Launch yourself into life of adventure and excitement in New Zealand.
New Zealand is the ultimate destination for adventure lovers. In a pristine natural environment of mountains, lakes and coast, you’ll find a dazzling array of pulse-quickening activities that are easily accessible and affordable.
Sir Edmund Hilary, perhaps New Zealand’s greatest adventure hero, was the first man to stand on the summit of Mt Everest. His adventurous spirit conquered the world’s harshest environment and profoundly influenced our national psyche.
When New Zealanders’ adventurous spirit mixes with our natural inventiveness the results can be world-changing. When AJ Hackett and friends started throwing themselves off bridges attached by oversized rubber bands they invented a global phenomenon now known as bungy jumping.
Zorbing is a recent addition to the long list of quirky adventure activities with a uniquely Kiwi heritage. Where else in the world can you roll down a hill in a giant rubber ball?
Matt Harris enjoys the best of both worlds. When he’s not at university studying his favourite subject, Outdoor Recreational Leadership, he’s teaching people of all ages and abilities rock-climbing, white water kayaking or mountain biking in New Zealand’s outstanding natural terrain.
