We were amazed at the beauty of area, and took some wonderful photos. Included in our trip was sand boarding down massive sand dunes, fun for even those just watching. On... More

We visited Cape Reinga as part of a tour incorporating Ninety Mile Beach and the Kauri Museum and this was a very worthwhile stop. The scenery is stunning and to see the Tasman Sea and the Pacific resisting each other where they meet was a memorable sight.

I'm a Kiwi and spent a lot of time up north but have never actually made it to Cape Reinga until now. The tour was great stopping in to the Kauri forest and sand boarding down the Ninety Mile Beach dunes. We went from Paihia and it was a long days trip but well worth the effort. Some great scenery...

We booked this tour as part of a "combo" deal offered by Fullers. Two tours were included: this and the "Dolphin Cruise to the Hole in the Rock", the latter being a boat trip to and from the "Hole in the Rock" off Cape Brett in the Bay of Islands. The catch with the combo deal is that you have... More
