New Zealand Adrenaline Tour

Hop On Hop Off & Adrenaline Adventures In New Zealand

If  you are not interested  in doing some absolutely mental (and spine shaking awesome) activities during your trip to New Zealand, then stop reading right now.

Still here? Good, then let us begin. Do you every get the feeling life is passing you by? Do you want to see some of the worlds best scenery and if that wasn’t enough do some of the worlds most thrilling activities at the same time? Then the New Zealand Adrenaline Tour is for you.



During this, the mother of all adrenaline adventures you get to explore New Zealand, an amazingly beautiful country that you do not want to miss out on.

If you are short on time, or planning on working in New Zealand or spending much longer there, this trip is completely flexible so it fits around your itinerary.


  • You get to see both North Island and South Island (depending on the pass you choose)
  • You get to throw yourself out of a perfectly good aeroplane, attached to a handsome stranger
  • You might kak your pants on the Shotover Canyon Swing
  • You might just find a new addiction on thousand horsepower turbo jet boat.


The adrenaline tour is a combination of a hop on hop off pass taking in both islands and some epic adrenaline activities in Queenstown.

This then works well if you want to add some work in New Zealand onto this trip (we have a programme for that too) but most spend a month on the tour.

As you will need to spend at least five days in Queenstown, we recommend a minimum trip time of one month, allowing you just over three weeks to visit both islands. Having said that why rush it, five weeks would be a comfortable time frame to complete the trip. We have a comprehensive question-and-answer video on the  FAQ section  so have a look at that as it will answer many of your questions.

There is accommodation included in Queenstown but not enroute, this is organised and paid locally.

When you hop on the bus in the morning, you confirm with your guide if you need accommodation for the night and give him a voucher number. Easy as that!

See more on  accommodation in New Zealand.

Please note the accommodation included will not cover your entire stay in New Zealand, we would recommend a minimum time of one month for this trip.

At least five of your nights will be spent in Queenstown, leaving another 15 nights in various locations. You will also probably want to stay in certain locations more than one night if you are not rushed for time.

Nomads Queenstown (1)

With so many beautiful places in New Zealand to discover you would be mad not to spend some time in Wanaka, Auckland or Rotorua. We bolt on flexible accomodation packs for you so you can sleep easy. We work with the top hostel chains in Australia and New Zealand:

Accommodation in Queenstown is based on dorms, in a mixture of backpacker hostels, they are all of a very high standard and the Xtreme Gap team frequently visits to ensure that the accommodation is up to standard. You will need to top up your accommodation in certain locations where hostels are not covered, although all the main locations are covered. Expect to pay about £15 per night for additional accommodation and obviously the costs of the extra accommodation depends how long you make the trip. Because eating out in New Zealand can be quite expensive, all of the hostels are equipped with kitchens so you are able to reduce the cost of living while travelling, and all the hostels have comfortable chill out areas and access to Wi-Fi.

However this rarely happens because our skydive partners Nzone operate two drop zone locations, and you can jump at either of them – in Queenstown and Rotorua.
