10 days around New Zealand’s North Island on a luxury yacht

10 days around New Zealand’s North Island on a luxury yacht

1 of 10 1/10

Wonders Of Whangaroa

From exploring the inner volcano on White Island to nibbling on kiwi fruit in the Bay of Plenty, to fishing on Lake Taupo or sampling the wine at Hawkes Bay, a private cruise or a luxury yacht charter charter around New Zealand's North Island can be customised to suit any style or taste.

Delight in the unspoiled scenery while taking in the region’s captivating history and enjoying the local wine and cuisine. It will be a vacation to remember.

Day 1: Wonders Of Whangaroa

Join the yacht in Whangaroa Harbour, just 30 minutes by road from the local airport in Kerikeri. This area with its rugged cliffs and spectacular scenery is a stunning introduction to New Zealand. You might choose to spend a couple of nights, in advance of the charter, in the nearby Kauri Cliffs Luxury Lodge, unwinding in its spa or getting in a few rounds on its golf course.

You have a number of options in Whangaroa – cover some distance on Ninety Mile Beach (which is actually only 55 miles long) or trek into Waipoua Kauri Forest to marvel at the 13 metre girth of Tane Mahuta (Lord of the Forest), the largest known Kauri Tree in the world, and spectacularly ancient too at an estimated 2,000 years old.

Or you could take to the air in a helicopter and follow the coastline up to Cape Reinga, at the very top of North Island, where the Pacific meets the Tasman at Columbia Bank, and waves can be over 10 metres high.

Back on board, cruise to Pekapeka Bay, where the yacht will anchor overnight.
