Short description

Compare the urban sights of Auckland with the bush walks, black sand beaches and Maori carvings of its rainforest neighbour


Recommended for:
City | History & culture

This full day small group tour contrasts the urban highlights of Auckland with the wildlife and wilderness of the nearby west coast rainforest. Following a pick-up from your hotel, your morning will be given over to exploring the history, sights and sparkling harbours of New Zealand’s busiest and largest city before a 30-minute drive brings you out into its surrounding wilds. Here, native birdsong will soundtrack gentle walks through the rainforest, leading you to wide, empty beaches characterised by their black, volcanic sand. Throughout the day, your knowledgeable guides will keep you educated on the region’s unique flora, fauna and historic Maori carvings before returning you to your city accommodation.
