On your arrival at the Island you will be met by your Rangitoto Guide and escorted to the 4WD road-train for a journey of discovery. Along the way you'll learn of Rangitoto's fiery past and its amazing climate that has allowed lush growth to flourish amongst the lava. Journey through the largest Pohutukawa forest in the world, a treasured fern glen and rugged lava terrain as you make your way to the base of the summit of Rangitoto. From there it's a 900m walk along a scenic boardwalk to the top. Here you'll be rewarded with 360 degree views of the Islands of the Hauraki Gulf and back to Auckland City.
Note: No shops are located on the island and it is advised that passengers take food and drinks with them, or food and beverages can be purchased onboard the vessel.
