Join us on this short tour, showcasing the best of the “Top of the North”.
Stunning scenery, golden beaches, and year-round warm weather, it is easy to see why this is one of New Zealand’s most popular regions to visit.
Packed full of highlights, with plenty of inclusions, this tour is the perfect short escape. Beginning in Auckland, staying at the luxurious Sebel on the Viaduct, we enjoy a full day in Waiheke, with wine tastings before travelling north to Whangarei and Paihia, where we take a cruise to see the famous Hole in the Rock – we may even see some dolphins if we are lucky! We visit Waitangi, where we gain in-depth knowledge of the significance of the location and explore the beautiful Ninety Mile Beach & Cape Reinga. Here we can see two oceans collide and discover the place where according to Maori history, the spirits of deceased Maori leap into the ocean to return to their ancestral homeland of Hawaiki. Making our way back to Auckland, enroute, we visit the giant Kauris of the Waipoua Forest, home of Tane Mahuta, the country’s largest Kauri tree, which is approximately 2,000 years old and still growing – a sight to see!
