Full description

Learn more about Māori traditions at Cape Reinga or Te Rerenga Wairua, by visiting the place where spirits are said to depart on their long journey back to their true homeland on this group tour. 

Stand at the northernmost point of New Zealand and drink in the panoramic views. Snap a picture beneath the iconic lighthouse, look out at the point where the Tasman Sea collides with the mighty Pacific Ocean, and, if you’re feeling adventurous, try sandboarding.

Travel in the local partner's purpose-built 46-seat tour bus designed for cruising along 90 Mile Beach, where some other tours can’t reach. Listen to entertaining and thought-provoking insight into the culture, history, and natural wonders of the far north from your local guide. Have a delicious locally prepared lunch to keep you fueled throughout the day.

Try sandboarding at Te Paki Stream. Feel closer to the nature and culture of New Zealand on this tour.

Why would you want to do this journey on our own? They do all the driving for you, so all you need to do is to relax, enjoy the scenery and hear about all the wonderful local stories and history about the special places and people that you visit. The drivers are great characters too! Well worth the money.
