Auckland Harbour Bridge Climb

No reviews, be the first!

Eight lanes wide and 3,300 feet long, the Auckland Harbour Bridge is one of the most iconic symbols of the city’s skyline. Whether viewing it while sailing on Waitemata Harbour, peering up at it during a city walking tour, or spotting it in the distance from the vineyards of Waiheke Island, the Harbour Bridge is to Auckland as the Golden Gate is to San Francisco.

For most visitors, the closest they will ever get to the bridge is driving across it to the city’s north shore. Every day, however, a handful of intrepid Auckland visitors explore the upper reaches of the bridge by foot as part of the Auckland Harbour Bridge Climb, and in doing so are awarded with 360 degree views of the city which are inaccessible to the everyday visitor. As part of a 90-minute tour, participants actually walk on a narrow metal walkway that snakes its way across the bridge’s exterior while also learning about the city’s history and heritage.
