Nestled between two harbors, Auckland is surrounded by more sandy beaches and attractive islands than any other city in the world. It's bordered by terraced volcanic hills where Maoris once lived in fortified villages. West of Auckland are vineyards, surf beaches and rainforest with reservoirs, waterfalls and hiking trails.

Calling itself "the City of Sails", Auckland is one of the best places in the world to go yachting. In fact, it's ground zero for all kinds of outdoor activities, from bushwalking to bungy jumping. It's also the largest and most multicultural of New Zealand's cities – 1/3 of the country lives in or around Auckland - with a vibrant dining scene and fabulous wines. From America's Cup sailing to experiencing the wilderness on Auckland's doorstep, you'll discover Auckland is an awesome destination.
