Listen as your knowledgeable driver and guide provides informative commentary along the way. Hear Māori legends and learn the history of this wild and untouched region. Upon arrival in Cape Reinga, take a short walk across the headland to reach the famous Cape Reinga Lighthouse and marvel as the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean collide before your eyes.
