Private Shore Excursion - The Giants and Tiny Dwarfs of the Bay of Islands

During this tour you will experience an encounter with mighty prehistoric giants that only a couple of centuries ago dominated the vast forests of the North Island of New Zealand.

You will see amazing Kauri – our bewitching giants...

... and tiny and defenseless glow warms which bring to the darkness of the underground caves a mysterious bluish glow of an endless starry sky…
