Rangitoto Day Trip

We’re embarking on an epic day trip to Rangitoto Island, and you’re invited! Just a short ferry ride from Auckland, this adventure is the perfect escape from the city hustle. And the best part? It’s all organized by LyLo, starting with a meetup at the reception.

Rangitoto, Auckland’s youngest and most iconic volcanic island, offers breathtaking panoramic views of Auckland, unique lava caves, and the world’s largest Pohutukawa forest. We’ll hike to the summit, explore the caves, and enjoy the stunning scenery that makes Rangitoto a must-visit.

Don’t worry about packing lunch; we’ve got the picnic sorted. Let us know in advance if you have any dietary restrictions.

So, if you’re up for a day of adventure, stunning views, and good company, Rangitoto Island is the place to be. Remember, it’s just a hop from the city but a whole different world. Let’s make your day unforgettable!
