Auckland & Waiheke Island Holidays

Auckland, New Zealand’s celebrated ‘City of Sails’, is a sophisticated and vibrant city. Sail on the harbour, visit ancient rainforest or simply indulge in great shopping before sampling the bars, restaurants and cafés of Viaduct Harbour. Auckland is home to more yachts per head of population than anywhere else in the world and getting out and about on the water is a quintessential Kiwi experience not to be missed.

Blessed with its own sunny microclimate, beautiful Waiheke Island is a haven of award-winning wineries and gorgeous beaches. It’s only 35 minutes by ferry from Auckland, so you can easily visit for the day or alternatively stay overnight in luxurious accommodation. Board the regular hop-on hop-off bus and explore the town of Oneroa with its many boutiques and galleries, relax on the golden sands of Onetangi Beach and stop at a scenic lunch spot looking out across the bay.
