What to know before you fly to/from Auckland?

There’s really no wrong time of year to visit this beautiful city. Summer is sunny and mild, and while winter can be rainy, the city has no shortage of galleries, museums or cosy bars and pubs.

If you’re booking flights to Auckland you’ll be happy to know that walking is one of the best ways to see the city up close, given its smaller size compared to other world cities. Hot tip for public transport is to get an AT HOP card, a prepaid travel card.

Auckland is also a foodie’s delight, with incredible restaurants, wineries, and great coffee just about everywhere you go.

Head beyond the city and you'll find an array of peaceful suburbs featuring wooden houses lined along leafy streets. With numerous green covered peaks, beautiful parks and million dollar views, it's little wonder why life in Auckland is regularly rated amongst some of the best in the world. Rural areas on the city's outskirts are where you'll find the typical peaceful and green scenery New Zealand is famous for. From sea to city to country, Auckland really does have it all.
