Day by Day Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive in Auckland

On arrival in Auckland make your way to your central city hotel, the SkyCity Auckland. The rest of today is at leisure to explore the ‘City of Sails’. Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and most vibrant city, offering an exciting array of cosmopolitan experiences. Family attractions abound and the city has plenty of adrenaline for adventure lovers. Indulge in Auckland’s shopping, nightlife and unrivalled cuisine.

Day 2
Auckland Sightseeing

Full day excursion to Tiritiri Matangi. Surrender your senses to the beauty and magic of Tiritiri Matangi Island, situated in the Hauraki Gulf and only a 75 minute ferry trip from Auckland (via Gulf Harbour). From the moment you step onto the island to the moment you leave, you will be entranced by the serenade of gentle birdsong and the lush native bush.

Tiritiri Matangi is one of the world’s most successful volunteer conservation projects. It has been re-vegetated with around 300,000 native trees and consequently 12 of New Zealand’s endangered birds and three reptile species have been re-introduced. Experience a guided walk provided by the supporters of Tiritiri Matangi.

Day 3
Auckland Sightseeing

Your morning is free to explore – perhaps visit the Auckland Museum or the newly renovated Auckland Art Gallery.

This afternoon you will be joining a Wilderness Experience tour and guided nature walk. Only a 30 minute drive from downtown Auckland brings you to the Arataki Centre, perched high in the Waitakere Ranges, where the sweeping decks give breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean.

Absorb the local history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard there. Head further west to experience the power of the wild and rugged west coast. Feel the black sand beneath your feet as you stroll along some of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer.

With knowledgeable and experienced guides your eco-tour continues on to the lush rainforest where you hear native birdsong as you walk the easy bush tracks amongst New Zealand’s famous kauri trees and giant tree ferns.
