The magical places we visit will have you never wanting to leave as you discover New Zealand wildlife, rain forests and bush, breathtaking landscapes, stunning coastlines and beaches - all so close to Auckland.
We have four tours for you to choose from:

Tawharanui is home to many of New Zealand's native and endemic birds, many endangered. The stunning white sandy beaches and marine reserve to stroll along, explore or take a swim. A guided walk will introduce you to this nature wonderland. Tour includes a delicious picnic lunch.

Tawharanui - Day/Night Tour - Departure 2.00pm and returning to Auckland city at 11pm (times vary with season)
This tour offers all that the day tour offers plus a guided night walk to discover New Zealand's nocturnal wildlife including the kiwi (note we see kiwi around 70% of the time), the morepork (NZ owl) and weta.
A delicious picnic dinner is provided to enjoy while overlooking the ocean and outlying Little Barrier Island with the sunset as a backdrop.

Waitakere Ranges - Full Day Tour - discover the wild west coast of Auckland, we visit a rainforest with a huge variety of New Zealand's flora - native trees (1000 year old kauri trees), tree ferns, palm trees, mosses. A short drive to Bethells Beach where we walk giant sand-dunes, visit a lake and stunning coastline with time to stroll the beach and enjoy the landscape. The final stop is Muriwai beach with sensational views and home to a gannet colony where between August and April the gannets reside to breed before heading back to Australia.
A delicious picnic lunch is provided.

Waitakere Ranges - Half Day Tour - If time is short then a 5 hour tour will give the visitor an introduction to what the wild west coast offers - rainforest, lake, sand-dunes and beach.
