Explore the volcanic terrain of Rangitoto Island aboard a 4WD tractor-pulled tram on this half-day guided tour. Depart Auckland for Rangitoto on a ferry ride across the Hauraki Gulf, and be rewarded with 360-degree views of the water and city skyline after a short walk to the island’s summit.
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 knowledgeable guides who provide fascinating commentary on the island's fiery past.
On your arrival at the island, you will pass under the hand carved waharoa (gateway) then make your way to the parked explorer tour vehicle where your ranger guide will greet you. Once on board, you'll journey through rugged lava crops and native bush, while your guide talks to you about the history and geology of the island. The tour will take you to 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, ride back for the return trip to the wharf in time to catch your ferry back to Auckland.
