Experience a boutique nature tour to Tawharanui discovering some of New Zealand’s unique and rare wildlife including the kiwi; walk through native forests, enjoy stunning scenery and coastlines with experienced nature guides. (Note, we see kiwi on 80% of our tours).
Visit the best spots for getting that great photo and the out-of-the way places to enjoy the great outdoors.
Our day/night tour includes a gourmet picnic dinner – delicious food is a must when out enjoying this beautiful destination.
Your tour includes transportation to and from Auckland central city.
Tours are small and intimate taking a maximum of 7 on any one tour; we believe the best way to experience the natural side of Auckland is in small groups.
