New Zealand: The Bay of Islands - New Zealand

Now's the time to explore New Zealand on your terms with this tour that's affordable for young travellers. Water babies, unite! Nature is calling your name to this four-day trip through New Zealand's Bay of Islands. Explore this outdoorsman’s (or outdoor person's, rather) paradise full of hiking trails, secluded swimming and snorkelling spots, and endless coasts for kayaking and sailing. Not enough for ya? A night aboard a houseboat should do the trick. We take care of all the fuss. All you need to do is have the time of your life.

Day 1 Auckland
Arrive at any time.

It’s time to make some memories! Join your CEO and group for a night out in Auckland. Dinner, drinks, ice cream? You’ll mix and match these depending on the mood of the group to enjoy a wonderful evening. So what are you waiting for? You can choose to grab dinner somewhere tasty, or to head to Giapo ice cream parlour—contributor to Planeterra for a sweet snack, or to go check out craft beer bars downtown like Little Creatures and Habana Joe's. The options seem endless, but regardless of where the night takes you just make sure you snap loads of pictures because there’s no doubt you’ll want to remember this.

Day 2 Auckland/Bay of Islands
Get off the beaten path and travel north on backroads, stopping to see giant kauri trees (some of the largest trees in the world) along the way. Then hop in crystal clear waters for an included snorkelling activity at the Goat Island Marine Reserve. See what life under the sea is all about before boarding a large houseboat for an overnight trip through the beautiful Bay of Islands.

Day 3 Bay of Islands/Paihia
Make the most of your time on the boat with a free morning to do all of the things you didn’t get to do yesterday. Hop in the water for some kayaking or snorkelling. Visit the nearby islands to do some more exploring, or maybe try your hand at fishing. Then, it’s time to hop off the boat and give the town of Paihia some love. Do some hiking through the lush native forest, go chase some waterfalls, walk along the beach, or grab ice cream and cool off in town while people watching. Then find your group for dinner together in this backpacker haven.

Day 4 Paihia/Auckland
It’s always nice when you get some time to catch your breath! Take advantage of this free morning in Paihia to stroll the waterfront, check out the historic Waitangi Treaty grounds, lounge in the town centre with an ice cold drink, or go out on a whim and book a skydiving adventure. No matter what you decide you’re only real job today is to have some fun.

The group returns to Auckland in the early evening where the tour finishes upon arrival.
