THE CITY OF SAILS

"The Land of the Long White Cloud" is familiar to most audiences through the stunning backdrops of Peter Jackson’s iconic films. Rest assured, the scenery is no less awe-inspiring in real life. A heady mix of lush tropical foliage, pounding waves, mountain highlands, snow-capped mountains and fjords juxtapose themselves against one another—the country is a sight to see beyond the silver screen. What Middle-earth does not convey is the warmth and easy-going charm of modern New Zealand life. Though not the nation’s capital (that honor goes to Wellington), Auckland is home to nearly a third of the nation's population, forming an international metropolis that nevertheless remains true to the Kiwi spirit, where world-class facilities and luxury labels are seen hand-in-hand with ancient Māori culture and a passion for the natural surrounds.
