Itinerary: day by day
Day 1 – Auckland to Paihia, Bay of Islands
Start your Bay of Islands adventure in Auckland. Head out across the scenic harbour and travel north to Parry Kauri Park, home to the magnificent and ancient Kauri tree. Next, we head to the seaside town of Paihia in the beautiful Bay of Islands. The bay is made up of 144 islands, secluded bays and incredible marine life — the picture perfect New Zealand you’ve been dreaming of. Settle in at your hotel and take the evening at your own pace. You can relax by the pool, or head into town for a meal and a glass of the best New Zealand wine. (B)
*Upgrade to overnight ‘Rock the Boat’ option
If you’re keen to experience some more of the bay, you can take an optional overnight cruise. This cruise includes a cosy bar and a night full of laughs, music and good company. Sign up for the pool competition, or head out on to the deck to spot satellites and shooting stars. Whilst on board, you can expect amazing views, golden sunsets and an open log fire.
