"Coast To Coast" Tour
The ultimate Auckland discovery tour for both visitors and locals alike.
Coast To Coast takes you on a journey across the “True” Auckland City showing everything a city of close to 2 million people offers.
Auckland is unique in it’s proximity to both the Tasman & Pacific Oceans, and this tour lets you discover both in a truly special way, integrating parts of Auckland’s famous Coast-to-Coast Walkway.
Beginning on the shores of the Manukau Harbour, we learn about its colourful past, future potential and how the West Coast has been treated over the last 150+ years.
Passing the rejuvenated waterfront of Onehunga, where Auckland’s largest port once lay, you will see how the Manukau is being reborn.
The history and future knowledge doesn’t stop there and having passed historical landmarks and award winning urban development projects, you will arrive at the foothills of Maungakiekie/One Tree Hill within Cornwall Park.
Hold on tight, for you will unleash the full power of your Inokim OX E-Scooter for an ascent to the summit of Maungakiekie/One Tree Hill for arguably the best views of Auckland City.
From here we can see the summit of Maungawhau/Mt Eden for where we will summit and enjoy a picnic lunch provided by your guide overlooking the breath-taking views of the City centre and Waitemata Harbour.
Where to next is your choice, to either visit Auckland Domain and the Winter gardens, or dive into the city via the Pick Cycle way.
Over 30kms later, you will be at the water’s edge in the Viaduct harbour, having crossed from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean for where our journey ends and we dip our hands in the waters of the Waitemata.
You will gain a true appreciation of Auckland City via this tour, and see the East, West & everything in between
This tour does require an extra level of fitness and riding confidence when compared to our “Sea To Summit” & “Waterfront Cruise Tour”.
With an average run time of approximately 5 ½ hours, this tour is described as a full day, private tour for your enjoyment.
This tour is a one-way format with a mini-coach collecting you from your inner-city accommodation and dropping you at the Manukau Harbour starting point. Please ensure anything you bring on the tour can be carried by you.
