Private Coast & Rainforest walking day tour

This full day tour is for lovers of nature and hiking. Your experienced local nature guide will take you on a range of rainforest, beach and clifftop short hikes. The black sand beaches and native rainforest of West Auckland  are unique in New Zealand and this tour is a great way to experience the best they have to offer.

After pick up from your Auckland city centre hotel we have a short (30min) drive to the Arataki Visitor Centre – gateway to the coastal rainforest. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views over the rainforest back to the city and across to Auckland’s southern harbour.  The visitors centre is also home to some traditional Māori carvings and your guide will talk about them and explain their significance for the area.

Your eco-tour includes a guided short hike in an area of original native rainforest where ancient kauri trees tower over the unique trees and plants that have developed separately from the rest of the world for millions of years. Your experienced guide will explain about the local plants and animals as you stroll through the forest.

Next your guide will take you out to the west coast to enjoy a kiwi-style picnic lunch at a scenic location. After lunch walk the clifftop tracks with stunning views along the coast and out across the Tasman Sea.

During the day we go to an awe-inspiring west coast beach where you can stroll along the soft black sand beach, watch the surf waves crashing in and feel the clear ocean breeze.

As well as keeping you entertained and informed, our guides will ensure you have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and make sure there are lots of photo opportunities. We have been running tours in this area for over 39 years so you will be being looked after by the local experts.

As this is a private tour the itinerary is flexible to suit your interests. Let us know what you are keen to see or have a chat with your guide on the day.
