New Zealand is known as the country to get adventurous! New Zealanders (called Kiwis) are really into sports and a healthy lifestyle, so it is normal to see people exercising outdoors everyday - no matter the weather.
The locals also like to get more radical, practicing bungee jumping, skydiving, snowboarding and other extreme sports. Here are some places where you can perform these activities and feel the adrenaline!
Snowboarding – Go to Mt Hutt in Canterbury, around 1 hour from Christchurch in the South Island, or to the Remarkables mountains in Queenstown. The ski stations at these locations have all kinds of difficulty levels, so if you never skied before, you can start with beginner classes and then move on.
Bungee Jumping – The most famous locations to jump are the Viaduct Bridge and the Sky Tower in Auckland. Queenstown is another option for bungee jumping.
Sky Diving – You can go sky diving in Queenstown, Auckland, or Taupo. The prices start from NZD $230, depending on how high you wanna jump from.
You can also go caving (exploring caves) in the North and South Island, off-road driving in Waikato and Marlbourough, rafting in Christchurch and Ziplining in Queenstown!
