Queenstown Adrenaline Overload: Trip Highlights

Take one week and make it the week of your life. Everything you could ever want to do that makes you feel alive packed into one completely mental itinerary. You owe it to yourself to do this. Think of the future think of all the hours of commuting, the decades of clock watching until Friday afternoon, for every inevitable dreary business meeting, spent staring out the window, dreaming you could do something amazing instead. Well this is it. Your one chance at greatness, are you ready for it?

Highlights Include:

  • Days and nights in the sublime Queenstown
  • An awesome Nzone Sky Dive from 15,000ft (Highest in the southern hemisphere!)
  • Jet boating through canyons on the Shot Over Jet Boat
  • Canyon Swing: The world famous 300 Metre Nevis Swing. Swing by yourself or tandem with a friend – forwards, backwards, upside down – you choose.
  • Testing your metal on the insane Nevis Bungee – Australasia highest bungee 134 metres (or choose the softer Kawarau bridge 43 metres where bungy jumping began)
  • River rafting. This Queenstown rafting trip on the Kawarau River takes you on a thrilling ride over Class II and III white-water rapids.
