39 the Strand, Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand
Explored Auckland and further? As well as having great city highlights, Auckland is the perfect home base for a wide range of days tours that you can organize and self-drive yourself or book through a reliable provider.
Climb a volcano
Here in Auckland, you have plenty of volcanoes to choose from – around 50 in fact. Spend time tackling one (or many) of them, and experience the incredible views from their peaks. If you’re up for the exercise, we recommend Maungawhau, Mt Eden. It’s the highest volcano in Auckland, and gives you breathtaking views of the inner city that photos will not do justice.
Stop to smell the roses
Sometimes we get so caught up filling our holidays with attraction after attraction that we forget to pause and appreciate the little things. Why not stop for a moment, let time slow, leave that purse and activity-filled itinerary at your hotel and enjoy a day smelling the roses? Dove-Myer Robinson Park, often referred to as Parnell Rose Garden, is free, pretty and is the perfect setting for another beautiful day in Auckland. Bring your phone or camera; you’re bound to take some great pictures.
Time to look at things from a different perspective
After that day of bliss, let’s kick things up a notch. You may want to pack spare underwear for this next activity, especially if you’re afraid of heights. Trust us though; it’s an experience you’re going to love! A staggering 328 metres off the ground, the Sky Tower is epic. You have the choice to take in great views indoors, or put on that brave face and head outside for a Sky Jump. Yes, that is exactly what it sounds like; you will jump off the building. Good luck.
Check out a cool bridge
Still seeking that rush that comes from doing crazy gravity-defying activities? We’ve got you covered. If you’re looking for a healthy dose of adrenaline, you can head to the Auckland Harbour Bridge. How daring you decide to be once you get there is totally up to you. If you want to ease into the terrifying activities, perhaps begin with a fun stroll/climb to the top.
Had enough of the pretty sights for now? Great. Attach yourself to a bungy cord and lean in. Bungy jumping off the bridge is an activity you won’t soon forget. If you’re not afraid to muck up that hairdo of yours, you can also choose to bungy jump and have your head dip in the water. Refreshing.
We are always needing vehicles to be returned to our Auckland Airport location. Often these come with very reduced costs, so if you are travelling from one of our Southern locations then have look and see if there are any cars we are wanting to relocate, you could save $100's in flights and car rental fees if you grab one of our cars.
You can also look for discount and promo codes, these can reduce the rental cost
