Auckland is New Zealand’s most populous city and there is no shortage of amazing winter activities in which to partake while visiting. This North Island city is an economic hub of the country and offers plenty of cultural and adventure activities - there truly is something for everyone! All roads lead to Auckland, so it's a great start and end point for any North Island trip. The topography of Auckland features many intriguing natural highlights. From copious gulfs and bays to scenic mountains, there is certainly no shortage of lush outdoor beauty to set the scene for your perfect winter getaway. Whether you’re traveling with family or on a weekend trip with your sweetheart, you’ll find plenty to do - both indoors and out. Auckland has mild and slightly wet winters, which makes it an ideal option for summer vacationers. Snow rarely falls in the region, and even though winter is the rainy season, Auckland still has plenty of sunshine to go around. Great winter weather means that you can participate in any Auckland activities without worrying too much about wearing the right garb or dealing with nasty winter storms. Simply travel with a good pair of wellies and some comfortable layers and you can see and do whatever you want while in town. What a better way to travel from Auckland than with a motorhome.

Piha is only one of a number of bays and beaches in the area, all wild surf beaches, some more accessible than others. While the main beaches – Piha, North Piha and Karekare – attract big crowds in the summer, on a wild dayÂ you could be the only person on the beach, and only small numbers make their way to the beaches where it takes more effort to get there, such as White’s Beach, Anawhata and The Gap, and you can only gaze in awe at cliff-locked Mercer Bay.
If you are in search of a sweet treat there is no better place than Giapo. Made fresh daily from 100% natural products, Giapo's creations are are possibly some of the best ice creams in the world and they taste even more delicious than they look.
On a mission to bring the world to Auckland for ice cream, the gelato creations found at Giapo are beyond the traditional forms of this dairy delight. Pushing the boundaries of what gelato can be, the haute ice cream trend has begun at Giapo. Think flavours such as Tiramasu, praline, smoky whiskey and chocolate and beyond, decadently garnished with the likes of gold coated hazelnuts, torched meringue and spun sugar.
If you're looking for a seriously good way to indulge your sweet tooth then Giapo is the place to go - especially since it is open late most nights.
