Itinerary
Get picked up at your Paihia accommodations for transfer to the airport, then soar over Ninety Mile Beach and the Bay of Islands on the beautiful flight to Cape Reinga. Once you touch down, begin a 2.5-hour minibus tour of Cape Reinga highlights, starting with the Cape Reinga Lighthouse, which marks the spot where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean.

Pause for morning tea with fresh-baked pastries, then take a walk on the beach—and maybe a quick dip—at Tapotupotu Bay. Next, head to Te Paki to surf the giant sand dunes and see the quicksand streams.

Following the Cape Reinga tour, board the plane again for the scenic return flight to Paihia, which takes in remote Parengarenga Harbour and Great Exhibition Bay, where you see dazzling white silica dunes and spectacular coastline.

This Cape Reinga excursion concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Paihia.
