If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush on your next trip to New Zealand, then be sure to include Queenstown in your travel plans.
Located on New Zealand’s picture-postcard South Island, Queenstown is the self-proclaimed adventure capital of the world.
Set on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is surrounded by majestic mountains, natural forests, lakes and fast-flowing rivers.
With all that, you can bet there’s a vast range of activities to enjoy all year-round. Queenstown makes for the perfect backdrop for an adventure filled holiday.
For some jaw-dropping, head spinning fun, gather your courage and enjoy these five adventure activities.
Queenstown is surrounded by majestic mountains, but there’s an awesome twist to skiing here.
Why ski or snowboard with everyone else when you can take a scenic helicopter flight to the back country where all the fresh, untouched powder lies undisturbed?
There is nothing more rewarding or incredible than jumping out of a helicopter and carving your tracks in untouched snow?
Take a leap of faith as you dive off a perched platform plunging towards the earth as you scream in joyous terror.
For the ultimate adrenaline activity, you won’t want to miss the Queenstown bungy jumping.
It’s not for the faint of heart but for those with no fear, the birthplace of bungy at Kawarau Bridge, just outside of Queenstown, is the best.
Strap in for a fun-filled adventure of mountain climbing.
Experience isn’t necessary and it’s open to all ages. Options include rock climbing, gorge crossing, ice-wall climbing and abseiling.
For the ultimate experience, book a guided mountaineering tour or alpine walk and trek for some memorable adventures.
Embrace the fear as the door of your aicraft slides open, revealing the wide blue yonder above – and below.
Shuffle over to take your position, then jump!
From 15,000 feet, this leap will have you soarring over the incredible Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu.
Take a 60-second freefall at speeds of up to 200-kilometres per hour before pulling the chute and floating to the ground.
Extreme River Jet Boating
Hold on tight for the ride-of-your-life with the high-speed rush that comes from jet-boating. Your experienced skipper will navigate the river’s shallow waters, narrowly missing the rocky banks and other obstacles as you fly through the canyons and perform 360-degree spins.
Be sure to grab a poncho if you’re offered one, because you will get wet!
