Full description
Embark on an epic journey from Paihia to Cape Reinga as you explore the northernmost tip of New Zealand on this full-day sightseeing tour. Board your luxury coach, purpose-built to glide over multiple terrains, from the sandy shores of 90 Mile Beach to the winding roads leading to Cape Reinga, complete with air-conditioning for your comfort as you wander to the Winterless North.

Take a smooth ride along 90 Mile Beach, stop to admire the surf, dig your toes in the sand, and help your driver dig for shellfish (tide permitting). Your journey continues to Te Paki where you can get your fill of adrenalin as you climb the giant sand dunes and zoom back down head-first on a boogie board. 

Listen as your knowledgeable driver-guide provides informative commentary along the way. Listen to Māori legends and learn the history of this wild and untouched region. Upon arrival in Cape Reinga, take a short walk across the headland to reach the famous Cape Reinga Lighthouse and marvel as the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean collide before your eyes. Be sure to take a few snaps at the signpost which shows the distance from that point to destinations around the world. Upon the return journey to Paihia, stop at Mangonui where you can sample the best fish and chips in the world before your tour concludes.
