Description

If time is short and you want to make the most of a trip to the top of New Zealand's North Island, there is no better way to do it than on this four day self drive tour which begins and ends in Auckland and takes in the stunning sub tropical Bay of Islands. You have the freedom to go where you like but if you follow our itinerary you will make the most of your trip which makes a great add on to any adventure in Lord of the Rings country.

Day 1
Auckland- Bay Of Islands

Drive north to the resort town of Paihia, gateway to the Bay of Islands. This town’s an aquatic playground lavishly furnished with 144 islands and a myriad of golden beaches fringed by Pohutukawa trees. On arrival, make your way to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, one of New Zealand’s most historic sites. The tour guide brings the Treaty story to life and introduces you to some of the key personalities and events that have shaped the nation. Enjoy a fun filled and spine-tingling cultural performance as well as the famous haka

Day 2
Bay of Islands

Let someone else do the driving today and enjoy a full day tour to the very top of the North Island – Cape Reinga, where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. Leaving the road the coach takes you along sandy Ninety Mile Beach and across Te Paki Steam where you can choose to take part in sand-boarding down the enormous sand dunes. During the visit you’ll get up close to ancient and majestic giant Kauri trees before returning to Paihia.

Day 3
Bay of Islands

Today’s half day Bay of Islands cruise takes you in search of dolphins, whales and other marine life. Enjoy the views during the journey to the end of the Cape Brett Peninsula, to the famous Hole in the Rock. Stop off at picturesque Urupukapuka Island and relax on the beach or walk to the top of the island to enjoy 360 degree views before the cruise back to port.

Day 4
Bay of Islands/Auckland

This afternoon leave Paihia for your return journey via Whangarei to Auckland where your tour ends. You can then return your rental car to the airport or add additional days and see more of New Zealand.

Absolutely brilliant again. Due to a death in the family these flights were booked at very short notice and then we changed the return date which could easily have proved an additional stress - but Dylan sorted it all really quickly and with no fuss and I’d very much like to thank him for everything
