Powerful volcanos and kilometres of coastline: nowhere else do these forces of nature – fire and water – encounter each other in such a formidable way as they do in Auckland, New Zealand. On a language trip to Auckland, you can learn English set against the breathtaking backdrop of surreal volcanic landscapes and fantastic beaches.

Auckland was built on the ridge of around fifty inactive volcanos just off the Pacific volcanic belt, known as the Ring of Fire. Today, this city on the north island of New Zealand is a mecca for water sports fans and is known as the City of Sails due to its countless sailing boats in the bays, lagoons and harbours. Experience how fire and water have combined to make Auckland unique. A third of New Zealand’s population live here, and its theatres, restaurants and bustling nightlife make it the cultural centre of the country. A more exciting place to learn English than New Zealand would be hard to find!

Auckland Harbour

Fire and water in Auckland – What to see and how to get there

Sightseeing in Auckland

The many tourist attractions of Auckland highlight the natural landscape of the city. On a tour of the harbour, you can experience the city’s maritime atmosphere and take a look at the City of Sails’ modern sailing boats. The New Zealand National Maritime Museum tells fascinating tales of the city’s historical sailing ships. Afterwards, anyone looking for a bit of adventure can get their adrenalin kick by bungee jumping from the city’s landmark - the Harbour Bridge.
 
You can also find the city’s most famous volcano right in the maritime area. Looming out of the Gulf of Auckland is the triangular Rangitoto Island. The “Island of the Bleeding Skies” emerged from the sea 600 years ago following a massive volcanic eruption. It has since become the city’s best-known geographical feature and is the highest volcanic crater in New Zealand.
 
South of Auckland, the hot and cold elements come into conflict with each other in an even more unusual way. In Rotorua and Taupo, you can witness geothermal attractions: geysers, hot springs, steaming rocks and the largest hot waterfall in the southern hemisphere beckon with their mysterious charms.
 

Getting to Auckland

The easiest way to get to Auckland is by plane. This way, you also get a glimpse of the breathtaking landscape from above. Auckland International Airport is located just twenty kilometres south of Auckland and is a destination used by many international airlines. You can use the SkyBus, the Auckland airport shuttle, to get into town very easily. From there, you can take several bus routes to the CCEL Language School. As a famous harbour town, Auckland also offers you the option of arriving by boat. If you are already travelling around New Zealand, you can top off your trip with a language course in Auckland.
