200 metres from the top of Rangitoto is the best detour on your way to the Summit – lava caves! Bring a torch to navigate the twisting tunnel hollowed out from flowing lava. From the Summit Track, follow the signposted Lava Caves Track for 15 minutes. The walk from the Rangitoto Wharf to the lava caves to the summit will take approximately 1.75 hours one way.
