Outdoor activities

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 among the surrounding Southern Alps.

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