Cape Reinga day trip

It’s an early start today as we head up to New Zealand’s Northernmost Point - Cape Reinga. Along the way, we make a couple of stops where you will learn more about the history and Māori legends of the area. The first stop is the Puketi Kauri Forest where you can get up close to ancient and majestic giant kauri trees and native bush. Our next stop is the legendary Sand Surfing at Te Paki Stream, not for the faint-hearted! Clamber up massive sand dunes and then ‘surf’ down the dunes on your stomach, a sure way to get the heart pumping. From here we visit the famous Cape Reinga, a must-do for locals and visitors alike. Hear stories of this significant site where, according to Māori legend, spirits depart on their journey home to Hawaiki. Don’t forget to grab that gram at the famous lighthouse and see the point where the Tasman Sea meets the mighty Pacific Ocean. On our way back to Paihia, we drive along 90 Mile Beach in a custom-built coach. Feel the sand between your toes as you help your driver dig for shellfish, and then cook them once you get back to the hostel.
