  1. Snorkel Goat Island – Just 1.5 hours from Auckland, this tiny island off the North Island is a snorkeler’s paradise. We’re talking marine life for days here! Have your underwater camera ready as you swim next to dolphins, snapper, crayfish, and more.
  2. Hike Franz Josef Glacier – Sure you may have hiked mountains and trails, but how often do you get to hike a glacier? If you’re not the best hiker, try helihiking, where a helicopter takes you up the mountain. When you need a break, change into your swimsuit and hop in a thermal pool.
  3. Bike the Otago Central Rail Trail – This 150km trail is the perfect way to bounce around from city to city, giving you the ultimate local experience. We suggest hopping on a bike and riding from vineyard to vineyard, sampling the incredible wine that makes this region famous.
  4. Kayak Milford Sound – Often described as the “8th Wonder of the World”, Milford Sound is a must-see for anyone traveling to New Zealand. This incredible fjord is home to breathtaking water, mountains, waterfalls, dolphins, and penguins. It’s best explored by kayak – letting you get around all the nooks and crannies of this incredible place, discovering hidden beaches along the way!
  5. Bungee Jumping – New Zealand knows bungee jumping – the sport was practically invented here. Prove how brave you are by jumping off the first commercial bungee jump site –  Kawarau Bridge. Our interns did it.

Now quit dreaming about a New Zealand adventure, and start planning your own!
