Adventure for Kids

89_Queenstown 05_11_05 Jaco op Luge

New Zealand is the land of outdoor adventures. We’ve got separate sections here for Beaches for Kids and Walks for Kids, both of which offer a myriad of places for families with kids to enjoy their visit.

If your kids are teenagers, head straight to Outdoor Adventures.

Winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding can keep kids entertained for days. Remember, the seasons are opposite down here - winter sports activities generally take place between June and early October. But even in summer many of NZ’s ski resorts put on activities for kids and families – so this section’s worth a browse at any time of year.
