Travel from central Auckland to its close-by natural beauty, the Waitakere Ranges Regional Parklands. Experience everything from lush rainforests to beaches with black sand on this guided afternoon tour.

Start your journey with a pickup from your hotel and leave downtown Auckland behind you. After a short drive, arrive at the Arataki Visitor Center, the gateway to the Waitakere Ranges. These ranges separate Auckland from its surf-fringed west coast, offering 155 miles (250 km) of walking and tramping tracks.

Here, take in the breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Learn about the local history and admire the magnificent traditional Maori carvings that stand guard there.

Continue your tour with a guided bush walk in the lush rainforest and marvel at New Zealand's famous kauri trees & giant tree ferns

Then experience the power of Auckland's wild and rugged west coast. Feel the black sand beneath your feet as you stroll along some of the most awe-inspiring beaches New Zealand has to offer. After your wilderness experience, be dropped off at your Auckland hotel.

We went on three tours with Bush & Beach. All of their guides are very knowledgeable, and provide great customer service. They go out of their way to make sightseeing really fun. The tours are small and feel more personal.
