Wilderness Experience Nature Tour
Price : From $150

Departing every afternoon, the Wilderness Experience Nature Toour visits Piha Beach and the rainforest this nature tour is a great introduction to New Zealand nature and visits some stunning scenery of rainforest and Piha’s black sand surf beach. Easy walking tracks and dramatic coastlines are only a short drive from Auckland city centre and our experienced guides and small group size means you will be well looked after.

Your day starts with a hotel pick-up before arriving at the visitors centre at the entrance to the largest native rainforest area around Auckland. The Arataki visitors centre has dramatic panoramic views across the rainforest and both of Auckland’s harbours as well as views back to Auckland City. The visitors centre is also home to some traditional Māori carvings and your guide will talk about them and explain their significance for the area.

Continue on to the lush native rainforest where you walk the easy tracks among giant tree ferns. See and find out about the famous New Zealand silver fern, manuka and kauri trees as your guide talks about what makes New Zealand nature so unique. We also talk about the original Māori uses for some of the plants in the forest.

Move on to experience the power of the rugged west coast. Stop at a stunning viewpoint overlooking Piha beach and the Tasman Sea before going down to the black sand beach. There you get the chance to stroll along one of the most awe-inspiring beaches the world has to offer and watch the surf waves rolling in.

During the afternoon we also include a New Zealand style afternoon tea including biscuits (cookies), manuka honey and tea and coffee or juice. When time and traffic allow, you also go to see an 800 year old kauri tree.

As well as keeping you entertained and informed the guides make sure you have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and make sure there are lots of photo opportunities.
