Mount Eden, Auckland

4.7
#2 of 53 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.

  • It is a ride that is ideal for making a clear afternoon since it's a walk of ascent to the Mount Eden and then walk through the inner Park enjoying views 360 degrees of Auckland absolutely free. On one side you see the Sky Tower of Auckland and the other the crater of an ancient volcano that took place in the city. The super recommend to have panoramic views without paying!
