Boutique Bay of Islands Escape

3 Day Boutique Bay of Islands Escape - Hero, Russell

Independent Tours

Discover the stunning Bay of Islands, a sub-tropical micro-region dotted with 144 islands, around 3.5 hours north of Auckland on this boutique self-drive escape. You’ll get the chance to relax in a luxury lodge perched cliffside and surrounded by native bush, with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding bays. Enjoy getting out on the water and spotting the abundance of marine life on a small group cruise. And, take in the spectacular scenery, coastal townships, diverse wildlife, ancient forests of kauri trees, rolling farmland, and vineyards. You’ll also have the chance to learn about the Māori history at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, a highly recommended experience.
