Auckland - Sightseeing Tours and Activities

With a population of around 1.45 million people, Auckland is the biggest metropolitan area in both New Zealand and Polynesia. It is actually located in the northern half of the North Island on a narrow strip of land that connects the Northland peninsula to the North Island.

Sightseeing destinations in Auckland

This huge city offers a huge variety of sightseeing opportunities, thanks to its spectacular location and the many volcanic cones that are scattered across its skyline. Here, you will be able to explore its gems and orientate yourself about this great place. You can take a tour on the sparkling waters of the Waitemata to enjoy views of downtown, the iconic Rangitoto volcanic cone and the Harbour Bridge. You can also take a ferry ride from the city to explore the beautiful Waiheke Island, which is one of the leading wine regions in New Zealand. Other places that are worth checking out include the Queen Street, historic village of Parnell, West Coast and the famous Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World.

Top tour activities in Auckland

The city is surrounded by nature and the best part is that much of it is free for you to enjoy. Here, you will have plenty of things to do here, especially outdoor recreation options, when the weather is nice.

  • Visit the Waitakere Ranges - This would begin with a scenic drive from Titirangi, which is an artistic suburb with cafes and art galleries. You will also have the opportunity to take a bush walk across trails that are replete with impressive waterfalls and streams that are great for swimming.
  • Conquer the peak of one of its volcanoes - You can drive or trek up one of the city’s many volcanic cones, such as Mount Eden, One Tree Hill or Mount Victoria, to experience panoramic views of the city.
  • Watch some whales and dolphins - One of the things that made Auckland a very popular destination is whale and dolphin watching. There are many tour operators in the city that specialize in this type of trip.

Top tour attractions in Auckland

Auckland has produced an array of attractions that are famous internationally, and here are some of them:

  • Auckland Sky Tower - Standing 328 meters high, this needle-like tower is the most prominent landmark and the highest building in the city. If you are looking for a place to snap the perfect city panorama, then its observation deck is the perfect spot to get your camera out.
  • Waitemata Harbour - The wide sweep of this harbor, which is the most prominent natural feature of Auckland, cuts the city in two. Because of this easily navigable waterway, the city became the capital of New Zealand in 1840. Though the current capital is Wellington, Auckland has remained the country’s economic center.
  • Auckland War Memorial Museum - This imposing museum is situated in a vast Neoclassical building on the highest point of Auckland Domain, commemorating the New Zealand soldiers who fought in World War I. Today, it is home to an impressive collection of artifacts that depicts the country’s history and highlights its natural heritage.
