What to Expect
Travel reference:

Discover the wilderness of the West Coast with this excellent-value experience!

Running every afternoon from Auckland, the Wilderness Experience will give you a great introduction to New Zealand nature and guide you to some stunning scenery of rainforest and beaches. Starting with pick-up from your hotel in Auckland, you'll head south-west to Arataki visitors centre, the entrance to the rainforest. From here you will enjoy dramatic panoramic views across the rainforest as well as get to see some traditional Maori carvings.

From here you will continue on to the lush rainforest walking along the easy tracks among giant tree ferns. You will see and find out about the famous New Zealand silver fern, manuka and kauri trees as your guide talks about what makes New Zealand nature so unique.

Then you'll move on to the rugged west coast. First stopping at a stunning viewpoint overlooking Piha beach and the Tasman Sea before going down to the black sand beach where you will get the chance to stroll along the beach and watch the the surf waves rolling in.

During the afternoon, you will enjoy a New Zealand style afternoon tea including biscuits (cookies), manuka honey, tea and coffee or juice. Afterwards it is time to head back to Auckland, exhausted but fulfilled following this epic afternoon.
