Description

Embark on a gorgeous full-day excursion through the lush rainforests of New Zealand, exploring the scenic coast along your journey. Soak up this magnificent natural scenery as you trek through a rainforest with an expert guide, passing lovely waterfalls and vibrant foliage with each step you take.

After being picked up at your hotel, your adventure begins by meeting your guide at the Arataki Visitor Centre, just a short drive from downtown Auckland. From here you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views that extend from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Listen as your guide details the area’s history and feel free to admire the traditional Maori carvings found here.

Head into a regenerating rainforest where your experienced guide teaches you about the giant tree ferns growing alongside picturesque streams. Snap pictures before a spectacular cascading waterfall and then venture on to an awe-inspiring west coast beach where you can stroll along the soft black sand and feel the clear ocean breeze.

Take a break from your trek for a kiwi-style picnic lunch. Once you’re refueled, head back into another section of the rainforest where 1,000-year-old kauri trees tower over the forest floor. As your tour comes to an end, keep your eyes peeled for a number of exotic bird species who are known to be flying among the treetops.

It was a wonderful journey to us. Our guide Jeff is keen to introduce us most of interesting things during the tour. He is very knowledgeable. It was a fun day though it had been raining all day.

Got to see the beautiful west coast of Auckland from the rainforests to the black sand beaches. The bush walks were great and i learned a lot of interesting facts about the area and NZ culture. the picnic wasnt really a picnic, we stopped at a tiny shop with limited choices so that was disappointing but overall would recommend the tour. Bush and Beach was the best tour company Ive gone with in NZ
