Soar above the rugged natural beauty of Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach on a small-group tour from Paihia that combines scenic flights with sightseeing on the ground. Flying to Cape Reinga is a spectacular way to see remote areas of the Bay of Islands, and the driving tour features the Cape Reinga Lighthouse, Te Paki quicksand, Tapotupotu Bay swimming, giant sand dune surfing, and morning tea with fresh pastries.
  • See more of Cape Reinga from air and land with this combo sightseeing tour
  • Fly to Cape Reinga for stunning views of the Northland’s remote coastline
  • Enjoy an active outing with beach walks and sand surfing
  • Includes morning tea plus convenient pickup and drop-off at Paihia hotels
What to Expect
Get picked up at your Paihia accommodations for transfer to the airport, then soar over Ninety Mile Beach and the Bay of Islands on the beautiful flight to Cape Reinga. Once you touch down, begin a 2.5-hour minibus tour of Cape Reinga highlights, starting with the Cape Reinga Lighthouse, which marks the spot where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. Pause for morning tea with fresh-baked pastries, then take a walk on the beach—and maybe a quick dip—at Tapotupotu Bay. Next, head to Te Paki to surf the giant sand dunes and see the quicksand streams. Following the Cape Reinga tour, board the plane again for the scenic return flight to Paihia, which takes in remote Parengarenga Harbour and Great Exhibition Bay, where you see dazzling white silica dunes and spectacular coastline. This Cape Reinga excursion concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Paihia.
