Head on down to the Adventure Capital of New Zealand! With so many options to blow your mind and test your adventure boundaries you’ll be leaving here feeling on top of the world! Check out the best of Queenstown adventure in an action packed two day itinerary not for the faint hearted:-

Day One - Getting all types of air!

After waking up and looking out over the stunning scenery that sits on your doorstep (we suggest Blue Peaks Apartments for central Queenstown accommodation), take the leisurely 5 minute stroll into town and kick start your first day with a full breakfast at Bob’s Weigh – a quirky small café right opposite The Station Information Centre on Shotover Street.

Satisfied and full, saunter over the road to The Station building and plan the rest of your day. Visit the Queenstown Combos desk as they are the experts in Queenstown adventure packages and can plan your time  in Queenstown in the cheapest way possible. And we all like saving time & money!

We suggest you start off with the Heli Scenic Combo which combines Queenstown's famous Shotover Jet and a helicopter flight. Hop onto the world’s most exciting jet boat ride and feel the wind in your hair as you spin 360 and speed through the Shotover Canyon. Straight after this prepare to have your mind blown as you board a helicopter ride for a birds eye view of Queenstown’s finest scenery. Experience a magical helicopter landing on the Remarkable Mountains and get click happy with your camera!

Not wanting to miss a moment on your fun filled adventure, grab a take away snack or lunch from one of the local café’s or bakeries and get straight back into it - Next up is the Swing Skydive Combo! Skydiving with Nzone is a must do in Queenstown and the feeling of freefall is arguably the ultimate adrenalin rush.

After being blown away from skydiving, you will head off to the Shotover Canyon Swing to face your fears on the world’s highest cliff jump. This one will be sure to test the strength of your stomach, when you choose how to leave the platform in one of their 70+ jump styles. You may even decide to jump twice with cheap second jumps!

The evening is yours to spend how you please… perhaps catch the Gondola to the top of Bob’s peak, enjoy Luging or indulge in a spectacular meal with the best views in town!

Day Two - Are you up for the Challenge?

Standards are high after your first day of thrills and adventure, but with Queenstown Combo’s Nevis Bungy and Heli-Raft package, you’ll be sure to get your kicks!

Heli-rafting is first up on the agenda; take a roller-coaster helicopter flight through the rugged Skippers Canyon to experience the whitewater challenges of the Shotover River, famous for its gold rush and rafting adventures.

Once dried off and your heart rate has settled, it’ll be time to pump it right back up again with New Zealand's biggest Bungy jump. Enjoy the 40 minute drive through beautiful countryside, before reaching the Nevis Bungy site. Harness up, psych  up, and get reading to go big or go home… if your hunger levels are through the roof for adrenalin fuelled activities, the Nevis bungy will certainly satisfy.

After a day of extreme escapades your choices are still varied. Maybe end the day with a fabulous meal at Flame Bar and Grill (the best ribs in town!) and then explore the Queenstown night life. For a unique experience and delicious cocktail head to the Ice bar (you guessed it…the whole bar is made of ice) it's a great way to celebrate your achievements and end your crazy Queenstown adventure!
