4 Day Island, Coast & Rainforest Encounter

4 Day Island, Coast & Rainforest Encounter

Auckland is full of things to see and do, where stunning natural beauty goes hand in hand with big city sophistication.

Join a multi-award winning, eco-cultural tour operator for a full day coast & rainforest experience. This morning you will be collected from your hotel and travel out west to the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. Here you’ll enjoy breathtaking sweeping views that extend from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Knowledgeable and experienced guides will walk you through the coastal rainforest and explain the local flora and fauna. Stroll along the black sands of an awe-inspiring beach before enjoying a picnic lunch in a unique location. Your journey then takes you to an area of untouched genuine rainforest with mature 1000 year old Kauri trees. Learn about New Zealand’s unique native plants as you walk amongst the famous kauri trees and native birdlife. You will be returned to your hotel at about 5pm.

Make your way to the Downtown Ferry Terminal (5-10 min walk) to board your ferry for the 25 minute cruise to Rangitoto Island, a 600 year old volcano that boasts a unique landscape of rugged lava crops, lush native bush and sandy coves. On arrival your ranger guide will greet you & commence the tour of the island. The vehicle can only reach the base of the summit and from here, a short walk along a wooden boardwalk will take you the very top where you can take in the 360 degree panoramic views. Allow 4-5 hours for this excursion and it it is a good idea to bring a bottle of water & snack with you as well as sunhat, sunscreen and your camera of course!

The ‘City of Sails’ is the main gateway to the rest of New Zealand nestled between two harbours and 48 volcano cones, this cosmopolitan city will delight even the most discerning traveller. Auckland's blend of islands, rainforest, Polynesian culture, glistening harbours and modern city environment creates an unbelievable lifestyle that is ranked amongst the highest in the world. It provides visitors with so many wonderful experiences, plenty within easy reach of the downtown city centre.

Tony from Bush & Beach was excellent! Very knowledgeable without being too overbearing or prescriptive, good history of the area and how things have developed over the years.
