Vacations in Wellington

The area and getting around

Wellington for adventurous spirits

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and it seats in the southernmost point of the North Island. The city has public spaces dotted with cafes, parks, great outdoor activities and a lovely promenade to enjoy lovely walks in the afternoon and the evening. Oriental Bay beach is a nice spot for swimming and soak up in the sun. Surrounded by nature, it is also a great vacation place for those looking for active tourism. Wellingtonians are known for being some of the fittest New Zealanders so you can join them in this healthy lifestyle walking, running, skating or cycling in and around the city.

Tourism with great emotions

Visit some markets and stroll around its stalls. The favorite with locals is Harborside Market every Sunday until 2pm. Full of colorful lanes of veggies and fruit and some trucks with great coffee and nibbles. Moore Wilson’s Market opens every day and it’s where the restaurant owners shop. It is also a Deli and fresh food store. Finally, we recommend the Underground and the Night Market, both with buzzing atmospheres, great food and live music. For those Lord of the Rings followers, take a Wellington Movie Tour and experience New Zealand’s film capital.

Travelers and activities

Wellington for culture lovers

New Zealand is full of museums and art galleries with lots of history within its walls. Go to Te Papa Museum and discover fascinating interactive stories about the region and New Zealand in general. Learn more about the geological, cultural and social history of the country in a completely innovative way. Visit the regular exhibitions and displays with top-rating international tours. And even better, general admission is free! There is no excuse to visit it, is it?

Wellington for nature lovers

Enjoy the best views of the city, from the top of Mount Victoria. Get a 360 degrees view from the lookout point. Head to the top taking a pathway through the bush-covered town Belt or drive all the way up. Get your reward at the top - stunning panoramic views of Tinakori HIll, the Hutt Valley and Eastern habor bays and the Miramar Peninsula. To spend your day at the top you can take a picnic with you and relax watching cruises in and out of the habor and wait for the sun to go down and the light to come up. Those early birds can also enjoy the sunrise! Do not forget your camera.

New Zealand was the first country to give women the right to vote and Wellington, besides being its capital city, is the southernmost capital in the world.
