Cape Reinga & 90 Mile Beach Tour
- Full Day Tour
- Departs from Paihia
Set off from Paihia in the Bay of Islands and travel through spectacular scenery as your driver shares fascinating stories about Northland's history. This exhilarating tour will see you speeding down massive sand dunes, driving along sand and surf and meeting a 2,000 year-old kauri tree in an ancient kauri forest.
According to Māori legend, the headland at Cape Reinga is where spirits leave New Zealand and return to the land of their ancestors, Hawaiki. Walk down to the iconic Cape Reinga lighthouse and see the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean crashing together below you. Soak up the amazing atmosphere and strikingly beautiful vistas, and don't forget to snap a selfie with the famous signpost!
Our Cape Reinga day tours depart daily on modern, comfortable buses with free wifi, and include entertaining commentary from experienced local guides.
