Tour Itinerary

Walk amongst giant kauri trees, spend the night anchored in a secluded bay, savour a traditional Kiwi barbecue in Paihia

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.
Activity: Your opportunity to meet your CEO and fellow travellers, and learn more about your tour. Opt to join the group for a local meal afterwards. Don't forget to see the notice in the lobby (or ask reception) for the official time and place to meet up with the group.
Activity: Connect with new friends on your first night out in a new destination. Only available on 18-to-Thirtysomethings tours.
Accommodation: Jucy Snooze Auckland (or similar)

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.
Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
Activity: Grab a snorkel and mask and play Jacques Cousteau. See an array of marine life up close at this amazing snorkelling site and reserve that's been protected for more than 30 years. Keep an eye out for blue maomaos, eagle and sting rays, octopi, kahawais, dolphins, and orcas!
Activity: Board a houseboat for some marine fun and a memorable overnight excursion. Go kayaking, swimming, target shooting, shellfish gathering or dolphin spotting - the list is endless. Spend some quality R&R time on a nearby remote island after an active day. Leave your worries behind - all activities and meals on board are included, and the night is spent anchored at a secluded bay.
Accommodation: Rock Boat Cruise (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast (Breakfast box) Dinner (Beefsteak and salad buffet)

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.
Free Time: Spend free time in this seaside town any way you want - swim, trek or just relax on one of the golden-sand beaches.
Accommodation: The Bay Adventurer (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast (Basic muesli, corn flakes, and the captains' favourite porridge) Lunch (Picnic lunch (piece of fruit, sandwich, brownie, and snack bar)) Dinner

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.
Free Time: Use free time in this seaside town any way you want. Head out on a marine adventure or just grab some quality R&R on the beach.
Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
Activity: Not ready to leave? Your CEO can help with any onward travel arrangements you require.
Meal(s): Breakfast

Questions & Answers

Question: Any escortd tours suitable for seniors?

All escorted tours are suitable for seniors in good health. In fact, touring is the preferred way to see the world for seniors due to the convenience of not having to plan, being accompanied by a tour director the entire time, and getting expert knowledge from local guides.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

This was my 8th tour with this operator and I have a 9th scheduled. Obviously I am happy with this operator.

It was a great tour and are guides were very knowledgeable.

A Gadventures tour is a great affordable way to see the country and get the opportunity to meet and interact with the local people

It was a dream vacation.Thank you.

The G-Adventures travel guides were excellent

All 100% perfect, nothing to be done better

The G Adventures tour was fantastic.

Very satisfied with tour, enjoyed it very much.

I liked the variety of activities and the chance to opt out without undue pressure. I met some really fun people on this tour.

Everyone connected with the tour went above and beyond. The tour was more than I ever dreamt!

Our CEO Solofo for this trip is fantastic. He is patient and very nice. He went extra ways to help me and other members. I really enjoy this trip because of him! He is an excellent CEO. I definitely will recommend to other friends about him. Pls let him know that we really enjoy his introduction. He is also very informative and knowledgeable. In a word, he is excellent!

Great trip at a reasonable price.

Awesome trip in a great country. Our CEO was professional and fun!!!

G adventures offers hands down some of the best tour packages out there!

The Japan vacation was better than I expected!!!! It was an active "moving" trip, which I truly enjoyed. I've done "coach tours" where you sit on the bus and they take you -- this experience was "hands on" riding the buses, trains and running through the streets -- it was amazing !!!!! We got the full feel of Japan and the people. This trip is not for the weak or slow pace crowd - you drag your luggage through the streets, up and down stairs --- it was truly exciting and exhilarating. G adventures has a fan for life. The instructions and assistance was outstanding -- Great job - Steve (AffordableTours.com) was outstanding !
