All of the adventure activities you've ever dreamed of - right on each others doorsteps.
Rotorua is famous for its prolific geothermal activity, literally bursting with geysers (including the famous Pohutu Geyser at Te Puia(opens in new window)), bubbling mud pools and hot springs. Meet the locals and experience the best of Maori culture from performances to the traditional food.
No New Zealand holiday is complete without a trip on one of our rivers. Have the rafting experience of a lifetime (opens in new window)on the Kaituna river - whether its grade 4 or 5, we’ll leave up to you. Of course, you could always do both. Photo by @h__olly(opens in new window) on Instagram.
Wellington’s Weta Workshop(opens in new window) has produced some of the world’s biggest and best-loved films like The Hobbit, The Lord of The Rings, King Kong and others. While in Wellington, also make sure to check out Te Papa(opens in new window), New Zealand’s national museum and art gallery. Both are a must-do.

With its stunning backdrop, beautiful, secluded beaches, tranquil waters and rich marine life, Nelson offers some of the most awesome sea kayaking in the world. All trips are fully guided and no experience is necessary. Photo by @serenalisney(opens in new window) on Instagram.
Queenstown is commonly regarded as the adventure capital of the Southern Hemisphere. It was here that both jet boating and bungee jumping were invented – and both are at the top of most thrill-seeking visitors’ to-do lists. Photo by @iluvnewzealand(opens in new window) on Instagram.
Once you've dried off from the jetboat ride, get ready to take a leap of faith. Queenstown is the birthplace of the bungy. If you want to push yourself to edge and beyond this is the perfect place to do it; take a deep breath and experience what so many before you have. Photo by @emriga(opens in new window) on Instagram.
