Exciting Activities to Enjoy

Dubbed the adventure capital of the world, you certainly won’t be short of things to do in New Zealand. This vast, diverse and ancient land is home to stunning natural wonders, adrenaline junky locals and rich culture.

Visit Middle Earth

The epic Lord of the Rings movies were filmed in a number of locations around New Zealand. Explore quaint Hobbiton or the intimidating Mount Doom at the Tongariro Crossing. A number of famous filming locations can be reached by hiking or by helicopter and there are several tours.

Skydiving and Bungee Jumping

Bungee jumping was invented by a kiwi and the bridge jump in Queenstown is the original. Many people make bungee jumping and skydiving a priority when they visit New Zealand, and it’s an unforgettable experience. The highest skydive can be found at Abel Tasman, where you plummet 16,500 feet.

Milford Sound

Named the world’s top travel destination, cruising through the sound is a mind blowing experience. Taking in a number of spectacular fjords, you would be forgiven for thinking you were in a fantasy movie at times.


A hub of volcanic and thermal activity, the safe paths through Wai-O-Tapu guide you past some truly spectacular sights. From bubbling mud volcanoes to hot springs and bright, garish acid lakes, it’s an unnerving, other worldly experience.

Visit a Maori Village

An informative trip to Rotorua will see you received with a traditional Maori welcome – the powhiri. Afterwards roam the streets of this pre European settlement, enjoying exhibitions and traditional crafts. You’ll be treated to traditional music and dancing as well as a buffet style banquet. An eye opening and memorable experience.


With thousands of kilometres of coastline, New Zealand’s waters are rich with marine life. There are many opportunities to explore the waters, but Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve is widely considered among the best. A number of guides and tours will take people underwater to explore this ancient area, complete with underwater caves, dinosaurs and a huge range of marine life.
