Overview

After pick up from your city centre hotel you have a short (30min) drive to the Arataki Visitor Centre – gateway to the coastal rainforest. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views over the rainforest back to the city and across to Auckland’s southern harbour.  The visitors centre is also home to some traditional Maori carvings and your guide will talk about them and explain their significance for the area. 

Your eco-tour includes a guided walk in an area of original rainforest where ancient kauri trees tower over the unique trees and plants that have developed separately from the rest of the world for millions of years. Your experienced guide will explain about the local plants and animals as you stroll through the forest. 

Next your guide will take you out to the west coast to enjoy a kiwi-style picnic lunch at a scenic location. After lunch walk the clifftop tracks with stunning views along the coast and out across the Tasman Sea. 

Then walk in regenerating rainforest with giant tree ferns and palm trees growing alongside the picturesque stream to unwind by a spectacular cascading waterfall. 

During the day you go to an awe-inspiring west coast beach where you can stroll along the soft black sand, watch the surf waves crashing in and feel the clear ocean breeze. 

As well as keeping you entertained and informed your guide will make sure you have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and make sure there are lots of photo opportunities. This tour company have been running tours in this area for over 30 years so you will be being looked after by the local experts
