Arrive in Auckland with the promise of New Zealand’s sensational landscapes and culture before you. The skyline of the city stands tall above the buildings and decorates the sky; the Sky Tower, the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere, points into the air like a decorative beacon. The scent of coffee and the calm sea breeze float through the streets. You can practically hear the boats sail along the city’s edge as masts sway in the calm waters. Your cultural adventure through New Zealand has begun, and the pulse of the country, and your excitement, is palpable.
