New Zealand has a huge reputation for adventure with a multitude of activities that will get the heart pumping: from sky diving to white water rafting, extreme jet boating to hot air ballooning, caving to quad biking - and more. In many locations it is possible to squeeze several adrenalin pursuits into one day; nicknamed the "adrenalin capital of the world," Queenstown is one such place.
We highly recommend using this fantastic opportunity to challenge yourself and try something new - you will be hard-pressed to find such incredible activities set to a more stunning backdrop. Whilst there is always that small element of risk involved, we work with the most experienced activity operators, all of which place a large emphasis on safety.
