Northland Winter Getaway
Always drawing a large crowd over the summer months, Northland is also a great destination for winter getaways.
As one of the warmest regions in the country it’s no wonder Northland is known as the ‘winterless North’, and though there are a lot of outdoor activities to enjoy, there is lots to do if you do experience some rain.
The Bay of Islands offers a relaxed lifestyle but still has all the everyday amenities close at hand. Surrounded by 144 islands the region has first class seafood, wines, fruit and vegetables for keen foodies!
Kerikeri is a place to indulge and have fun. Mullarkey Tours offer a wine tour where you will visit three of the region’s best wineries while enjoying a platter lunch. They offer a motel pick up and drop off service. Please click on the link for more information.
Cosy fires, hearty food, and beautiful rugged scenery are what we love about the winter months. Wrap up and walk along a wild, empty Northland beach one afternoon is sure to blow those cobwebs out and build an appetite. Fishing charters operate year-round, so if you want to venture into subtropical waters there is lots of sea life and great visibility to be had.
Visit historical Russell by ferry from Paihia, wander along a beach before dining at a waterfront restaurant, finishing off your day with a nightcap at the Duke of Marlborough. Not too bad!
Far North Rentals operating out of Kerikeri Airport offer weekend deals on both compact and medium cars. Why not hire a car to help you explore all the area has to offer?
