Hike along New Zealand’s dramatic west coast to see some of the country’s most charming coastline. Enjoy a full-day walking tour with sights including black sand beaches, high cliffs, an ancient forest, and unique wildlife.
Head off the beaten track to the spectacular west coast, a great hiking destination located in the Auckland region. For your first stop, visit the Arataki Visitor Centre—the gateway to the Waitakere Ranges—and take in breathtaking views across the ranges and the city.
Continue on toward the west coast, where your walking trail begins. Wind your way through the lush forest and pass by charming flora and fauna, like the famous silver fern—New Zealand’s national icon. Marvel at the mighty ancient kauri trees and panoramic vistas over the Tasman Sea.
Break for a scenic picnic lunch and freshen up before continuing your walk through the subtropical rainforest. Then walk along the coastline with magnificent black sand beaches and feel the sand beneath your toes. Later on, wander to stunning waterfalls and, if you feel like going for a swim, dive under the waterfall at the end of your guided walk.
