If you’re looking for adventure, New Zealand – especially Rotorua – is the place for you.

With thrills and adrenalin activities galore, many of them world firsts, Rotorua is guaranteed to satisfy even the most hard-core adrenalin junkie. These adventures are nestled in a natural wonderland that showcases the best of New Zealand’s outdoor scenery.

Jumping from a plane is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Floating downwards from 15,000 feet gives you an outlook over Rotorua you wouldn’t get any other way. Unsurpassed views over Rotorua’s lakes and forests, Mt Ruapehu and White Island make the jump worth braving. Choose from 9000, 12,000 or 15,000 feet.

Anybody can also enjoy a scree slide into the crater of dormant Mt Tarawera or luge down Mt Ngongotaha, with the screams of laughter from other riders echoing through the air.

There are plenty of kids’ holiday packages available, making Rotorua a great family adventure vacation spot. You’ll all love the chance to roll downhill in a Zorb, speed around a lake in a jet boat, race each other on a monorail ride or visit an adventure park with a range of options.

Rafting New Zealand is at its best here. It is a popular year-round activity, with trips are available on the Kaituna (grade five), Wairoa (grade five) and Rangitaiki (grade four) Rivers. Kaituna trips include the seven-metre Tutea Falls, the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall.

If rafting isn’t thrilling enough, try white water sledging. First attempted in the 1980s, this activity involves manoeuvring down rapids and past rocks on a boogie-board-style sledge. Participants must be strong swimmers and have a good level of fitness.

Combine your adventure trip with some challenging hiking; New Zealand has plenty of trails to choose from and all wind through stunning scenery.

Stay in one of the many luxury hotels in central New Zealand; there is a wide range to choose from.
