Northland
November/December 2020

Visit the ‘winterless north’ of New Zealand as the Pohutukawa bloom. Enjoy exceptional coastal beauty, sweeping beaches and magnificent stands of native trees. Visit important places of historical and cultural significance and some of the country’s best museums. If you have not travelled to Northland before you will delight in the friendly people, delicious local food and slower pace of life. An early summer visit will afford us warm weather and long evenings, perfect for enjoying sunsets over the magnificent Hokianga. On this tour we will see the iconic highlights of Northland but will also have time to wander, get out on azure waters of the Bay of Islands and meet the locals.
