Mount Eden, Auckland

4.7
#2 of 56 in Parks in Auckland
Reach Auckland's highest point with a hike to the top of Mount Eden, created by a dormant volcano that towers 196 m (643 ft) above sea level. Once you get to the top, take a break and enjoy dramatic full-circle views of the city below, its harbors, and the volcano's intact bowl-shaped crater. According to Maori legend, this 50 m (160 ft) deep crater was the home of Mataaho, a god who guarded secrets hidden in the earth. The moderate hike is manageable for people of most fitness levels as well as children. Pack a snack to enjoy at one of the picnic tables after your hike.

  • When you're in Auckland, you should get to Mount Eden. One has a mega view of Auckland. It's a nice walk. We had great weather so it was all the more beautiful.

  • a lovely capture of the city itself breath taking and a journey never forgotten a old historic volcano to see at large and the whole that still is visible to NZ  more »
  • Many paths and possibilities stand for a visit to this striking vantage point with almost unrestricted all-round views of the megacity of Auckland. This is where you get through well-informed and marked hiking trails or with public transport. We hanen the sporty Vxriante chosen and have wandered from down town in about 70 min high. Water and something to nibble on, you have to bring yourself, because no food is offered on the volcanic summit.
