The tour was by special off-road bus. We stopped at beautiful beaches, climbed and glided down giant sand dunes, and walked up to the farthest north lighthouse in New Zealand!

It is fun. Jeeps and 4WD cars running on it. The beach is a cool highway, in the winter time is so abandoned.

No, all the tours start at Kaitaia and return in the late afternoon. There is plenty of time to walk out to the lighthouse on these trips and the BBQ on the beach before you get there is nice. We spoke to several people... More
