Experience a day of Auckland’s natural contrast. See the city's best sights in the morning; in the afternoon, take a trip to the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. Explore the history of Auckland as well as its lush rainforests and black sandy beaches.

Start your tour with a hotel pickup in the morning and travel through Auckland's central business district. Pass by the city’s oldest park, the Domain, and continue through the picturesque suburb of Ponsonby, known for its historic buildings.

Head over the Harbor Bridge to Auckland's North Shore and stop in historic Devonport for a stroll on Narrow Neck beach. Then enjoy panoramic views of Auckland from the summit of Mount Victoria. Continue to Westhaven Marina, one of the largest marinas in the Southern Hemisphere. Here, visit the Auckland Fish Market and break for lunch (at own expense).

In the afternoon, journey to the Waitakere Ranges, a line of hills separating Auckland from its surf-fringed west coast. Stop at the Arataki Visitor Center, the gateway to the regional park. Take in breathtaking views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean.

Join a guided bush walk in the lush rainforest and marvel at New Zealand's famous kauri trees, giant tree ferns, and waterfalls. Stroll along magnificent coastal beaches and feel the black sand beneath your toes. After a day of exploring Auckland, your transfer drops you off at your hotel.
