Get to know Wellington with Viator

Fanning around Wellington Harbour at the bottom of the North Island, New Zealand’s small capital is bounded by hills covered in colorful homes and forest beyond. Wellington gets its eclectic nature from a combination of governmental formality and urban street style. A waterfront promenade and seaside suburbs offer chances to stroll and swim, while vibrant dining, craft beer, and arts scenes provide shelter from the city’s famously bracing wind.
