New Zealand is the adrenalin capital of the world.
The four-hour Lost World Cave guided tour is known as a must-do experience. It begins with a slow 100m abseil past cliffs covered in lush primitive plants. Then you will explore the cave on foot, discovering magical glow worms and ancient formations before tackling a 30m ladder on the climb back out. You’ll treasure this adventure for a lifetime.
The Ledge Urban Bungy is like no other, in that it comes equipped with a ‘runway’ to launch you out 400 metres over Queenstown. What makes this special is the Bungy harness which allows you to vary your Bungy Jump style; try a flip, twist, or numerous other options all designed to provide a different Bungy experience. Not convinced? Try doing this all at night with the lights of Queenstown far below. Either way this Bungy is spectacular especially since you’ve reached it via the famous Skyline Gondola. This Bungy allows you to enjoy the best views in Queenstown as they slide past at a million miles an hour.
When the driver draws a circle in the air above his head, you know it’s time to hold on tight. You’re about to experience a 360 degree thrill! A ride on a jet boat is an adrenalin rush that will leave you gasping. You’ll whip past canyon walls, slide around boulders and skim along impossibly shallow river channels. What a blast!
Queenstown has a special kind of energy. Adventure seems to happen naturally, like there’s something in the air. One minute you’re carving up a ski field, the next you’re shooting rapids in a raft. High on the list is skydiving. There’s no better way to experience the legendary landscapes and redefine your comfort zone.
The highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world is found on the Kaituna River. This seven metre drop Tutea Falls guarantees to make even the toughest customer squeal with an exquisite mixture of fear and exhilaration. There are caves behind the waterfall, traditionally used by local Maori to hide women and children from invading tribes.
