Bay of Islands Adventure

Bay of Islands – the name alone conjures up images of sunny days and spectacular scenery, and the real thing does not disappoint. Join a knowledgeable local leader on a five-day adventure through the best bits of this slice of heaven. Explore crystal clear lakes, ancient kauri forests and dazzling waterfalls while learning about the region’s Maori history and fascinating heritage. Swim, snorkel or kayak in the ocean, surf down sand dunes, walk through ancient caves and kick back on a boat. Aside from a group of like-minded travellers, your adventures may also be accompanied by fur seals, penguins, dolphins and whales.
