    Description
    Nature lovers who leave the North Island without stopping off at the Bay of Islands will kick themselves all the way back home (and that's a looong flight). This four-day trip to this outdoorsman's paradise features ample time hiking the nature trails and makes the most of all that water with plenty of opportunities for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, and sailing. Not enough? A night aboard a houseboat should do the trick. We take care of all the fuss. All you have to do is have the time of your life.

    Day 1AucklandDay 1 Auckland
    Arrive in Auckland at any time. There are no planned activities during the day, so check into the hotel and explore the city. Visit the Maritime Museum, walk the waterfront, or even take the ferry to Waiheke Island. Additional Notes: Jump right into your adventure by adding the Auckland Sailing: Americas Cup Experience extra to your tour. Work with a crew to sail around Aucklands Waitemata Harbour on a competitive yacht, and take in the stunning views. PLEASE NOTE: If booking this extra, a pre-night in Auckland is highly recommended as this activity may start early in the morning on Day 1. This tour departs Auckland early on Day 2. If you are interested in exploring the city and its nearby attractions, like the Hobbiton Movie Set or local wineries, it is recommended you book additional pre-trip accommodation nights.

Continue on to the Bay of Islands and board a houseboat - your home for the night.
