Sky Diving - Adventure Activities, New Zealand

New Zealand - Mecca for thrill seekers and anyone interested in wide open spaces and physical activities. Above the ground you can go bungy jumping, parachuting, skydiving, abseiling and flying; on the ground you can go tramping, mountain bike riding, skiing, horse riding, rock climbing, and 'zorbing'; underground you can go surface caving, cave rafting, and hydro sliding; and on the water you can go jet-boarding, white-water sledging, rafting, boogey boarding, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, sur- rafting, and scuba diving. If there is a difficult and challenging way to get from one point to another you can do it somewhere, somehow, in New Zealand.

Despite the number of off-beat activities available, the most popular one is still tramping (Kiwi lingo for hiking or trekking). Thousands of kilometres of marked tracks and an efficient network of trampers' huts make it a viable activity for everyone from experienced hikers to country strollers. Be warned that some of the more popular tracks such as the Great Walks will be fairly crowded, especially in summer, so if you prefer solitude contact the nearest Department of Conservation for further information on tramping in their area.

New Zealand is also one of the most popular destinations in the southern hemisphere for Skiing and other winter sports because of its reliable and abundant snowfall. This usually occurs between June and October

Tramping / Walking
The South Island offers unsurpassed tramping, ranging from challenging alpine traverses to easy family tracks. For the most part, trampers must be wholly self-sufficient. There are, however, scores of modest huts scattered at strategic points throughout the ranges and the forest, which are generally available on a first-come first-housed basis. These offer spartan but dry surroundings in which to spread a sleeping bag near a cosy wood fire a few tracks, among them the Milford Track, Routeburn, Hollyford and Greenstone have guides available to escort parties between more comfortably appointed huts. Alpine guides, too, are available in some of the national parks for those who wish to tackle difficult stretches above the snow line or to make a complete traverse of the alps.

Skiing - Adventure Activities, New ZealandSkiing
New Zealand's ski industry has come a long way in the past 10 years and now offers an extensive range of ski fields some of which offer world class facilities to match the undeniable world class skiing.

For skiers of every ability, the South Island offers some of the finest fields in the Southern Hemisphere. For the off-piste skier in particular, its powder snows and vast virgin slopes are equal to none. The South Island, while certainly offering awesome skiing opportunities, is not the only part of New Zealand in which you can ski. The North Island offers superb skiing possibilities and should not be overlooked in any enthusiastic haste to get South

For an alpine climbing adventure head straight to the South Island's Southern Alps. This spectacular mountain range contains the highest peaks in Australasia with Aoraki/Mount Cook, at 3753m, being the highest of 30 peaks over 3000m.

Although not the highest mountains in the world, these peaks still present a considerable challenge for keen mountaineers, who need to be reasonably fit and competent with crampons and ice axes. New Zealand's own Sir Edmund Hillary, conqueror of Mount Everest, honed his skills in these mountains.

Most climbing is done in Westland, Mount Cook, Mount Aspiring, Arthur's Pass and Fiordland national parks, all based in the Southern Alps. Commercial guides are available and specialist companies run courses covering a range of climbing experiences. The climbing season is generally November to March, but for experienced climbers the winter months can also produce extended calm, fine spells.

Ride nature's giant hydro slides! Canyoning is like being at a water park in New Zealand native bush. Take on the challenge of this unique water and rock adventure and you will find yourself plunging down water-polished chutes and abseiling waterfalls. Prepare to get very, very wet as you climb, swim, slide and float through the spectacular and mysterious green worlds of sculptured rock and sparkling, crashing cascades. Canyoning is available in Auckland, Wanaka and Canterbury.

Cycle Touring
New Zealand is the perfect place for a cycling or mountain bike adventure. The mild climate makes it ideal for cycling all the year round, though it’s a good idea to protect yourself against the strong sun during the summer months. Many New Zealand towns and cities are ideal for exploring by bike, and you’ll find it easy and inexpensive to hire a bike and a helmet for just a few hours, or a whole day.

Mountain Biking - Adventure Activities, New ZealandMountain Biking
For those who want a more rugged adventure, New Zealand’s hilly terrain makes it a fabulous mountain bike playground! There’s a growing number of specially designed mountain bike tracks, as well as many single and 4WD (four-wheel drive) tracks through beautiful native bush. Make sure that you are permitted to ride these tracks, as some, especially those in National Parks, are for walkers only. If you want even more of a challenge, try alpine heli-biking or cycle up one of the many firebreaks you’ll see on New Zealand’s steep hills!

From beautiful limestone formations to deep caving systems, New Zealand has underground adventures for all interests.

Spelunkers (or cavers) claim New Zealand has some of the most challenging caving systems in the world, and each summer they are attracted to our best areas from around the world. In the North Island the best known area is near Waitomo in the central region. The famous Waitomo Caves offer an easily accessible cave attraction for visitors who want to look at limestone formations and glow-worms. It also has a network of more difficult caves for more experienced and confident cavers. In the Tasman Mountains, north-west of Nelson, are some of the world's largest and deepest caving systems, many of which are still to be explored.

Miscellaneous Madness
Thrill seekers can enjoy a huge range of exhilarating adventure activities in New Zealand. If you want something truly unique, why not give the kiwi inventions of Zorbing and Fly by Wire a go?

A Zorb is a large inflated plastic sphere, with another sphere inside. Just strap yourself in, then roll down the hill! You can reach speeds of up to 50km per hour as you rotate inside an already rotating sphere. Zorbing is very safe, as there is a cushion of air between you and the ground. You can try Zorbing at The Agrodome in Rotorua, or just out of Paihia in the Bay of Islands.

Ever wanted to fly like a bird? Then try the exhilarating Fly by Wire - the world’s fastest adventure ride. Fly by Wire lets you be the pilot of a high-speed craft. Just put on the goggles and gloves, strap yourself in, and fly! You can fly as high and fast as you want, and in any direction. There are Fly by Wire sites in Wellington and Queenstown.
