The home of adventure sports
For a small nation in the lower Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is jam packed with adventures of every type imaginable. Borne from the ethos of those living there is a sense of adventure and outdoors right at the doorstep. There are dramatic glacial fiords, snow capped mountains, stunning surf-lashed beaches, rainforest hikes, boutique ski resorts and scenic helicopter flights over the ever-changing landscape. A key highlight is the ‘adventure capital of the world’ – Queenstown – which is the birthplace of bungy-jumping and commercial jet boating., Also highly recommended are the wild and remote West Coast of the South Island, Rotorua for a range of exciting adventures, and skydiving in Nelson and Taupo. New Zealand is super easy to get around, and one of the few places in the world where you can ski/snowboard in the morning and surf in the afternoon!
