Habitat Tours focus on NZ’s natural environment taking small groups (maximum 7 guests) on day tours from Auckland to stunning beaches and a native coastal forest. Day and night guided walks give some of the best opportunities to see and hear many of NZ’s rare and endangered birds and wildlife. We provide a delicious picnic lunch or dinner to be enjoyed while overlooking Auckland’s beautiful Gulf
