Kia Ora to Auckland, the City of Sails. Be our guest at our traditional Welcome Drink and Dinner. Getting to know each other is top of the list and your tour guide will give you further information on your upcoming New Zealand photo tour adventure.
Tuesday, Day 2
Auckland > Whangarai
After the briefing for the day we start off for New Zealand's Northlands with several photo stops e.g. at the Puhoi Valley cheese factory and a Honey Farm. We will spend the night in Whangarei.
Wednesday, Day 3
Whangarai > Paihia
From Whangarei we will head to Paihia at the historic and beloved Bay of Islands for a boats tour experiencing the 'Hole in the Rock'.
Thursday, Day 4
Paihia > Kaitaia
We will start the day with a visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, the birth location of New Zealand. Today’s destination is Kaitaia, the perfect starting point for tomorrow.
Friday, Day 5
Kaitaia > Dargaville
Today we will head for New Zealand’s 'most northern spot' and visit the Cape Reinga with the small post office station, a guide to the great wide world and the solitary lighthouse. It is a spiritual spot. Here the spirit of the dead glide into the underworld to their homeland Hawaiki, so the Maori say. After this detour to the far north, we will travel south on the Twin Coast Discovery Highway. There we will cross with the ferry from Kohukohu to Rawene. Our route takes us to the Waipoua Kauri Forest where we will find amongst others the most impressing tree of New Zealand, Tane Mahuta, the 'God of the Forest'. It has a width of 4,5m, a height of 51m and is over 2000 years old. We will spend the night after this exciting day in Dargaville.
Saturday, Day 6
Dargaville > Auckland
On our last day we travel along the Twin Coast Discovery Highway and will arrive sometime in the afternoon in Auckland. In the evening we meet for our traditional Farewell Dinner in which we can recap the adventures of our photography tour through New Zealand.
