What you'll do

The Piha Explorer gives you get the freedom to set your own pace and do as you please, as we take you deep inside the remote wilderness of the Auckland Region. There is no fixed time schedule to follow, and no tour guide to keep up with.

Once we pick you up, enjoy a 45 -minute scenic drive to Piha Beach while getting to know your guide and fellow explorers. You will also learn about the local Piha area and wildlife and can use this time to ask your guide any questions you may have about Piha and what to expect. We also find ourselves talking about New Zealand history, culture, music and travel and use this time to create a relaxed and social atmosphere for everyone on the trip to get to know one another ( if you want to that is).

After we arrive at Piha, you will join a tiki tour that is designed to help you learn the surrounding area. Your guide will provide you with a map and information on Piha, along with recommendations on how to maximise your time and see all the sights.

Following your guide's recommendations, you'll hike through native rainforest, discover waterfalls, lava caves and the famous Piha black sand beach. Surfing lessons are also available if the conditions are right.

Your guide will be based in Piha and contactable at all times.

Where you'll be

The entire day trip will take place at Piha. Piha is a breathtaking remote wilderness, built on top of an ancient volcanic field. It is surrounded by lush native rainforest on one side and the rough Tasman Sea on the other. Piha has many exciting places to explore and boasts a unique diversity of nature in a very small area.
