This experience is your chance to get away from the city and grab your self a big slice of the Great New Zealand Outdoors. If you’re a nature nut, animal lover or you just love getting out for a walk among beautiful scenery this is the trail for you! .You’ll see unique trees, bush and some pretty exotic bird life. You’ll find out more about Auckland’s diverse and special eco-system, and also learn about local medicinal bush-craft. We’ve got some stunning and complicated flora and fauna here in Auckland and plenty of natural beauty to boot. You’ll get up close and personal with local nature and wildlife, you’ll stroll along beautiful golden beaches and trek across ancient coastal lava flows. After all that and once you’ve worked up a hunger we’ll shout you locally caught fish and chips on the beach with a beer or cider to wash it down. We’ll then drop you back in the city at the start point.
What You'll Get
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Takapuna Beach, Auckland Central, Auckland New Zealand
From our meeting point we’ll jump into some pre-ordered ubers and make our way across the bridge, soaking up stunning views of our harbour, city and volcanoes as we go. After a ten minute ride out of the city we’ll arrive at a small yet enchanting slice of native bush that even many locals don’t know about. It's an elevated bush walk and if we're lucky we'll start to hear and then see Tui in full voice and flight. These guys are singers and mimickers and they have quite a story! You'll learn about native trees, New Zealand bush medicine and wildlife that you may not have seen before. It's stunning natural beauty, and quite peaceful too.
After our bush walk we'll head to a beautiful beach and lovely waterside trail. You'll take in local landmarks and natural beauty including our imposing Rangitoto Volcano, our youngest at just 600 years old.
It's an intriguing coastal trail, we'll pass through old lava flows, rock pools and wait until you hear the story about the castle we pass by! Finally we'll reach lovely Takapuna beach where this time of year it's an awesome spot for a swim to cool off. We'll finish with a classic Kiwi fish and chips lunch and a beer on the beach.
