Experience New Zealand

Posted: 11/07/2012 14:01

New Zealand, the first place in the world to see in the brand new day, the land of Maori culture, wide open spaces and lush landscapes, often finds itself gracing the lists of best places to visit in the world. Because if its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans and is still relatively unpopulated giving it an uncluttered feeling of tranquillity. Its outdoor lifestyle makes adventure a way of life and the vast landscapes are all encompassing, from intrepid fiord land and mountain snow to beach culture. It's the perfect place for an all round holiday.

Ever since AJ Hackett opened the first commercial bungee jumping centre in New Zealand it has become a popular destination for thrill seekers and those who thrive of getting their adrenaline kicks. Travellers will most likely at some point be convinced to do a Bungee Jump or skydive and it doesn’t stop there. Sky jump off the Sky Tower in Auckland, feel the freight-train speed of a genuine America’s Cup Yacht first hand, go mountain climbing on Mount Cook, abseiling at Waitomo or black water rafting underground. It is the ultimate adventure playground.
