Norfolk Island Week

Hosted Tour: 9 Days 8 Nights: Departing: Wed 13thth Nov 24

Our journey starts with collection from our Whangarei homes on Wednesday. We shuttle to Auckland (1 Night) and stay near the airport, ready for our adventures the next day.

Thursday we head to the airport and check in for our Air Chathams flight to Norfolk Island (7nights). On arrival we transfer to our accommodation, where we can unpack for the next week.

Friday kicks off our island adventure, with a full day tour hosted by local guides who will take us around the island that has been home to the Pitcairn Islanders since 1865, but has a much deeper history to discover.

Saturday we explore the area immediately surrounding our accommodation, with a visit to one of the original Pitcairn homesteads and exploring the cyclorama of the infamous Mutiny on the Bounty.

Sunday takes us further back in time, delving into the island’s time as an Australian penal colony through the township of Kingston and surrounds.

Monday is set aside to individualise your Norfolk experience, with a range of options that your Tour Host can arrange for you, including taking to the water surrounding the island, hiking the various trails available, or further exploring the townships.

Tuesday is all about the food as we venture out to taste the best Norfolk has to offer. With a guided trip around island foodie hotspots, we will also learn about how the island’s unique heritage of Mutineers and their Polynesian brides has developed a distinctive cuisine. In the evening we join the Island Fish Fry – a must do for any traveller to Norfolk!

Wednesday we continue our exploration of the island, and join locals in their homes for a final night progressive dinner, sharing tables, dishes and stories.

On Thursday we farewell our island home and return to New Zealand on the afternoon flight, arriving in Auckland in the evening where we will meet our van to be returned safely home to Whangarei.

Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
