Big cities and nature don’t usually go together, except when said city is named Auckland. Imagine a large eco-friendly metropolis surrounded by thousands of miles of beaches and coastlines, vast trails filled with brush and mud, and active volcanoes and islands. Sound unusual? It gets better; North Island, where Auckland is located, is home to one of the most vibrant and preserved cultures in the Maoris, with 90% of their population residing there. Year-round maritime weather makes the “City of Sails” a wonderland for sea aficionados, and you can easily book ferry tours to some of the isles that sit near Auckland, like the volcanic island of Rangitoto. These unique listings place Glampers in the center of these sceneries. With amenities like Wi-Fi, TVs and indoor wood-burning stoves, these choices will make staying in Auckland easy for any traveler.
