5 Day Escape to Russell
From $1179 per person share twin


Day 1 – Arrive Russell
Arrive into Russell and check into your accommodation for the next few nights.  This historic town is home to some of New Zealand’s oldest buildings dating back to 1843.   Take a stroll around Russell and step back in time discovering the colourful past of this quaint seaside village.

Day 2 – at Russell
Get to know your surroundings.  After a leisurely start to the day head down into the village and meet up with the team at Fullers for a guided mini tour of Russell.  This is an ideal way to find out about the history, hear to stories and get the locals recommendations of where to go for lunch and what the must see’s of the area are.

Day 3 – at Russell
It’s a must to get out on the water while visiting the Bay of Islands.  Carino Sailing will deliver an unforgettable experience.  Sailing on a catamaran, wildlife spotting, swimming & snorkelling, island stops and a kiwi style BBQ lunch are all included.

Day 4 – Russell to Cape Reinga
You’ll catch the ferry from Russell across the bay to Paihia this morning.   Once on the mainland you’ll join the crew at Salt Air for a trip to the northern most point of the country.  Fly up to Cape Reinga, walk out to the lighthouse and then experience a 4WD journey back down to the Bays.  The ferry will take you back across to Russell for your last night Arcadia Lodge.

Day 5 – Depart Russell
After breakfast check out and head home.

Cape Reinga by Air & 4WD
Salt Air’s “Cape Reinga Fly/Drive” product is an all inclusive tour and the best way to experience Cape Reinga. Depart Kerikeri airport in one of our modern aircraft, where each passenger has their own window seat. Our friendly pilots chat along the way about local history and points of interest. We fly up the west coast, with low level views of the world famous 90 mile beach before landing at a private airfield near the Cape. Here we are met by our comfortable air conditioned vehicle for a 2.5 hour guided ground tour exploring the top of New Zealand including Cape Reinga lighthouse where the 2 oceans meet. From here we make our way back to the plane and fly down Northland’s spectacular east coast via the Bay of Islands. Much of this stunning eastern coastline is untouched and not accessible by road.
