What you can expect

Experience the natural wonders of Auckland's west coast with our afternoon nature tour to Piha beach and the rainforest. Departing daily, our experienced guides will pick you up from your hotel and take you on an unforgettable journey.

Begin your adventure at the Arataki Visitors Centre, where you'll enjoy panoramic views of the rainforest and Auckland's harbors, and learn about traditional Māori carvings. Explore the lush native rainforest, walk among giant tree ferns, and discover iconic New Zealand flora like the silver fern, manuka, and kauri trees.

Next, experience the rugged beauty of the west coast with a stop at a stunning viewpoint overlooking Piha beach and the Tasman Sea. Stroll along the black sand beach, watch the surf waves, and capture breathtaking photos.

During the afternoon, enjoy a New Zealand-style afternoon tea with biscuits, manuka honey, and tea or coffee. With over 39 years of experience, our guides ensure you have an informative, entertaining, and memorable tour.
