Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour

Inspired by New Zealand's landscape and culture and boasting panoramic views of Waitemata Harbour, this beautifully designed hotel is a true landmark destination. Located on the busy waterfront, in the Viaduct area, the U-shaped hotel sits out over the water and is decorated in a striking modernist style. The hotel offers 104 chic yet luxurious bedrooms and suites. All feature private balconies, floor to ceiling windows and oversized bathrooms with separate rain showers and deep soaking bathtubs. Every guest room also offers Sofitel's famous "MyBed", and the luxury of a personal espresso machine. LCD televisions and BOSE sound systems entertain in all rooms.

Auckland City Revealed Tour

Experience the best sights of Auckland City in the morning. Auckland is set on 52 dormant volcanic cones and between two harbours, the sparkling Waitemata and the brooding Manukau. Known as the City of Sails, its New Zealand's largest and busiest city. The morning tour is a journey of discovery designed to explore the history and sights as well as see how Aucklanders live and play.

Travel up Queen Street, through Auckland's central business district, past the Auckland University and through the inner city park, known as the Domain. Continue on through the picturesque suburb of Ponsonby, with its historic buildings before heading over the Harbour Bridge to Auckland's North Shore. Stroll on one of our beautiful white sand beaches where there is time for a coffee before continuing up to the summit of Mt Victoria with its stunning panoramic views of Auckland City and historic Devonport.

Travel back over the Harbour Bridge to Westhaven Marina, one of the largest marinas in the Southern Hemisphere before continuing on to the Viaduct Harbour home of the 2000 and 2003 Americas Cup.

Taste of Kumeu Wine Lunch

The wineries of Kumeu date back to the 1930s when wine families of Croation origin established winemaking in the area. These families are still living and working in the area today, making some of New Zealand's most renowned wines. These vineyards contrast with the spectacular coastal scenery of the area. Your first tasting is at award winning Soljans Vineyard. By skilfully marrying traditional with modern techniques, they produce stylish, richly flavoured wines. Enjoy lunch at Soljans Winery restaurant which has been built with sunshine in mind and serves Mediterranean-Style food with a New Zealand twist, showcasing fresh and seasonal produce from around the region. Next to tempt the taste buds is Matua Valley Wines, who offer an extensive range of wines for every unique taste and occasion. Next you visit one of the regions special places where you have the chance to see one of the worlds largest seabirds in their natural environment. Your journey takes you to one of the few mainland gannet nesting sites in the world situated on the cliff-tops overlooking the Tasmanian Sea. Here you get a close up of gannet behaviour without disturbing their environment. The Views extend for miles along the wild, black, iron sand beach of Muriwai. Your final tasting is at West Brook Winery. The West Brook cellar door looks across an idyllic duck pond and terraced picnic area to row after row of vines. The wines reflect true varietal character and their unique regional origins.
