The South Island of New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places on earth.  It is blessed with golden beaches, dense rainforests, glaciers and lakes.   The South Island is home to the breath taking snow-capped Southern Alps, which runs along the entire length of the island.  Tranquil walking trails along mountainous terrain, ocean kayaking and adventure sports such as bungy jumping are its key attractions.

1. Go Bungy Jumping

  • Nevis Bungy and Hanmer Springs Bungy

Bungy jump into the void from incredible heights for the sheer thrill of it!  Jump from the 134-meter-high Nevis Bungy, the highest in New Zealand and the third-highest Bungy jump in the world!  Get a cable car out to the suspended platform in the middle of the gorge, and jump off to meet the Nevis Canyon floor.  For a similar experience, but at a much lower height of 35 meters, jump off from the historic bridge at Hanmer Springs Bungy.

2. Climb the Aoraki/Mt. Cook

Choose to climb the world-class 10,000-meter-high Mt. Cook, if you are the adventurous sort!  This impressive mountain climb involves sustained glacier travel with rock and ice climbing.  You can choose to negotiate the first 1200 meters by ski plane or helicopter as many climbers do.  Weather, snow and ice conditions dictate the level of difficulty in overcoming Mt. Cook.

3. Jet Boat on Dart River

Go on a journey of discovery, deep into the untouched natural wonderland of Mt. Aspiring National Park.  This is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Admire the breath-taking scenery.  Enjoy the exhilarating jet boat ride on the braided, glacier-fed rivers, with exciting 360o spins along the way.  Learn all about the rich history of the area, its early settlers, Maori legends and the Greenstone trail.
