Six of the Best Adventures in New Zealand

“Whether you prefer a stomach-dropping free fall or a calf-burning rock ascent, New Zealand has no shortage of hair-raising adventures for those with a head for heights,” Justin Meneguzzi writes for National Geographic Traveller.

In his article, Meneguzzi features his top six New Zealand adventures, including ziplining through native beech forests, climbing alongside a waterfall, and canyoning by moonlight.

“Conquer the world’s steepest tree-to-tree zip-line on a treetop expedition outside Queenstown,” Meneguzzi writes. “Ziptrek Ecotours runs a range of zip-line tours, from one-hour experiences to half-day adventures that build up serious speed – dropping 30 storeys in 10 seconds as you whizz through beech forests. Carbon-neutral Ziptrek also restores native forests through tree-planting programmes.”
