What to expect:

At 9.15am you will be met by your tour guide at the Waitangi Wharf before you depart on your half-day tour. Your first stop is the Kawiti glow worm caves which is about a 30-minute drive from the Waitangi Wharf. You will be able to enjoy a magical glowworm experience. You will then move on to Kawakawa. This is a small town which is also known as “train town”.  

At 11:45am you will be at the Puketi Forest. This is a 15,000 hectare forest which contains magnificent stands of Kauri and a rich ecological diversity.

Around 12.30pm we stop at a lovely Cafe/Bakery where you can purchase your lunch - there is a wide variety of choices.

The next stop is the Makana Chocolate Factory in Kerikeri. This is a boutique chocolate factory where you can watch the making of chocolates, taste a few samples and of course shop for some delicious treats. You will also be able to visit the Kauri Workshop next door which has crafts and collectables for sale. You will then visit the famous horse shoe waterfalls, Haruru Falls. These falls are located in a hidden valley on the beautiful and peaceful Waitangi River. The last stop of the day is the Waitangi look-out Loop. This is a final chance to take in the stunning views over Waitangi and the Bay of Islands, before your transportation back to the wharf or Paihia if you would prefer to have a look around.
