Highlights
    What to Expect
    We pick you up at your Auckland City accommodation around 9.30ish and head out to the amazing Waitakere Ranges covered in lush sub-tropical rainforest and sitting on the wild West Coast, Tasman Sea. On the way we take in the Arataki Visitor Center where the park rangers manage the Waitakere Regional Park. Amazing views over the forest canopy and loads of information about Maori and European settlement of the area. A short drive then to magical Karekare where we take a 15 minute walk to the magnetic, volcanic, black iron-sand beach and surf followed by a close up look at the two sets of waterfalls. You'll see native Kauri, Rimu & Pohutokawa trees, Manuka (honey) bush, Nikau palms and Punga 'Silver Fern' trees.

    Next a visit to a hilltop lookout point where it's possible on most days to see both sides of the country in an amazing 360 deg' panorama.

    After all that fresh air & exercise next stop is lunch. Time to sit, relax & enjoy your 'open menu main course' lunch (included) along with wine tasting at a small, family run, award wining winery restaurant.

    In the afternoon sample your choice of gold medal and trophy winning wines on a personalised wine tasting tour of an interesting mix of three family owned & operated winery/vineyards.

    Because we don't all like the same wines this tour does not always visit the same wineries in the afternoon. We do our best to use our nearly 20 years of experience to select these wineries based on your tastes and interests.

    We drop you at your hotel around 5.00ish...

    Please note this tour involves approx' 40 minutes beach & track walking suitable for people with an average fitness level.

    Please wear comfortable shoes or sandals and appropriate clothes for the weather on the day, 'layers' is a good idea. Sun block and hat are a must in summer.

    Auckland Wine Trail Tours is an official Auckland Regional Parks Approved Operator.
