Outdoor Adventure

Glacier Hiking

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.
