Tips from locals
If you're a visitor or local, Rangitoto is a must. Take the ferry from Devonport, walk to the summit then take swim at the beach before the ferry home.
Fantastic day trip - easy from Auckland - gets you into nature, sea, and a unique geological experience walking lava trails and pathways past historic quaint baches (kiwi style beachside houses). At the top - wide open vistas.
Take a ferry straight from Devonport to explore this stunning landmark..all day hike and amazing views
You can ferry across the harbour and walk to the top if this uninhabited symmetrical island volcano that is covered in indigenous Pohutukawa trees for a great view of the gulf and surrounding islands.
Walk (or take the 'bus') up this iconic Auckland Volcano. Great geology and botany, a lovely day walk, historical houses, awesome view of Auckland City from the top. Lovely native bird life too.
