Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand on the North Island, is known as the “City of Sails” due to its attractive harbour, home to thousands of sailing boats, and a beautiful sight on a New Zealand vacation. It occupies a narrow isthmus between the harbour and the sea. It also has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world.

This modern city combines urban with beautiful beaches, hiking trails, islands and a rugged West Coast. For amazing views of the city during Auckland tours on a New, Zealand vacation, visit the Skytower, the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere or Mount Eden, an extinct volcano crater and the highest point in Auckland. Both have 360-degree panoramic views of the city and surrounding area.

Auckland offers excellent shopping mainly on Queen Street as do several nearby neighbourhoods such as Newmarket and Ponsonby, the latter a good place to stroll day or night for its cafes and nightlife on New Zealand tours.

On the other side of the harbour reached by a short ferry ride is Devonport, a picturesque seaside village with attractive Victorian villas. A half-hour ferry ride will take you to Waiheke Island, very popular with locals in the summer with its beaches and pretty countryside dotted with vineyards and olive groves is where you can enjoy shopping or dine in one of the many restaurants here If you like a remote location, try a trip again by ferry to nearby Rangitoto, a black lava volcanic island and totally unpopulated.
