The most unique things to do in Auckland

Auckland is full of unique experiences and attractions ready to give your city break that unforgettable VIP edge. Fringed by bountiful blue harbor waters that crest into a coastline and expand out into shimmering ocean, Auckland has always been a top boating spot – for a luxury boating experience, book a private harbor dining cruise with one of the large white yachts, and sip champagne as you gaze across the aquamarine waters. Splurging shoppers, meanwhile, can treat themselves in Auckland’s high-end boutiques – including Louis Vuitton and Prada – on central Queen Street. Explore Auckland’s nearby snowcapped hills and sloping, abundant vineyards in style, and book an inclusive helicopter trip to the adjacent Waiheke Island. Here, you can get dropped off at one of the vineyards – such as Poderi Crisci – and enjoy private luncheons with vintage wine tasting.

Best ways to get around Auckland

Auckland does have a wide and extensive public transport network – including trains and ferries – which will get you around the central city and throughout the surrounding suburbs. But for a more relaxing means of Auckland city transport, cruise around by taxicab – these can be hailed on the central streets, or booked from your hotel. If you’re after a luxurious and utterly carefree means of transport, check out the private chauffeur companies in Auckland – many upscale hotels offer private limo/town car service, too.
