Thrill seeking hotspots of New Zealand

If you’re the kind of traveller who prefers skydiving to sunbathing, but you still appreciate beautiful beaches, awe-inspiring views, great food and sunshine, then New Zealand is a hotspot not to be missed.
Kawarau Bridge Bungee
It might comprise of two very small islands, but it packs a punch when it comes to adventure sports, with thrill-seeking activities such as bungee jumping, caving, skiing, surfing, skydiving, luging and various other exciting escapades available. The best way to see New Zealand is on a tour of the North and South islands, as despite their close proximity, they are quite contrasting and offer a different experience for those wanting to pack everything into a holiday to New Zealand.
Rafting Queenstown

Everything is topsy-turvy in the Southern Hemisphere, so the further south you go, the colder it gets! Therefore, for magnificent mountains, glaciers and amazing walking and skiing, head to the South Island which is home to New Zealand’s adventure capital Queenstown. Surrounded by mountains and nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown’s stunning scenery is inspiring and revitalising. It also offers something for every adrenaline seeker, from jet boating to river surfing and canyon swinging!
Hot Spring Rotorua

However if you’re in need of hotter weather, warm seas and hot springs then the North Island is for you. Rotorua is the place to head to if you’re after adventure to rival the South Island. It’s a geothermal wonderland of volcanic crater lakes, spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools and the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall.

However, once the endorphin party is over and you just want to chill out on the beach, then Mount Maunganui situated in the city of Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty, is the ideal place to relax and catch some rays. Located on a slim peninsular of land, it’s New Zealand's favourite summer holiday destination, offering a white sandy surf beach on the ocean side, and a safe sheltered inner harbour beach on the other.
Hang Gliding
Mount Maunganui is also the name of the extinct volcano which rises above the town. Finish your day at the beach with a cool glass of Sauvignon Blanc and some fresh green-lipped mussels and you’ll really be living the Kiwi life the way it should be!
