NZ can boast a variety of thrills for all ages; take a 4WD drive to an old gold mine on the West Coast, a tractor ride to gannet colony in Hawke's Bay or enjoy the thrill of rafting or a bungy jump.

Horse-riding - short 1-hour rides in Queenstown to multi-day treks in the high country; bush & beach rides, even among thermal pools.

Jet boating & scenic flights rate high in popularity among activities.

For cycle enthusiasts, choices range from multi-day cycle tours to shorter day & half-day mountain bike excursions.

Bushwalks abound in NZ, with a range of duration & difficulty. Guided walks, including gear transport, are available from Milford Sound to Abel Tasman to central North Island.

Seeking excitement? You will find it in NZ. The adventure sector's own national body works to develop standards of quality ensuring maximum comfort, safety & enjoyment.

Enjoy swimming with whales & dolphins in the Bay of Islands , Whakatane, Kaikoura & Milford Sound.

Caving, black water (underground) rafting & abseiling trips enable exploration of extensive cave systems in both islands.

NZ is home to bungy jumping at numerous sites. Try tandem hang-gliding, para-penting or a free-fall skydive from 3500m!
