Cape Reinga

The vast ocean and plunging cliffs make the most Northern tip of Aotearoa a definite must-do. Two oceans clash where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean, watched over by a mythic 800 year old pohutukawa tree.

Franz Josef Glacier

An enormous icy beauty, take a helicopter ride to truly appreciate the scale of this glacier and the surrounding rainforest temperature.
