Auckland Travel Guide

Why? Most who visit New Zealand travel to Auckland because it is the country's largest city with a relaxed lifestyle. It is also one of the world's most beautiful cities, surrounded by water and spread out across verdant green belts, making a holiday in Auckland a very pleasant experience.

When? Anyone contemplating a holiday in Auckland should be prepared to get wet, not only because the city is built around water, but because rain is common all year round, particularly drenching in winter. Temperatures, however, are mild to warm throughout the year. Summer is the recommended time to travel to Auckland.

Who for? Being a city of multi-cultural immigrants many people holiday in Auckland to spend time with family members. Sailors are in their element with an Auckland holiday, the city being a major yachting centre. Generally, anyone who enjoys a relaxed urban environment with the added bonus of waterfront activities will relish an Auckland holiday.
