Adventure in New Zealand

If adventure is your cup of tea, here are the top activities for you to check out while visiting or staying in New Zealand.


Skydiving is on many people’s bucket list, but not everyone gets the chance to actually do it. Why not try it over some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world? Wanaka, Queenstown, Lake Taupo and Auckland are all top picks for people looking to jump out of a plane for fun!


Seven seconds of heart-wrenching excitement is what you’ll experience if you head to Kawarau Bridge Bungy Centre, or The Nevis Bungy, to experience bungy for yourself. If unusual sounds cooler, you can also bungy from several different New Zealand bridges as well.

Jet Boating

Maybe heights aren’t your thing, but you’re still looking to get the adrenaline pumping. In that case, try jet boating through the Huka Falls or on the Queenstown river.


Whitewater rafting is another popular adventure in New Zealand. There are several popular spots, including Tongariro River, Rotura and Queenstown.


New Zealand has actually been ranked as having some of the best caving in the world. You can walk, or float, through the spectacular caves, or explore the deepest sinkhole in the southern hemisphere at Nelson.

Zip Lining

The best way to see an entire city is by zip lining over it. Alternatively, you can zip through the wilderness, and feel what it’s like to be a monkey or a bird. There is no feeling quite like flying through the gorgeous treetops.


Leap, jump, slide, climb, abseil. Canyoning is no walk in the park.. literally. It is, however, a great way to experience some of the most beautiful spots in NZ, which also turn out to be some of the best-kept secrets, and reserved for the most adventurous.
