Combine your ferry trip to Rangitoto Island with a guided tour of the island on our 4WD road-train.Find out more about this unique volcano from our knowledgeable guides who provide fascinating commentary on the island's fiery past. You'll journey through rugged lava crops and native bush, while our guide talks to you about the history and geology of the island. The tour can only reach the base of the summit where it's a short walk to the summit along a wooden boardwalk with steps to the very top. After taking in the panoramic views, you rejoin the tour vehicle for the return trip to the wharf.

If you enjoy bushwalking, photography and extinct volcanos, then this is a must do. Starts off with a half hour or so boat trip across Auckland harbour then a tractor hauls your carriage almost to the summit of the volcano. (So what if it was...More

This was our first visit to Rangitoto so we decided to do the island tour. The ferry operaters weren't overly friendly, our ferry was due to leave at 12.15 and while we were waiting for our full group to arrive they told us that if...More

The half day excursion includes the ferry trip to the island and an informative tour to the top, and around part of the coastline. To see the crater and highest point a short walk up a well-maintained boardwalk completes the adventure. The Island is predator-free...More
