Experience the best adventures of your lifetime from world's highest swing or the first bungy jump to skydiving, jet boating, rafting and many more. Here are the top 10 adventure activities in New Zealand.
Take a leap of faith on a bungy at the original Kawarau Bungy site, or New Zealand's highest at the top of the Nevis (both in Queenstown). Or for a completely different style of bungy, why not try the Auckland Harbour Bridge or Taupo Bungy on the Waikato River. As the home of bungy, New Zealand doesn’t disappoint!
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 southern hemisphere’s deepest sinkhole.
Zip your way past stunning harbour views on Waiheke Island or enjoy an immersive wilderness experience in Rotorua. Fly through tree tops in Rotorua or while gazing 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.
Get inside a big plastic ball (orb) and roll down a hill. Among Rotorua’s mix of adventure activities is Zorb and OGO – this iconic activity is a must-try if you’re in the region enjoying its renowned geothermal wonders.
