Helicopter Tours of New Zealand’s Bay of Islands with The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs
April 22, 2009By: Mary Winston Nicklin

Kauri Cliffs

Experience the dramatic coastline around Matauri Bay by air, and capture the beauty of the Bay of Islands, Ninety Mile Beach and Tane Mahuta (New Zealand's largest Kauri Tree) by private helicopter. The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs has its own six seater Eurocopter 130 - B4 so you can tailor a flight to suit your own requirements. Set on 6,000 acres near Matauri Bay, Northland, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is a luxury lodge favored by the international jetset laying low in New Zealand. With spectacular 180-degree panoramas over the Pacific, The Lodge boasts three secluded beaches, two Astroturf tennis courts, an infinity swimming pool, and a spa with a fully equipped fitness center. The par 72 championship golf course has an unparalleled clifftop setting. From The Lodge's scenic setting, guests can take boat excursions to the Cavalli Islands, go snorkeling or deep-sea fishing, and even hunt for wild boar. (The Lodge can arrange hunting with a gun, bow, or, in true Kiwi fashion, mano-a-mano with a knife.)
