For anyone looking for thrills and excitement, head on over to New Zealand, the home of adventure tourism.
Zip your way past stunning harbour views on Waiheke Island, enjoy an immersive wilderness experience through the treetops in Rotorua or fly through the air in lush rainforest canopy on the West Coast tree tops. Gaze at the Remarkables mountain range in Queenstown, or combine zip lining with river tubing and glow worms on the West Coast. It’s the perfect combination of adrenalin, nature and speed.
Heli-skiing is for adventurers who are seeking pure adrenaline and freedom in fresh powder snow. Take a scenic flight to the top of the mountain, make your own downhill tracks as you ski your way back down on the ultimate guided heli-ski adventure.
Get inside a big plastic ball (orb) and roll down a hill, with or without water. Among Rotorua’s mix of adventure activities is the Zorb. This iconic activity is a must-do if you’re in the region enjoying its renowned geothermal wonders.
Buckle up, hold tight and head out on a scenic wilderness off-road adventure on one of New Zealand’s comprehensive network of back-country roads and tracks. Or why not try your luck on the colossal sand dunes of the popular Ninety Mile Beach in Northland.
Featuring some of the most challenging and spectacular caving systems in the world, New Zealand is top of the list for spelunkers (cavers). Walk or float (black-water rafting as it is referred to) through the spectacular Waitomo Caves or enjoy guided underground adventures in Nelson (home to the southern hemisphere’s deepest sinkhole).
