Day Trips From Auckland | Suggested Itinerary

After a late-morning pickup at your Auckland hotel, we’ll drive you in one of our air-conditioned luxury vehicles to the coast to begin your West Auckland sightseeing tour. We travel west through Titirangi village and our first stop is the Arataki Visitor Centre (Pathways to Learning) at the gateway to Auckland’s famous west coast. The centre has dramatic views of the Manukau Harbour and is a great introduction to the stories and secrets of the Waitakere Ranges: 16,000 hectares of diverse sub-tropical rainforest, native bush  and unique wildlife on Auckland’s doorstep, filled with well-worn hiking tracks.

Driving through the Waitakere Ranges you’ll see panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea and huge expanses of the Manukau Harbour.

Depending on our itinerary for the day, we can walk along either of the rugged Karekare or Piha beaches. Karekare Beach was made famous in the Oscar award-winning movie The Piano, and Piha attracts surfers from all over the world.

Not quite ready for our tour to end yet? Don’t worry; there’s more. We can also incorporate a trip out to thrilling Muriwai to check out the black sand, huge surf and the gannet colony. About 1,200 pairs of gannets nest here from August to March each year along the cliffs.

Conclude your day trip with a return to Auckland and drop-off at your hotel. You choose the tour and we drive and guide: it’s that easy.
