    Things to do in New Zealand

    An adventure-junkie’s retreat, New Zealand offers the best of extreme, adrenaline-pumping action!

    Do a bungy jump from the iconic bridge of Kawarau in Queenstown or from the midst of the Auckland Harbour. Either way, the gooseflesh never goes away! If you’re one to experiment, the Nevis Highwire Platform among the backdrop of the Southern Alps, the highest in the country, is just for you.

    Do you like venturing into the depths of the unknown? Visit the Waitomo Caves in Waikato or Ngarua Caves in Nelson for some cave exploration, where you can trek, do black water rafting or climbing. South Island in New Zealand has several other options.

    Take a leap (mostly of faith!) and absorb the view from the top. Tandem skydiving in New Zealand’s Queenstown, especially the Lake Wanaka region, is every eligible tourist’s favourite daytime activity. We hear that it’s remarkably surreal from up there!

    Travelling with kids? We have just the family adventure for you – jet boating! New Zealand’s pristine, water channels, like the Canterbury River, Buller of South Island and Rangitaiki in North Island are ideal locations for such activities.
