The Bay of Islands Self Guided Motorcycle Tour
Discover the hidden delights of the North Island with a short tour from Auckland. Heading north you’ll ride on great roads along beautiful shorelines, through subtropical vegetation, past cascading waterfalls and around incredible scenery up to the famous Bay of Islands. The very tip of the North Island at Cape Reinga is a 'must see' for that very special feeling as you gaze over endless waters and two oceans meet.
If you can think of a better way to spend three days, we'd like to hear about it!
Start your trip in New Zealand's most cosmopolitan city. Stroll through Queen Street, enjoy some of the best dining in New Zealand and cruise magnificent Waitemata Harbour, the 'heart' of the city. You don't have to be a yachtsman to appreciate the City of Sails - but it helps!
Heading north you’ll ride on great roads past beautiful shorelines, subtropical vegetation, waterfalls and incredible scenery up to the famous Bay of Islands. The Twin Coast Highway leads you through the heart of Maori culture and past villages with quaint cafés, museums and shops all built in the original colonial style.
Northland and Cape Reinga
Clear blue water and innumerable sheltered coves will make plain to you why this area is so famous for its coastal scenery! A relaxed approach to pretty much everything, sets the pace in the Bay of Islands. Cape Reinga is a must see for that special feeling of reaching the 'end of the world' when you look out over the endless ocean. The coming together of the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean happens just off the point, which makes for some very lively waters - even in good weather!
On the way back to Auckland the route along the west side of the island winds through lovely woodlands and valleys, past lakes and rivers and the 2000-year-old Kauri tree in the Waipoua Forest. A wild and relatively untouched region of the North Island, makes for some great riding to end your tour on.
Three days will be over in a flash, but the memories will last a lifetime!
This tour is completely customisable. Longer, further, curvier, anything you need (within reason). Just ask!
