Continue further West with your knowledgeable and highly experienced guide to New Zealand's wild and rugged West Coast where you get to experience the isolation of the area. The guides walk you through an area of Auckland's coastal rainforest where they explain the local flora and fauna of the area with its giant tree ferns growing alongside picturesque streams in regenerating rainforest. You then get the opportunity to visit a magnificent rugged West Coast beach where you can stroll along and experience the uniqueness of the black sand and the clear ocean breeze.

A kiwi style picnic lunch at a scenic location, before your journey takes you to an area of untouched original rainforest with mature 1000 year old Kauri trees. New Zealand has existed for millions of years separate from the rest of the world so has evolved in isolation to produce its own unique flora and fauna - 70% of the native plants are found nowhere else in the world. The guides explain about native species as you walk amongst New Zealand's famous Kauri trees and native birds.
