Mount Eden Summit


At 196 m, this is the highest point and highest volcano in Auckland and the views will most definitely leave you on a high too. From the summit, only 5km from downtown Auckland, you will get unparalleled and unobstructed 360-degree panoramas of Auckland and long as the rain stays away!

The best part - it’s an easy 2km walk that will take you around 1 hour to complete, so don’t worry about having to don your full hiking gear. When you’re finally at the summit, you will be greeted by a giant crater. Legend has it that a deity of some sort lives inside it and guards the secrets of the Earth.

The last eruption was about 15,000 years ago, leaving a crater 50m deep.
