Adventure Tourism New Zealand
Aside from its jaw-dropping scenery, unique wildlife, and extra friendly locals, New Zealand is probably most well-known for the range of adrenalin pumping activities it offers. Kiwis have been doing crazy things for decades and now, you can too! Here are some of the most popular adventure tourism activities commercial operators offer. If you prefer to get your thrills for free, you'll find loads of options in the NZ FreNZy guide book you'll get for FREE when you book with Wilderness.
New Zealander AJ Hackett pioneered this crazy adrenalin activity more than 20 years ago. Now there are dozens of jumps available in New Zealand so you can jump from any number of bridges, platforms, and towers.
CAVING, ABSEILING, AND BLACK WATER RAFTING
The Waitomo Caves, some of the most stunning accessible underground caves, are located just two hours south of Auckland. You can abseil into the caves then exit via raft, tube, or climb. A truly unique New Zealand adventure.
WHITE WATER RAFTING
Experience New Zealand's wildest rivers in raft. Take in the breath-taking scenery only visible from the water. Guided trips are available on many rivers in both the North and South Islands. A must do activity for adventure lovers with a heart for the wilderness.
