New Zealand really is an adventurer’s paradise. It’s a young, immigrant country with that immigrant’s sense of adventure. The conservative ones stayed home, right? People will give anything a go – and we mean anything.
We have separate guides to Cycling & Mountain Biking; Hiking & Walking; National Parks and Winter Sports – what you’ll find here are the many other options:
Most famously, bungy jumping kicked off in Queenstown and there are a number of spots around the country, including Auckland’s Sky Tower, that you can hurl yourself off.
For more of dropping out of the sky, try skydiving, paragliding or hang-gliding.
On land, you can head off rock climbing or caving.
On water, there’s jetboating, rafting, canyoning, kayaking & canoeing, yachting, windsurfing & kitesurfing, fishing and surfing - plus lots, lots more.
Under the water, try diving and snorkelling.
Keep your eyes open when you’re out there, because there are a lot of other outdoor adventures too!
