Discover the rugged natural beauty of Cape Reinga, located on the tip of New Zealand's North Island. Perfect for those short on time who want to make the most of this splendid area, this combination scenic aeroplane flight and driving small-group tour showcases the best of the top end of New Zealand.

Get amazing aerial views of scenic harbors and the infamous Ninety Mile Beach before landing.On the ground, hop aboard a minibus for a 2.5-hour guided driving tour through the top of New Zealand that will showcase the beautiful scenery. Wander around the Cape Reinga Lighthouse, where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean, and discover the history and myths of this sacred region. Enjoy fresh oven-baked treats for morning tea, and then have time for a stroll along the beach at Tapotupotu Bay before heading to the Te Paki quicksand stream to sand-surf down the giant dunes.The return flight to the Bay of Islands takes in more spectacular coastal scenery, including Parengarenga Harbour and Great Exhibition Bay, with pure white silica sand and crystal-clear water that is visible only by air or by sea.
