    What to Expect
    This full day tour in our unique Dune Rider vehicle is the best way to explore the Far North. Let our drivers immerse you in the culture and history of the area, while taking in the amazing scenery.

    The Dune Rider vehicle is purpose built to go off-road in comfort with air conditioning, reclining seats, plenty of leg room and sloping floors for great viewing.

    Your full day tour begins with an early morning pick up at your accommodation and includes a sit down buffet style lunch at Waitiki Landing, visiting Cape Reinga lighthouse to view the meeting of the two oceans, a beach stop on 90 Mile Beach, boogie boarding down huge sand dunes at Te Paki stream and time at the Ancient Kauri Kingdom.
