What you'll see

Haere mai! Welcome to Aotearoa/New Zealand. Touch down in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland, which is the largest and one of the most vibrant cities in New Zealand. Located on the North Island, Auckland is known as the ‘City of Sails’, thanks to its two sparkling harbours. A multicultural centre for food, wine and shopping, Auckland is also home to a variety of verdant parklands and over 40 volcanoes.

Once you arrive in the city, travel to the hotel to check in, drop your bags in your room and refresh. Pick up a welcome letter from reception with some important information about the tour, before meeting your group for the first time and enjoying a delicious welcome dinner.
