Discover the significance of the dormant volcano Maungawhau (Mount Eden), which stands proudly above Auckland City. Once a thriving pā (Māori strategic stronghold), your Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei kaiarahi (guide) will bring the mountain to life with stories, passed down through generations, as you explore the terraces and ascend the mountain.
At the mountain summit, the highest geographical point in Auckland, views of the Manukau and Waitematā harbours, Rangitoto Island and beyond will take your breath away. Hear the story of how Auckland CBD came to stand where it is today, and the historical tale of how the mountain came to be.
Enjoy an included light morning/afternoon tea as well as bottled water.
