel to the beachside neighbourhoods to the east of the city and take advantage of great views at Bastion Point. In the afternoon, your journey takes you north across the harbour bridge, passing through the North Shore suburbs and the Hibiscus Coast region into the countryside. Continue through farmland towns of Warkworth and Wellsford before arriving into Whangarei, the only city in the far north. From Whangarei, continue to Paihia located in the Bay of Islands. Dinner is included this evening at your hotel.

As you travel north, enjoy New Zealand's varying and beautiful landscape: the rolling hills of Northland's rural countryside, breath-taking coastal views and native forest. Drive along the shores of Ninety Mile Beach as the waves crash beside the custom-built coach. Your off-road journey continues up Te Paki Stream, stopping at the massive sand dunes to experience the thrills and spills of sand surfing. 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. Lunch is also included during your Cape Reinga tour. B,L

This morning enjoy a cruise out into the Islands in search of dolphins and other marine life. You will journey right to the end of the Cape Brett Peninsula, to the famous Hole in the Rock on Motukokako Island. On your return, disembark at the gorgeous waterfront village and our first capital, Russell with time to explore this historic place. Later today, you will visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, our birthplace, for a guided tour to learn about the history, stories, personalities and events that shaped New Zealand. B

Today, return to Auckland via the West Coast. Travel south along the coast where you will stop at the Waipoua Forest for a short walk to view Tāne Mahuta (the Māori God of the Forest) a 2000-year-old living treasure.
