Spot Wildlife on a Dolphin Safari
If your children love learning about different wildlife species, treat them to an exciting nature lesson with a dolphin and whale watching tour! A number of different touring companies offer your family the opportunity to leave the city behind to search the waters for bottlenose dolphins and killer whales.
Zip Line Through the Forest
Auckland is world-renowned for its beautiful rainforests. You can get a bird's-eye view of these areas on a breathtaking zip line adventure! Zip lining involves being strapped into a harness that is attached to a cord that hangs high above the forest floor. This thrilling activity is appropriate for family members eight years old and up.
Hit the Beach on Horseback
There are few better ways to take in the scenery of Auckland's many beach and forest trails than on horseback. Your travel agent can help you find a tour company that offers services for riders of any experience level.
