With a fortunate position at the top of New Zealand's North Island, Auckland boasts both the Tasman and Pacific Sea, where surfers can indulge their passion. Walkers have some of the most fabulous rainforest land to explore and foodies have the avant-garde cuisine of the modern city.
The surrounding islands are very popular for day trips and it's no wonder why. Natural conservation projects on Tiritiri Matangi are a wonderful way to preserve New Zealand's unique habitat. Superb hiking on Rangitoto Island offers scenic views on an uninhabited island.
Beautiful beaches can be found on Great Barrier Island, a largely untouched island where locals come to escape the city and relax. Be sure to test out your hiking boots and walk to the hot springs where you can take a dip. Spend your evening enjoying the fruits of the local fisherman's labour with exquisite meals prepared in the bistros of the island.
