Known locally as The City of Sails, Auckland is set beside two busy harbors and wherever you are, the sea is only 30 minutes away. The coast is dotted with idyllic islands, while inland scenic hiking trails take you toward dormant volcanoes, endless sandy dunes or lush green fields. On the water, kite surfing, jet skiing, and windsurfing are popular with sports-loving visitors, or you can explore beneath the waves on a shark experience or dolphin swim. To unwind completely, sit back on a harbor cruise for a spectacular view of the city and surrounding coastline.
