There’s plenty of weird and whacky experiences to try across New Zealand. Here are five out-of-the-box activities to add to your bucket list in 2018 – because, why not?
Vintage tractor gannet colony tour
It’s not every day you get to ride through a Gannet colony on a vintage tractor! Explore the rugged coastline of New Zealand’s east coast to the famous Cape Kidnappers gannet colony. This experience is perfect for young and old.
The idea of getting into a bath of mud anywhere else in the world seems pretty strange – but not in New Zealand! It’s perfectly normal to lather up in a mud bath then rinse off in some natural hot springs.
Off-Road Mountain Shredder Tour
This bad boy is a combination of a skateboard, Segway, jetski, tank and motocross bike – this all-terrain vehicle will take you anywhere, and it’s the perfect adrenaline-fuelled way to explore Arrowtown.
Considering the bungy jump originated in New Zealand, if you’re going to do it, you may as well do it at an iconic location like the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Start 2018 in style!
Submersible shark thrill ride
Where else in the world can you dive underwater in your very own submersible shark? In this adrenaline-inducing adventure, you’ll experience huge leaps, dives and side rolls as well as tight g-force turns.
