New Zealand, famous for its starring role in the Lord of the Rings series, is home to some of the most picturesque locations in the world. Whether you’re there to enjoy the snow, the countryside or the cities that lie between, New Zealand is one of the most action-packed holidays you can go on. Luckily, for travellers world-wide, low-cost airlines are providing cheap flights to Auckland on a regular basis, meaning you can grab yourself a bargain and head on an adventure.
Some of the great adventure tours that you can head on in New Zealand are as follows:
White Water Rafting
Some of the best white water rafting spots in the world is situated between the mountains throughout New Zealand. While the water is often on the cold side, it’s worth braving the temperature in order to experience white water rafting at its best. You can find basic to advanced courses right throughout New Zealand, so be sure to check out your options before booking in to your trip.
One of the most adrenalin rushing experiences that you can have in New Zealand is jet boating. Thrusting through canyons on a river at high speeds is an exhilarating experience and not one for the faint-hearted. Nevertheless it’s a great trip and one I recommend.
Some say New Zealand is the home of bungee jumping, with the Nevis Bungy at AJ Hackett the highest bungy in the country. Launch yourself from a cable car platform 134m above the ground and experience an 8.5 second rush towards the ground. Now that’s adventure!
Last but not least, a tandem skydive over the amazing New Zealand landscape is an adrenalin rush to add to the list with sights like no other. Take in the natural surrounding with views that span hundreds of kilometres right along the New Zealand coast. There are a number of locations to skydive in New Zealand, so if you enjoy your first one, thing about another. There’s no better way to see a landscape than from 14,000 feet!
