Rangitoto teal foil print. We have taken hundreds of thousands (well, slightly exaggerated) photos of Rangitoto. Our favourite landmark when it comes to photography. We are still experimenting with the foil, but can organise foil prints in gold, silver, pink or teal. Lovely art prints.
All foil prints come with a matt and backboard. Ready to be framed.
- Size art print: 220mm x 110mm (8.66″ x 4.33″)

The Department of Conservation completed a significant restoration programme on Rangitoto Island. And its neighbour Motutapu Island. The islands are now a safe pest-free haven for precious native flora and fauna to survive and thrive.
The popular summit track climbs through the world’s largest pohutukawa forest. The peak is 259 metres above sea level, so you can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf.

Rangitoto erupted from the sea approximately 600 years ago in a series of dramatic explosions. Two episodes 10 to 50 years apart are thought to have lasted for several years each. This makes Rangitoto the youngest island in the Hauraki Gulf.
Exploring Rangitoto is a ‘must do’ day out for locals and tourists alike. A gentle climb through lava fields will lead you to the summit in approximately one hour. Allow extra time to explore the lava caves on the way back. Or have a look at the historic bach community near the wharf.
