Auckland’s best day tour company takes you on a full day guided eco tour to Auckland’s wild, black sand beaches and lush rainforest. Spend the day walking and relaxing in the real New Zealand while hearing the stories of our region.
You first visit the Arataki Visitor Centre – gateway to Auckland’s coastal rainforest. The breathtaking panoramic views from the sweeping decks extend from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Absorb the area’s history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard there.
Continue further west with our knowledgeable guides to the wild and rugged west coast, where you get to experience the isolation of areas such as Karekare and Piha. Walk to a beautiful cascading waterfall tucked away in the rainforest.
You then stroll on an awe-inspiring black sand beach and experience the uniqueness of the soft sand and the clear ocean breeze.
Your journey then takes you to an area of untouched original rainforest in the Waitakere Ranges with silver ferns and mature 1,000 year old kauri trees. New Zealand has existed for millions of years separate from the rest of the world so has evolved in isolation to produce its own unique plants and animals that you explore on this Auckland day tour.
