Coast And Rainforest Walk

Offer Image
Explore the rainforests of Auckland with a trio of one-hour nature walks and a picnic lunch.

Coast and Rainforest Walk

Spend your day exploring New Zealand's epic natural beauty on this guided walking tour from Auckland. Start your day at the threshold of the coastal rainforest, greeted by the impressive Maori carvings outside of the Arataki Visitor Center. The Center's observation decks offer sweeping views of the vast, lush forest, the rugged coastline, and sparkling blue depths of the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean. This is an opportunity to pick up maps, souvenirs, or even an ice cream cone.

For those cruise guests staying in Auckland after your cruise, you can take advantage of this tour from your hotel. You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and then be on your way. Your first walk will be a leisurely stroll through the majestic rainforest. A knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the local plant life and history of the park as the cicadas sing and colorful parrots and tui birds flit around the forest. Sparkling streams will lead you to a waterfall where you can soak or swim, or simply enjoy the view.

Following your rainforest walk, stroll on the soft black sand of Piha Beach on the wild western coast. Enjoy the provided picnic lunch, then launch into your third walk where Kauri trees stretch into the sky in the original, unspoiled rainforest. The untouched flora and fauna have flourished for thousands of years; it is like stepping back in time.

This Auckland hiking tour includes a picnic lunch, round trip transportation, and refreshments. Make sure you mention any dietary requirements upon booking.
