| We were up early and halfway
up a Dead Volcanic Island by 8.30am! It's great when jetlag works in your favour! We left our hotel at 6.30, walked to the harbour and got the 7.30 Ferry to Rangitoto Island which takes 25 minutes. The photo's don't do it justice. No matter which direction you look, the views are spectacular.
It took an hour to reach the Summit via some lava caves.
It was quite steep at the end with lots of steps to the top. The views from the top were amazing.
We walked back down which took around an hour and sat around waiting for the 12.45 ferry back to Auckland.
We headed to the museum to finish looking round. The Volcano Room was my favourite part.
