Azamara’s commitment to Destination Immersion encourages guests to stretch beyond their comfort zones and embrace cultural and outdoorsy experiences. In Auckland, your choices for adrenaline-pumping adventures are many. You might try the new EcoZip, a dual zip line towering above Waiheke Island’s wine country. Or test your bravery while walking along the top of the famous Sky Tower. You’ll be secured by a harness and suspended 630 feet above sea level—with views spanning for miles. (Make sure to have a friend take your picture or it didn’t happen!) Still, you don’t need to scale such heights to have a memorable Auckland adventure. One alternative, mountain biking, is a fine way to cover a lot of scenic ground. Locals and tourists flock to Auckland’s Waitakere Ranges to go hiking and canyoneering amid flowing waterfalls and deep gorges. If you still have energy, a horseback ride along the beach at sunset is the perfect close to an adventurous day.
