Highlights

At Haka Tours we believe that size does matter and that’s why we only take a max of 16 guests at a time on our 22 seater Haka coach. You’ll have a unique Haka Adventure with a passionate local Kiwi guide. This tour is great if you want a magical, yet quick escape to soak up the sun in beautiful Northland. As the tour starts early in the morning, you can opt to book accommodation with us in Auckland the night before the tour – only having to walk downstairs on day 1 makes for a stress-free morning. Likewise, you can book an extra night at the end of the tour so you are not in a rush once we go our separate ways.

What You'll Get

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Paihia Harbour, Paihia New Zealand

Kia ora! Nau mai, haere mai ki Aotearoa!

Hello and welcome to New Zealand –The Land of the Long White Cloud!

After our 8am welcome breakfast, we’ll kick off our tour with a leisurely scenic drive to the subtropical “Winterless North”.

The Northland region is home to some seriously ancient and impressive kauri forests. We’ll stroll through the largest of these – the Waipoua Forest – to meet Tane Mahuta, the hugest of them all. At over 1,250 years old and over 51 metres tall, he’s looking pretty good for his age.

We’ll also visit Hokianga Harbour, unique for its 150 metre high sand dunes. When the weather's fine and the tides are on our side, you've got the option of sandboarding down into the beautiful water – it's an unforgettable experience worth the cheap and cheerful price!

We reach the town of Paihia, the jewel of the Bay of Islands, in the early evening. As the sun sets, we’ll treat you all to a fish and chips feast overlooking the water. It doesn’t get more Kiwi than that!

Duration: 1 day

Stop At: Paihia Harbour, Paihia New Zealand

With more than 140 sub-tropical islands dotted around the coastline, how will you spend your day in the Bay?

Hitting the water is the best way to enjoy the coves and beaches of this corner of paradise, and the options are endless. Cruise through a natural rock archway, explore the ocean floor on a scuba mission, sail in search of the local dolphins (or even swim with them!), or snorkel your way around beautiful islands. Check out our awesome add-ons for ideas or hit up your guide for inspiration.

For an epic day out, take a road trip to Cape Reinga – the northernmost tip of New Zealand – to see where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean collide. It’s an unforgettable sight.

Thrill-seekers – you'll have the chance to fly high above the ocean on a parasailing adventure. Or hire a kayak, sail boat or stand-up paddleboard and check out the Bay of Islands from sea level.

Whatever you choose, you’ll have epic stories to swap with your travel buddies tonight as the sun sets on an awesome day.

Duration: 1 day

Stop At: Haka Hotel Newmarket, 9 Manukau Rd, Epsom, Auckland 1023, New Zealand

Today, discover the Bay of Islands’ important role in New Zealand’s history with a trip to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. We love bringing you here, it’s a truly unforgettable insight into Māori culture. The 35-metre carved waka (ceremonial war canoe), the world’s biggest, is a must-see.

After lunch we say goodbye to the Bay. We make time for a very special rest stop in Kawakawa to check out the grass-roofed, mosaic-covered, cobblestoned Hundertwasser Toilets. There’s even a living tree in there.

There are some beautiful waterfalls around the area, if you know where to look – and we certainly do! So we’ll stop off at one of them, depending on the weather and what your Haka Guide’s favourite spot is.

We head back to Auckland via Northland’s east coast, which boasts stunning beaches and coastal walks. Be sure to have your swimwear handy – if time permits, your Haka Guide will take you to some of their top locations!

After an epic day, we reach the bright lights of the City of Sails in the early evening – and bid farewell to your new pals from tour. If you'd like to stay with us at our Haka accommodation tonight, you can confirm it online when you're booking your tour.
