Tours from Auckland
City of Sails
For many Auckland is the landing point for starting your New Zealand Adventures. Home to almost a quarter of New Zealand's population it is a bustling modern urban city.
Known as the City of Sails for the share number of sailing boats seen on its harbour, Auckland is a beautiful city built around the Waitemata Harbour. An absolute must-do for those with more than a day or two is a trip to one of the close Islands such as the obvious volcano, Rangitoto, or Waiheke Island famous for its beaches and wineries. The menacing Rangitoto volcano is long since dormant and can be easily climbed in a day for spectacular views over the harbour and city. Auckland itself is built on 53 dormant volcanos.
Heading further afield the wild west coast beaches of Piha and Murawai are well worth a day trip - they are known for their incredible black sand and massive surf.
Perhaps the biggest criticism of Auckland is that it is extremely spread out making getting around it to the many different markets, inner city beaches, nightclubs and attractions often quite difficult.
