Northland

The wairua (spirit) is strong in this one. Two seas clash on the outer rim while giant forest guardians look over within.

If you are game to drive along 90mile beach you need to be a bit careful, only do it 2 hours after high tide and drive as close to the water as possible so you don’t get stuck in the soft sand. Lots of cars do get stuck, flooded and destroyed. Emergency services are far, far away, it is for this reason that if you are driving a rental car you will not be insured. If you are not keen to drive yourself, catch a tour bus.

If you get the chance, go boating in the Bay of Islands – the most relaxing place to be on the ocean. Surrounded by 144 sheltered islands where there are many private beaches to spend the day, or days at. Amazing.

Sailing in the Bay of Islands is sensational. Whether you’re a newbie looking to find your sea legs or an old hand who already knows the ropes, Great Escape has a sailing holiday for you.

A chance to go sailing on a working tall ship in one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand, the Bay of Islands. Better still, with profits made from tourism going to support youth development, your day out is going to a good cause!
