It would be easy to go from one thrill to the next for a week in Queenstown, known as the adventure capital of the world. Here are a few of the options.
Queenstown is the home of the original AJ Hackett Bungy Jump. Choose to visit their original site at Karawau River to jump 43m from the historical Karawau Bridge or if you are feeling brave head to The Nevis Valley and jump from the suspended platform 134m above the canyon – New Zealand’s highest bungy.
Imagine the scenery of Queenstown or Glenorchy as your parachute opens and you are gliding towards ground. If you are a first time jumper what better place in the world to try.
Embrace the surroundings of a natural high walled canyon whilst descending down through the narrow walls, plunging into pools, swimming through narrow passages. An ultimate water adventure.
White Water Rafting
From gentle family friendly trips to grade 5 rapids everyone is able to enjoy a day out on the river. There are several spectacular locations suitable for rafting including the Shotover River and Kawarau River. If you want a more peaceful trip, head to Glenorchy and take a ride in a fun yak.
Not quite up to jumping from a plane? A tandem paragliding experience will give you the feeling of freedom while soaring above and taking in the incredible views of Queenstown.
Whether you prefer the thrill of speeding through mere centimetres of water through the Shotover Canyon or a more scenic ride down the Dart River, a jet boat experience will be memorable.
Want to feel like you are flying through the forest? This is the perfect Queenstown adventure for everyone to enjoy.
