Tailor-made Auckland Travel Experiences -

The City of Sails

Auckland is scenically set on a narrow strip of land that separates the Pacific Ocean from the Tasman Sea. The spectacular panorama is additionally boosted by the natural Manukau Harbour and countless fiord-like bays. Auckland is not only the economic and financial hub of the country, it is also New Zealand’s largest city. Almost a quarter of the population lives in Auckland. And a third of the Aucklanders come from Polynesia, having earned the city the nick “Polynesian capital”. Most visitors arriving to New Zealand touch down at the Auckland International Airport … and it is a beautiful place to arrive at: Stay a night or two to explore the City of Sails – another nick originating from the countless white sailing boats that pepper the harbour’s blue waters. Soak up Auckland’s graceful flair and visit the city’s many attractions. Certainly, the harbour is the first attraction to admire. Later stroll down the Victorian Parnell Street & Village with its many shops. As day fades to night, climb Mount Eden for a stunning view of the city lights. Of course, you may also decide to visit one of the beaches or islands in the Hauraki Gulf on the Pacific side. Stunningly beautiful, the movie The Piano was shot on the west coast near Karkare and Piha. A mouthful with an eyeful may be enjoyed at the 328 metres high Skytower, the tip of which accommodates a first-class restaurant. Needless to say that several other gourmet restaurants prepare sensational specialities. At only a short distance from Auckland lies the famous Coromandel Peninsula with its pristine nature and immaculate beaches. Coromandel has become popular with the Aucklanders, which has resulted in numerous weekend houses springing up. Something uniquely special may be experienced near the small town Hahai: At the Hot Water Beach you need only dig a shallow hole and wait for a few moments for it to fill with hot water to enjoy a bath - courtesy of a volcanic hot spring close to surface! Let it be said again: Auckland, City of Sails, is definitely worth staying a few days. Apart from the graceful flair and many nearby attraction, the city also boasts exquisite luxury hotels to ensure a supremely comfortable stay. Talk to our experienced team of travel consultants.
