Cape Reinga – the best way!

Northland-Flagstaff-Lodge-Cape-Reinga-Light-HouseA visit to the very top of New Zealand is a one of the highlights of a trip to Northland but if you only have 2 or 3 weeks to see all of NZ, it can be a stretch!  Recently, I had the chance to try a trip from Russell which does it all brilliantly and in just half a day!  It can easily be part of even the tightest itinerary and saves a lot of driving.  The trip starts with a ferry ride over to Paihia and a transfer to Kerikeri airport to join the spectacular scenic flight North, up famous Ninety Mile beach.  Once landed, you enjoy a fascinating, 2.5 hr guided tour visiting the lighthouse, learning of the spiritual significance to Maori of this special area, visiting a beautiful nearby bay for a refreshment break and exploring the giant Te Paki sand dunes.  Then back to the plane for another amazing scenic flight down the Eastern coastline and over the beautiful Bay of Islands.  We loved it so much we’ve created a 2 night package which includes the trip.  See all the details on our Packages page: Flagstaff Lodge Packages
