Auckland

Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and ranked as one of the most livable in the world. Sprawling over a narrow isthmus between the Waitemata Habour and Manukau Harbour many are surprised to see rainforest covering the surrounding hills. 

All flights inbound and outbound to the United States flow through Auckland's airport. As a melting pot for the country, Auckland offers a range of great food options. Island day-trips are recommended in addition to visiting a few favorite spots in the vibrant city-center.

Customer reviews

What a fabulous itinerary you made for us. It was perfect!

Wonderful country, delightful people, delicious food, and amazing scenery like no other. I guess our only major complaint is that we didn't have longer to see more of the country! You really planned it well for us. It felt balanced in the way of activities, driving days, photo opportunities, even some R&R in the afternoons.

Highlights Of The Trip: Getting off the plane in Queenstown – overwhelmed with the beauty. The boat ride in Queenstown to experience the expansiveness.

The drive from Queenstown to Franz Joseph - the mountains and glacier lakes that went on forever. Our lunch spot that day at a campsite on a lake. Abel Tasman: this is where I want to return and spend a week to hike the entire trail. Spent the day biking in Napier to wineries.
