Puketi Twilight Walk – Tour Description

Discover the dark secrets of Puketi Forest, the ancient kauri rainforest (15,000 hectares) close to the Bay of Islands. With over 360 indigenous species of plants, this subtropical rainforest is one of the most diverse in New Zealand. This intimate guided tour (max 6 people) takes you into the forest at twilight where you experience the transition from day to night. Listen to the bird song as the tuis, the fantails and the kukupa settle for the night, while the nocturnal moreporks and kiwi awaken. Feel the draft of the bats flying overhead and discover the creepy and crawly insects that are active at night.

Experienced guides with a passion for conservation share their stories and knowledge: learn more about the unique flora and fauna. Discover what’s threatening New Zealand’s subtropical rainforests: possums, stoats, ferrets and kauri dieback and what we can do to protect the eco system.

Review from Tripadvisor

One of a kind guided walk in a wild rain forest
This was an unexpected full on adventure! Walking into the forest just on dusk, anticipation growing with every step, soon we have found ourselves in the middle of ancient rain forest surrounded by night wild life. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and looked after us every step of the way. We loved it! Especially wild wetas and hearing wild kiwi calling! Would recommend it even on a rainy day. Great way to connect to the ancient nature.
