If you’re looking for somewhere exciting to go on your next vacation, Auckland is the place to be. Why do you ask? Here are five top reasons why you should visit Auckland:

Auckland New Zealand natural beauty

The city’s natural beauty, including preserved parks, stunning gardens, sandy beaches, volcanoes, and beautiful alpine forests, will provide you with all the adventure you need: helicopter rides, hiking, motorbiking, kayaking, and bungee jumping are just a few of the popular activities within the city. Bonus: The zoo is also an exciting adventure where you can visit over 1400 animals (135 species)— many of them are native to New Zealand.

The coastlines will leave you breathless. Auckland is almost entirely enclosed by vast waters, creating amazing coastlines all around the city. As the “City of Sails,” you’ll undoubtedly notice the abundance of ports, harbors, and maritime activities.

Speaking of art, nature provides the most beautiful panoramic views everywhere you go. The Sky Tower provides the most stunning of them all. 

Bonus: You can reach all of the best destinations by leaving from Auckland. Just a few hours north of Auckland is the Bay of Islands, while in other directions, you can reach Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves, Rotorua, and the Coromandel Peninsula.
