Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and main transport hub. The region is home to some 1.5 million people and is also the largest Polynesian city in the world. Auckland’s diverse landscapes provide countless opportunities to get immersed in nature.

To the north the rolling hills of wine country meet stunning coastlines and in the south you'll find picturesque country gardens, unspoilt forest and tranquil bays to explore
Rotorua is one place where the turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are most evident. This city, on the Volcanic Plateau, has one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity and sits squarely on the Pacific Rim of Fire.

Rotorua has many attractions to get the adrenalin flowing; everything from skydiving and luging to zorbing and ziplining. You'll find the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world here - the 7-metre drop at Tutea Falls is a one-of-a-kind experience. In addition, Rotorua is home to one of New Zealand’s best mountain bike circuits.
