Prepare you to spend 2 amazing days in the Bay of Islands, one of the most visited sites of New Zealand! After leaving your hotel you will travel by minibus to the north of the island. The schedule for the excursion is as follows:
- Day 1: Discover the New Zealand coast and guided tour of Russell
Follow the coast and its beautiful scenery. We will see many beaches and a major historic site: the Waitangi Treaty House. This place saw the signing of the treaty between the Maori and European pioneers and the official creation of New Zealand in 1840. Stops and visits will help you make the most of these exceptional sites.
On arrival in the Bay of Islands we will take a ferry to the town of Russell. There will be a mini guided tour of Russell and you can go shopping along the waterfront. We will then return to Paihia for the night.
- Day 2: Bay of Islands cruise and free time in Paihia
For your second day in the Bay of Islands, we will enjoy a 3 hour cruise to Cape Brett. Enjoy extraordinary scenery and hopefully encounter many dolphins!
There will be plenty of free time to relax on the beach or visit the shops on the sea front. In late afternoon, the bus will take you on a leisurely trip back to your hotel in Auckland.
