The Bay of Islands has it all - relaxation, culture and adventure.
If you enjoy the great outdoors you can take a boat trip or helicopter flight to the Hole in the Rock, join one of the many charter yachts, explore some of the islands, kayak and snorkel.
Enjoy a gentle stroll around historic Russell and lunch on the waterfront - or fish and chips on the beach as the sun goes down. Drive or hike around the Waipoua and Puketi Kauri Forests, explore the beautiful Hokianga Harbour, or get on your bike around the Twin Coasts or Waitangi cycleways.
The area has great markets, a lively arts scene, wine tours and superb restaurants. Or maybe a round of golf - world class courses in stunning scenery.
Soak up the history of the region when you visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and their sensational new museum, Kerikeri’s Stone Store and Kemp House, or maybe fly up to spiritual Cape Reinga. The area is rich in Maori culture and as the birthplace of the New Zealand nation, there is plenty to see and do.
From sensational scenery and pristine beaches to quirky kaleidoscopes and an artisan chocolate factory - there really is something for everyone.
