Rangitoto:Volcano Hike…

Off the coast of Auckland is Rangitoto. It was once an active volcano and now is dormant. Buy tickets and take a ferry in the morning from Auckland to Rangitoto island and hike for the day until 3pm…if you miss the last ferry at 3pm you will not be able to get back to the mainland! Be sure to bring lots of water and snacks because it is hot on the volcano and there are no food stands on the island. 
The hike to the top of the volcano is absolutely wonderful and the weather is usually warm. Along the trail there are many different types of birds on the island that sing beautiful songs. 
Once at the top of the volcano you can see the crater (now covered in trees) a view of Auckland as well as a few surrounding islands.
