Trip Info

During this tour you will experience an encounter with mighty prehistoric giants that only a couple of centuries ago dominated the vast forests of the North Island of New Zealand. You will see amazing Kauri – our bewitching giants.

Unfortunately, very few of them remain and their future is still uncertain despite all the efforts of the state and New Zealanders…

If Kauri were mighty lords of the forests the second highlight of our tour are tiny and defenseless glow warms which bring to the darkness of the underground caves a mysterious bluish glow of an endless starry sky…

And of course, the scenery and historical sites in the famous Bay of Islands will complete our harmonious tour turning it into the first step towards your love of this beautiful part of our planet.
