Description

Embark on a day trip from Auckland to witness Piha’s natural wonders, from its native rainforest to black sand beaches. Enjoy views over the Auckland Harbor from 390 m above sea level. Spot penguins, seals, and sea lions, and have a beachside picnic. Meet your group in Auckland. Relax in a Mercedes Sprinter van as you wind our way through the Waitakere ranges towards Piha. Stop at two of the most scenic, high-altitude lookouts Auckland has to offer. Upon arrival at Piha, venture to the wild black sand beach at the North and South end to explore the landscapes. Walk among towering cliffs in South Piha. Carefully navigate massive sea caves and natural tunnels surrounding the areas. Walk the loop at North Piha through the native forest, onto the beach, and explore the caves. Keep an eye out for birds such as the tui and colorful rosellas in the forest. If you are lucky, spot a seal or sea lion. As you follow your guide barefoot on a walking trail, breathe in the fresh air and embrace nature. Be prepared for a small amount of challenge when it comes to navigating rocks and waves. Recharge with healthy snacks, fresh fruit, and cold water on the way. At lunchtime, enjoy a beachside picnic setup. Grab a towel and take a dip in the waters if you feel like unwinding with a swim. Finally, head back to Auckland.
