Activity holidays in New Zealand

On New Zealand's south island is Queenstown, self-proclaimed ‘adventure capital of the world’. It’s hard to argue with this due to the sheer number of high adrenaline adventures available amongst the surrounding Southern Alps.

From whitewater rafting, heli-hiking and bungee jumping, to the slightly more subdued trekking, jet boating and horse riding, there is much to offer those looking for an adventure holiday, not just in Queenstown but all over New Zealand.
