After group introductions and trip briefing, we head to Spencer Park and start with an exhilarating adventure through the awesome Adrenalin Forest. This progressive high ropes course has zip lines, balancing ropes, Nepalese bridges, a giant swing and a lot more that test your nerves and stamina as it takes you up to 23 metres high up into the pine forest. What a great way to start the tour!

After lunch we head inland and to a Secret Waterfall Hike with impressive views over the Canterbury Plains, and out to the Pacific Ocean. Take in some fantastic NZ history, flora and waterfalls before heading to the impressive Rakaia Gorge and onto our first night's accommodation.

SIGHTS

Adrenalin Forest, Secret Waterfall Hike

Today we head down through the Canterbury plains and to Peel Forest for a big day on the New Zealand's best and most extreme white-water rafting adventure trip!

Experience 3 hours of incredible grade 5 rapids, amidst spectacular scenery. By the time you reach the rip-roaring grade 5 section where the gorge narrows to a pinch, you're fully prepared and ready for action. The rafts stop before these rapids and you can walk around them if you prefer. But there's more - an optional jump off a ten metre cliff!

From here we drive into Mackenzie Country and to the stunning Lake Tekapo for an optional Air Safari of Mount Cook and Glaciers. Air Safaris will take you on an unforgettable scenic flight exploring the alpine wonderland of New Zealand's highest mountains, mighty alpine glaciers and lush coastal rain forests.

Continuing South, we visit the incredible Lake Pukaki, see Mt Cook, and dive into the heart of New Zealand's Southern Lakes - prepare to be amazed!. After a lunch stop on the shores of Lake Wanaka we cross the fords to Mount Aspiring National Park and into the wilderness of the Matukituki Valley. From here we undertake a half day return hike to the Rob Roy Glacier.

Considered to be the most scenic one day hike in all of New Zealand's South Island, the track will take you through lowland flats along the Rob Roy Stream and into beech forest with a rich under story of mosses and ferns. As you get higher you'll emerge out of the trees and into the alpine zone, characterised by low tussock vegetation. Impressive overhead hanging glaciers beneath Mount Rob Roy is the highlight of the walk as are the numerous Keas (the only alpine and smartest parrot in the world) flying overhead.

ACCOMODATION

SIGHTS

Hike to the Rob Roy Glacier

Today we head just outside of Wanaka for a full day rock climbing adventure trip at the awesome hospital flats which offer climbs for all ability.

If you have some good experience and depending on your goals, we can cover skills such as lead climbing, multi-pitch, anchors, rope management and advanced climbing techniques. If you simply want to climb then we can just go hard out on the area's "classic climbs".

ACCOMODATION

SIGHTS

Experience the best climbs for your ability to practice your newfound skills.

Kick start your day with a massive adrenaline high and an amazing 12,000 ft Tandem Skydive at one of the most incredible drop zones with a backdrop of the Southern Alps.

Safely harnessed to a qualified instructor, you will freefall for 45 seconds and experience terminal velocity with arguably the best views of New Zealand's Southern Alps. Open the chute and silently glide down to terra firma and take in the jaw dropping lake and mountain views, or you can keep the adrenaline pumping with some crazy corkscrew turns under the canopy!

Once safely on the ground, we make our way through the historic Cardona valley to Queenstown - the adventure capital of the world.

ACCOMODATION

Today is the day to face you fears! Choose to jump from either the world famous Kawarau Bungy Bridge, or take on the mighty Nevis Swing.

Test your limits as you jump from Kawarau Bridge, the world's first ever bungy site, at the height of 43 metres over the Kawarau river. Awesome adrenaline rush and you can even dunk into the river!

The Nevis swing is the BIGGEST swing in the world! Imagine being suspended 160m above the canyon floor, and be released to experience a massive rush of adrenaline as you find yourself accelerating through the canyon at mind blowing speeds of up to 150kph in a 300m arc!

After lunch we drive to Te Anau, the gateway to Fiordland National Park and our base for the next two nights.

Departing early from Te Anau, we drive deep into Fiordland to one of New Zealand's most amazing natural wonders for a Milford Sound Sea Kayaking adventure. Majestic does not come close to describing both the Milford Road drive and the Milford Sound itself.

We spend 4-5 hours in the sea kayaks exploring the sheer beauty of the fiord; discover the pristine glacial water flowing from Bowen Falls, paddle beneath towering cliffs clothed in primeval rainforest, view classic Mitre Peak and enjoy the presence of the Pembroke Glacier Wilderness Zone.

If weather conditions permit, we will take a brief lunch stop at a beach before returning to Deep Water Basin.

This is a remote and unique valley, well off the beaten track, where we get to enjoy spectacular scenery and and an elevation drop of 400m down to the banks of Lake Wakatipu. 

We end the day with the well earned cruise on Lake Wakatipu aboard the iconic steamship TSS Earnslaw back to Queenstown. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy Queenstown's famed scenic beauty.
