If you like a bit of adrenaline injected in to your holiday, then New Zealand is the place for you. Aside from the natural thrill of the spectacular scenery there are also endless activities to be enjoyed – from white-water rafting and jet-boat tours to heli-trips and of course the iconic bungy jump. However, if you don’t feel like throwing yourself off a bridge or down a river then there are gentler but equally as exciting options such as 4wd tours, guided kayaking, zip-lining and challenging walks. This itinerary gives you a flavour of the kind of things you can do whilst there.
