Adrenaline Tours

Queenstown Adrenaline Overload Xtreme Gap Year (4)At Xtreme Gap Year, we call it Adrenaline Travel, it is our own unique spin on global adventure travel, designed with one sole purpose in mind, to make you feel like you have really lived during your time away. Founded by two adventure seeking travellers, who met whist diving with Bull sharks in Thailand, they have scoured the globe for adrenaline activities to recommend to customers to make their travel experiences as exciting as possible. Some are mainstream, after all some activities become popular on merit, others are totally original and provide as big a kick, as any long established bungee jump.

Adrenaline Tours

One of our adrenaline tours can be made up of lots of different exhilarating moments, wrapped up with prearranged logistics, making your adventure more about having the time of your life, rather than focussing which bus ticket you need. We offer trips dependent on travel destination, and can tailor each experience to your liking.

Adrenaline shots

Some people are looking for a short adrenaline travel experience, we call it an Adrenaline Shot, a small taste of what is out there, but no less effective. This could be Shark cage diving with Sharkman Mike Rutzen, or even freediving with Tiger sharks, bungee jumping, skydiving and white water rafting. What ever your poison, an Adrenaline Shot experience will not be your run of the mill weekend away.

Queenstown Adrenaline Overload Xtreme Gap Year (19)

Adrenaline travel. It is what we like to call extreme travel experiences designed with one thing in mind. To get your pulse racing with a combination of mind blowing travel experiences interspersed with high adrenaline activities.

If you want to make sure your gap year trip is a once in a life time experience, you need to cram it with activities that you would not, and dare not to do at home. Adrenaline Travel makes this possible: by changing your day to day environment and facing your fears to ultimately achieve some incredible adventures.
