Travel Tips for visiting Auckland

Starting point of a trip to New Zealand, Auckland is its largest city and can be visited by ferry, against a backdrop of volcanoes. The historical district of Parnell with its colonial houses, and Ponsonby where you can find bars and trendy restaurants. Don't miss the Sky Tower for a panoramic view of the city. Enjoy a visit to the Auckland Zoo or Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World where you will discover the full range of New Zealand's wildlife.

Auckland has many sights to see. Nature lovers can visit Rainbow's End Theme Park, Waiwera Infinity Thermal Spa Resort's natural hot springs, Crystal Mountain's gallery of precious stones and minerals or Auckland Zoo.
Be sure to visit the Atlantic Encounter, which is dedicated to exploring the Atlantic, Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World (an aquarium).

Also of interest is the Auckland Harbour with its America's Cup facilities, the Queen Street area with its many shopping, dining and accommodation establishments and the Sky Tower.
The Auckland Museum with its collection of Maori art and the Auckland War Memorial are worth a visit.
Although it is not the capital of New Zealand, Auckland is a big city. The largest city in the country, located on the North Island, it is surrounded by majestic extinct volcanoes on one side and magnificent pages on the other. It is a concentrate of culture, beautiful landscapes and history that travelers discover here. Its Maori name, Tamaki Makaurau, which means city of lovers, finds its place here with its sumptuous bays, its charming harbor and its arable land for which the lovers of Auckland have fought for centuries.

Water is everywhere, lining the beaches and small islands such as Waiheke Island, punctuated by vineyards and often deserted ribbons of fine sand. The city also boasts a vibrant cultural life, and you'll want to check out its restaurants and wine bars. It is also home to fascinating museums such as the Auckland Museum, which allows you to learn more about Maori and South Pacific Island culture, or the Auckland Art Gallery, which displays many works from the colonial period.

Auckland may be a large metropolis, but it is also and above all turned towards nature. At Hot Water Beach, you can go swimming in the geothermal springs while enjoying the magnificent beaches. We will not miss either to visit the volcanic field, from where the view on the city is just breathtaking. The same goes for Mount Eden, the highest volcanic cone in the region, where a 360° panorama over the isthmus and the bays of Auckland leaves visitors speechless. In this urban environment where one is never far from the beaches or hiking trails, city life seems much more peaceful than elsewhere, bathed in sunshine and lulled by a culture with Polynesian influences.
