Jour 1

Spend the day in Auckland

Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is set between 3 beautiful harbours and dotted with 48 extinct volcanic cones. Whether you want relaxation, retail therapy, art and culture, or an escape into nature, Auckland will not disappoint.

Head out on a ferry to hike the island volcano of Rangitoto; or explore the wineries and art galleries of Waiheke Island. Try harbour activities like sailing an America’s Cup yacht, kayaking or jet boating.

Nature lovers should head west to the Waitakere Ranges and rugged black-sand beaches. Visit natural wonders like the Karekare Falls, and Lion Rock at Piha Beach.

Alternatively, you may like to indulge in a little inner-city culture. Enjoy the designer shops and delectable cafes of downtown Auckland, and visit the Auckland Museum and Auckland Art Gallery.

In the evening stay out and experience Auckland's buzzing nightlife at Britomart, the Viaduct and Wynyard Quarter downtown, edgy and risqué K-Road, or the nearby trend-setting suburbs of Ponsonby and Parnell.
