Full description
The day gets underway at the local partner’s base in Auckland city, where you’ll receive all your gear and a safety briefing. A pleasant ride through the Wynyard Quarter provides an opportunity to test out the e-bike before you board the ferry for the short, scenic ride to Rangitoto Island.

From here, the tour begins in earnest, exploring Rangitoto, the youngest, most iconic volcano in the Auckland region. Marvel at the long, sloped walls of the volcano, tapering up to its massive cone. As you bike across the gravel paths, aided by the electric motors of your e-bikes, hear the stories of the island’s earliest settlers, Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki, who gave these islands the name of their ancestor, Peretū.

After exploring the island with your guide, enjoy a tour of the neighboring island, Motutapu-a-Taikehu, one of the oldest islands in the region, and currently Auckland’s largest working farm. After exploring the placid and stunning side of Auckland’s nearby wilderness, you’ll hop back aboard the ferry, and head back into the city center.
