Description

Experience a day of contrasts - combine an Auckland city highlights tour in the morning with a unique Wilderness Experience in the afternoon.

Auckland is set on 52 dormant volcanic cones and between two harbors, the sparkling Waitemata and the brooding Manukau. Known as the City of Sails, it's New Zealand's largest and busiest city. The morning tour is a journey of discovery designed to explore the history and sights as well as see how Aucklanders live and play. Watch out for Queen Street, Auckland University, the inner park known as Domain, picturesque Posonby, Harbor Bridge, North Shore, Mount Victoria, Westhaven Marina, the Auckland Fish Market, and the Viaduct Harbor.

In the afternoon, take a 30-minute drive from downtown Auckland to the Arataki Center at the Waitakere Ranges, the gateway to the rainforest, for panoramic views of the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Absorb the local history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard there.

Then, head further west and experience the power of the wild and rugged west coast. Feel the soft, black sand beneath your feet as you stroll along some of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer.

With your knowledgeable and experienced guide, continue on with an easy walk in the lush rainforest. Hear native birdsong as you walk the easy bush tracks among New Zealand's famous kauri trees and giant tree ferns.
