Cape Reinga Nature and Eco Tourism
Cape Reinga is almost as far north as you can go in New Zealand. Situated at the north western most tip of the Aupouri Peninsula, Cape Reinga lies at the northern end of the North Island. It is 100km north of the nearest small town of Kaitaia and some 421km from Auckland (five hours drive away).
The Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean at Cape Reinga in a swirl of currents and at the ancient pohutukawa tree, it is believed Maori spirits leap into the ocean to journey to their ancestral homeland of Hawaiki. more
The Cape Reinga lighthouse is a popular destination for travellers, but the journey past ancient kauri trees, sparkling seas, the sandy white beaches and dunes of 90 Mile Beach is a huge part of the experience. Popular activities at Cape Reinga include guided tours, scenic flights, diving, snorkelling, fishing, hiking and bird watching.
The stunning Te Paki Coastal Track is also popular. At 53km, it takes three to four days to complete, although shorter sections make for good short walks. It offers spectacular views and follows the coast from Spirits Bay, Sandy Bay, Pandora, Cape Reinga, Cape Maria van Dieman, Twilight Beach, Te Paki Stream, 90 Mile Beach to Ahipara.
