A thirty minute scenic flight by light plane over the sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf brings you to majestic Great Barrier Island. After breakfast at a local café take an easy half hour walk on gravelled tracks and boardwalks past giant Nikau palms and rare native flora and fauna over unique wetlands to the Kaitoke natural thermal springs.

The adventure continues as we drive past native bush and rugged peaks to a private farm where there is a sweeping, often deserted stretch of pristine white sand beach. There is time for a swim or a meander along the beach to visit the graves of those drowned in one of New Zealand’s worst shipwrecks. On this farm the world’s largest population of Brown Teal can be found, a friendly little duck on the verge of extinction. At a nearby stream, monster eels come when called and can be fed – if you dare!

We then stop at a scenic location where we have a relaxed kiwi style picnic lunch.

This unforgettable day is rounded off with a climb to the top of Windy Canyon, a spectacular short walk. The path winds around rocky outcrops and past sheer cliffs coated with rata vines and takes in breathtaking views of the island and beyond.

The flight back returns you to Auckland.
