A trip to New Zealand would be incomplete without a trip to the very top of the North Island, Cape Reinga (Te Rerenga Wairua). Discover the untamed grandeur of this vast and pristine country steeped in Maori culture and history. Enjoy a sample of New Zealand’s varied and stunning terrain as you drive north: the rolling hills of Northland’s rural countryside, breath-taking coastline vistas, and native woodland.
As the waves break besides the custom-built coach, drive down the sand on Ninety Mile Beach. Feel the sand under your toes as you assist your driving guide in his search for shellfish (conditions permitting). Your off-road adventure continues along Te Paki Stream, pausing at the vast sand dunes to enjoy the thrills and spills of sand-boarding. Clambering up and surfing down the dunes (if you dare!) will certainly get your pulse rate up.
As you approach Cape Reinga, listen to the stories about this historic spot, where ghosts, according to Maori belief, embark on their voyage home to Hawaiki. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views, see the renowned lighthouse, and witness the spot where the Tasman Sea and the vast Pacific Ocean collide.
During your trip, you will also have a picnic salad lunch in the gorgeous Taputaputa Bay (weather permitting); chicken and falafel choices are available; please specify at the time of purchase.
Your return journey will be as delightful, as your tour guide’s mix of local expertise, broad historical knowledge, and excellent sense of humour creates an amazing adventure.
