Extreme adventures

If you came to New Zealand in search of thrill, you will be served!

Being the birth place of commercial bungy jumping was not enough for an epic nation like ours, we are also home to an incredibly wide range of options to get your heart racing. The highest rafted waterfall in the world is in New Zealand, as well as the world's biggest canyon swing, and we have more skydiving option than most European countries. If that is still not enough, dive in for a close encounter with the sea's most dangerous hunter, the great white shark!
