We travelled with Fullers Great Sights on their extensive one day trip and fully recommend this. It isn't cheap, but fair value for what you get. It would be impossible to do the same trip yourself. The only slightly weak part was the lunch of fish and chips that was rather greasy. The vegetarian option of falafel and salad looked... More

The trip there was very very very dangerous, I went around the end of the year which there are lots of tourist. So there were lots of dangerous drivers who are unfamiliar with the road up there. However once you are there, you will appreciate the view. It is very beautiful, very rare sort of view for most tourist.

I will only say that for solo travellers I'd recommend staying the night at the campsite. Groups looking for spending a single day should tak one of the Ancient Kauri Kingdom tours from Awanui. Both will leave you Awestruck.

Travelling through New Zealand you should not miss to go to the North and enjoy the walking paths at Cape Reinga. All these can be done easily and some paths are suitable and usable for people in rolling chairs. All is very well prepared and amintained, you just have to leave your car and enjoy the wind, the terrific panorama... More

You have to go there just to see the top of New Zealand and the meeting of the seas. On a fine day the views are fantastic

I've done a road trip around New Zealand. In the North Island, Cape Reinga is one of the most beautiful place I've seen. The view is absolutly fabulous when you walk down to go to the lighthouse. You can also see the sand dunes from the 90miles beach. You can take some wonderful pictures of the meeting between the Pacific... More

Simply beautiful and knowing you're on the top, north of the North Island in New Zealand, the feeling was extraordinary!
