Guided Walks

A guided walk on Mangere Mountain is one of the most enriching things to do in Auckland.

Mangere Mountain first erupted 70,000 years ago – long before the arrival of humans. Our guided walking tours reveal its volcanic origins and explore the history of settlement and cultivation on its fertile slopes. Mana Whenua (local people) will be your guides, interpreting the landscape and sharing their knowledge of Māori history.


1-1.5 Hour Experience

Bookings are essential for our guided walks and prices start from $35 per person. Group rates are available and depend on the size of the group. All our walks cover the geology and formation of the mountain, and a tour of archaeological evidence of our early Maori settlement. See evidence of early habitation, food cultivation, terraced gardens and ancient food storage pits.
