DescriptionA 30-minute drive from downtown Auckland brings you to the Waitakere Ranges, a ridge of hills separating Auckland from its surf-fringed west coast. Here the sweeping decks give breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Absorb the local history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard there. Head further west and experience the power of the wild and rugged west coast. Feel the soft, black sand beneath your feet as you stroll along some of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer. With your knowledgeable and experienced guide, your eco-tour continues with an easy walk in the lush rainforest where native birdsong fills the air as you walk the easy bush tracks amongst New Zealand’s famous kauri trees and giant tree ferns. Because New Zealand has been cut off for millions of years from the rest of the world, it has evolved its own unique flora and fauna. Seventy percent of our native plants are found nowhere else in the world.
