Wat je gaat doen

We'll explore the Wellington Taputeranga Marine Reserve and visit the Brooklyn wind turbine where we get stunning panoramic views of the Wellington region. We then leave the city driving north stopping at Rivendell, a LOTR site at the Kaitoke Regional Park.

From there we head across the Remutaka ranges to Martinborough, stopping at the Landgirl cafe for coffee. Next stop is the Ngawi fishing village for lunch and views across Cape Pallliser.

Less than 2km from Ngawi is the Cape Palliser where we stop and meet the local seals and their pups – this is one of the best nature experiences in New Zealand as we can get up close, but far enough away not to disturb them. It’s mesmerising and every visit is different! About 1km further along the Coast is the Cape Palliser lighthouse that we walk up 284 steps to have amazing coastal views. At this point we are at the most southern point of the North Island.

On our return journey we stop at the Putangirua Pinnacles scenic conservation reserve. We’ll follow the marked track for 45min venturing venture up to the Pinnacles and walk amongst them. Along the way we'll see fossils embedded in the rocks. Following this we travel back to Wellington.
Other things to note
You will given a detailed briefing of the day's activities when we meet. Your safety and enjoyment of the day is our main priority. As Wellington's weather is changeable please bring warm clothing.

I cannot give this enough 5 stars. Raymond and Julia were fantastic tour hosts! It was very rainy the morning they picked us up and they altered the trip to do a few inside things allowing the weather to blow over a bit. There is no way we could have done this trip on our own as they personalized it as we continued into the day. It ended with a lovely dinner together with them before we headed back in to Wellington. A day with Raymond and Julia is truly remarkable and definitely memorable!

I wasn’t certain about going on this experience and I expressed my concerns with Raymond. He was so understanding and yet completely transparent which convinced me. I do not regret it at all. Julia his partner, joined us as well, and it was a great experience. They are lovely, it feels completely private and designed really for you. You can choose where you’d like to spend more time vs not. Julia’s lovely fresh sandwiches were perfect for lunch. I couldn’t recommend them more.

This experience was perfect. I felt very at ease with Raymond and his partner, by the end of the day I felt like I knew them for more than just a day. The day was well organized, and Raymond was flexible. The weather was not so great, so we ended up going wine tasting and chocolate tasting, which was great! The landscape throughout the day is amazing and worth it ! To wrap up the day we ended up having diner together, which was not part of the itinerary, but which was great.

I couldn't have had a more wonderful day with Raymond and Julia. They were super friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic and gave me an experience I wouldn't have had otherwise. Who knew this amazing area even existed? I would never thought to have explored it. We first went to a viewpoint high over Wellington with a spectacular view of the city and harbor. They then drove to a beautiful park in the mountains where the Rivendell scenes in LOTR were filmed which is on the way to Point Pallisar. We had lunch along the way on a gorgeous stretch of coast before stopping to see the fur seals with all their pups. They were so adorable!! And there were so many! Later we climbed the stairs to the lighthouse for a wonderful view up and down the coast and then on the way back took an easy hike to The Pinnacles which are really interesting rock formations in a lovely setting. Returning to the Wellington area we watched the sun set behind the city from Petone across Wellington's huge harbor. At the end of the day when he dropped me off there were hugs all around. I feel I'll always have a good friend in Wellington whenever I return.
