No, we don’t mean Kiwi, Kea, Weka, Pukeko and Tui, even though these are five bird species that are endemic to New Zealand. We’re talking fun sports here, and the NZ Big Five are Bungy, jet boat, helicopter, quad and jet ski. Some people in the group managed to check the final two of the NZBF off their bucket lists here in Northland, they rode the sand dunes off Ninety Mile Beach yesterday and the waters of the Bay of Islands today. It was a blast, heaps of fun as a real New Zealander would say.

One of the most stunning highlights of the North Island Extension is the Kauri forest. The presence of these ancient giants silenced even the chattiest people (read: Mexicans ) for a moment. A short moment…
The group also made it to the very top of the country, Cape Reinga, a place of enormous mythical importance to the Maori. For them it is literally the end of the world, for us it was a place of outstanding natural beauty.
