Cruising to Auckland

New Zealanders are known for their love of the outdoors and sense of adventure, and Auckland - the largest metropolitan area on the North Island - is a city which truly embraces this spirit, being home to several adrenaline-pumping attractions. Among these are the likes of the famous Sky Jump and Sky Walk, neither of which are for the faint-hearted, although if you'd rather keep your feet on the ground then you'll find plenty of calmer things to do here as well.

For example, you could browse through the country's largest and most prestigious art collection at the Auckland Art Gallery, or learn about Maori culture at the Auckland War Memorial Museum - which also houses a moving exhibit dedicated to the ANZACs who participated in major global conflicts during the 20th century.

Despite being a large city, Auckland isn't the kind of place that feels particularly urban, and there are loads of natural attractions to discover here. The volcanic peaks which surround the city - such as One Tree Hill, Mount Victoria and Mount Eden - for example, can all be climbed for stunning views across the region, while the nearby volcanic islands can be explored by kayak or on other boat tours.
