Art, Nature and Adventure Tours

Waiheke offers many pleasures besides food and wine. Visit some top New Zealand artists, galleries and exhibitions, sculpture and garden parks; walk in a pristine native bird reserve, an ancient volcanic field or on a scenic coastal track; or ride the EcoZip above some luxuriant New Zealand bush.

Premium Zip Wine Dine


If you would like to add a zipline adventure to your tour, we'll pick you up from Matiatia wharf, or from Oneroa Village (if you're already on the island) and transport you to the EcoZip Adventures site on Trig Hill for a flying fox zipline and guided hike experience.


Three 200m dual flying fox ziplines will fly you smoothly side-by-side with a partner, friend or relative down into a stunning tract of original and regenerating native bush (forest).


It's a scenic interpretive walk back to base, where you'll learn about local flora and fauna and the conservation of our spectacular natural environment.

Afterwards, we will pick you up and take you to three of the top vineyards on the Island, according to your preference and seasonal availability. View Waiheke vineyards »

The tour includes a platter-style lunch at one of these vineyards. The platter comes with a flavoursome assortment of meats, seafood, dips and bread. (A vegetarian option is also available, on request).

You will then be returned to your accommodation or to a late afternoon ferry back to Auckland.

Nature Tours


Stroll through beautiful native bush and along protected beaches, where you may see rare New Zealand dotterels, kereru (wood pigeons), tui, fantails, song thrushes, kingfishers and many other species. Learn about Waiheke's unique ecosystem and the environmental management issues close to Islanders' hearts.


If wide open spaces and stunning views are more to your liking, we'll take you off the beaten track, on some of Waiheke's most interesting walkways. Breathe the sea air, take in magnificent views from the cliff-tops, or picnic on a deserted beach (swimming is possible too, from late spring to late autumn (fall)).

Or explore the fascinating network of underground tunnels at Stony Batter. Along the way you'll learn about the history, folklore, architecture and culture of the Island. Walks range from an easy half-hour ramble to a two-hour adventure, where a moderate level of fitness is required.
