Maungawhau Mt. Eden is Auckland's No. 1 sightseeing spot. Come with me to the summit of the highest volcano in Auckland. 

Auckland is built on more than 50 volcanoes and the views from the top of them over the city and harbour are spectacular. Look down into the crater and walk around the rim to enjoy a 360 view over the volcanic field. As I walk to the summit, you will hear the legends and stories that have been passed through the generations. You will also learn why the volcanoes are sacred and how we are continuing to protect them to ensure their future.

    Thanks to Louise for taking us up to the crater. The view is incredible. Although we couldn't be there physically, Louise took pains to show us every view and angle possible. The sunset was magnificent! This truly is the number 1 destination for visitors to Auckland. Looking forward to a real physical visit once travel resumes.

    Mt Eden is beautiful. Wished me and my friends are on site.
    It is amazing that the volcanos are so beautiful and they seem to embrace its people, co-existing together. I heard the volcanos are mostly dormant, so it is quite safe to stay around the mountains.
