Visiting Aukland, New Zealand is a great experience because of the sheer beauty of the entire country and this volcanic land with islands on the outskirts. Many destinations in the area are distant from one another, so it is wise to rent a car to get from spot to spot. First, you will want to visit the iconic island of Rangitoto and look for the cone... just ask the locals. Then you can go off to explore and enjoy the Fullers Volcanic Explorer tour. This is a magnificent ferry ride on the Polynesian seas across the beautiful harbor. Also be sure to get a good walk through parts of the largest and most stunning forest in New Zealand, the Pohutukawa forest which is replete with caves of lava formed by the volcanoes.
The largest volcano in Aukland is Mount Eden, standing 196 meters in height. Many people enjoy hiking to the summit or biking up to it. The great reward is the luminescent and shining view which has to be seen to be understood, but breathtaking is an appropriate description. You won't be able to drive up the mountain though. Enjoy the brisk exercise. Since this volcano formed approximately 25,000 years ago, there are amazing crater formations which create a space for rich green lands of parks which you are welcome to explore. One thing is certain. You will be walking, hiking and biking quite a bit to get to see all of Mount Eden and catch the myriad and stunning volcanic formations which are awe inspiring indeed.
