Multi Day Tours
The range of New Zealand activities is huge. Whether you want a
relaxing holiday, an exhilarating adventure holiday, or a little of
both, you will find something to suit in New Zealand.
New Zealand attracts visitors for many reasons. Some come because of the amazing scenery, some come to chill out and relax, and many others come to enjoy the wide range of high adrenalin activities available.
Here's a bit more information on a few of the more popular activities available:
Take A Tour Of Milford Sound - The Most Popular Of All New Zealand Activities
Described by author Rudyard Kipling as the "Eighth Wonder of the World", Milford Sound is New Zealand's number one attraction.
This mystical place is simply stunning and it's difficult to find the
words to describe Milford Sound. "Amazing", "awe inspiring",
"spectacular", "stunning". They all apply.
Sheer cliffs plunge several thousand feet into the deep dark waters of the sound. On rainy days waterfalls cascade seemingly from the clouds.
And the underwater observatory provides a great view of life below the surface.
The drive to Milford is an amazing experience in itself. The only access road takes you through the beautiful lake side village of Te Anau, and on past towering peaks, rugged rivers and waterfalls, to the Homer Tunnel. Carved through the mountain side, you emerge from the tunnel into what looks like something out of Jurassic Park!
If you do only one thing in New Zealand, visit Milford Sound. You won't be disappointed. In our opinion, it's the best of all New Zealand activities.

Available in many centres around New Zealand.
were developed in New Zealand to traverse shallow streams. You will be
amazed as you rush through narrow streams sometimes in as little as 6-12
inches of water! Highly manouverable, some jetboat operators also
operate in narrow gorges, such as on the Shotover River near Queenstown.
What a thrill.
I can tell you from personal experience, that a jetboat ride is one of the best ways to spend an hour or so during your New Zealand trip. Another one of those wonderful, iconic, New Zealand activities!
New Zealand is the home of the bungy.
And the creator of bungy is a guy named AJ Hackett. From the original
bungy site at the old Kawarau Bridge near Queenstown, bungy has expanded
to many areas of New Zealand.
We have both jumped from the old Kawarau Bridge, and it was the most adrenalin charged experience of our lives! It's a real personal challenge, and for us it was a spur of the moment decision to jump. Probably just as well because if you think about it for too long, self doubt creeps in, and before you know it, you have decided not to do it.
We highly recommend it. And if you do bungy, pay the extra and have it video taped. Your friends and relatives may not believe you otherwise.

Trout Fishing New Zealand
For a truly unique kiwi experience, how about a spot of trout fishing?.
New Zealand is well known as one of the prime trout fishing destinations
in the world. Through our association with Fishing In New Zealand, we
are able to offer you a wide selection of trout fishing tours on both
the North Island and South Island. Pristine rivers and streams,
experienced guides, and that famous kiwi hospitality.
New Zealand Golf
Play on some of the best courses in the world such as Cape Kidnappers.
New Zealand has a great selection of world class golf courses. Having
played on some of the best in the country, I was constantly amazed by
not only the quality of the courses, but the stunning locations. I found
it difficult at times to concentrate on my golf because I was so busy
looking at the scenery! If you can sneak your digital camera into your
golf bag, you will get some amazing photos.

New Zealand activities don't come much better!
Maori Cultural Experiences
New Zealand is the World's youngest country, having been settled less
than 1000 years ago. The descendants of today's Maori people arrived in
canoes and began a culture that is very much a part of modern New
The New Zealand Maori are a proud people and many New Zealand activities focus on giving visitors an insight of the traditional Maori ways. A cultural tour is the perfect way to learn about the Maori heritage, customs, and art.
Have you seen (and heard) the New Zealand Haka ?
White Water Rafting
If you want a thrilling experience, white water rafting may be just the
thing. Throughout New Zealand, there are various rafting companies
offering tours on New Zealand's beautiful rivers. Catering for beginners
and experienced rafters, most companies can design a tour to suit.
Adrenalin charged and stunning scenery. What could be better?

New Zealand Whale Watching
Several whale watching companies operate around the country. I clearly
remember the excitement as we watched these huge mammals surface close
to our boat off the Kaikoura coast on New Zealand's South Island.
As well as whales, you may encounter seals, dolphins, penguins and other marine life.
Perhaps the premier whale watching spot in New Zealand is Kaikoura. Tours run year round, and in addition to the giant Sperm Whales, you may encounter New Zealand Fur Seals, Dusky Dolphins, Orca, and penguins. Other whale species can also be seen at different times of the year.
We highly recommend a Whale Watch Kaikoura tour.
Kayaking in New Zealand
The numerous New Zealand waterways are best seen close up, and what better way than on your own kayak.
Places like the Abel Tasman National Park, the Bay of Islands, and the Coromandels offer visitors picture perfect conditions for kayaking. Guided tours of varying lengths are available, or you can choose to kayak unassisted.
A kayak trip lets you get up close with a wide variety of marine life, and allows you the opportunity to stop off at a countless number of beautiful bays and inlets.
New Zealand Trekking
New Zealand has some of the best walks in the world, such as the Milford
Track, the Hollyford Track, and the Routeburn Track. Glacier and snow
hikes are also available.
New Zealand is perhaps the most "hiker friendly" country in the world, and has such a variety of well maintained walks that you will think you are in "hiking heaven"!.
New Zealand has a number of "Great Walks" that are truly amazing and are rightly classified as world class.
Treks in New Zealand are maintained and controlled by the Department of Conservation. Their website has heaps of information on each walk and is a must view if you are thinking about trekking in New Zealand.
We have a range of trekking holidays available for you to view here.

almost endless supply of things to do. It is a truly amazing
