A beautiful and rugged island close to Australia, New Zealand is any adventurous traveler’s dream destination. With trekking, rafting, climbing and exploring opportunities aplenty, New Zealand offers up lots of opportunities to get a much needed shot of adrenaline. If you like sheep, that’s a bonus also, as one of the main careers on this gorgeous isle is sheepherding. With its patchworked hill sides, deep fjords, and sparese population, New Zealand is truly an outdoorsman’s (or outdoorswoman’s) dream. I mean, who wouldn’t want to visit a country that has been called “God’s Own Country” and “Paradise of the Pacific.” It’s mountainous terrain, lush green countryside and spectacular coast, there is a reason this island has also been dubbed one of the top travel destinations in the world. You can visit geysers and soak in hot pools in Rotura or skydive, bungee jump, jet-boat and thrill yourself to exhaustion in Queenstown. Whether you want to hang out near the ocean or visit national parks, vineyards and orchards, New Zealand is an ideal place to explore.
Because New Zealand has so much to offer travelers and so many different and equally spectacular areas, figuring out where to go and what to see may be a challenge. A great way to get the most out of New Zealand adventure (and not get lost on a trek through the mountains) is to sign up for a small group adenture tour. Not only will you not miss out on any of the adrenaline pumping, thrilling activities, you are also sure to see New Zealand’s most spectacular scenery. You may be thinking that travel tours are only for old people and consist mostly of sitting on a uge air-conditioned bus next to Edna and Bob. But, the truth is travel tours have come a long way since the days of giant air-conditioned buses and old ladies. Today there are tours designed specifically for the independent, adventure traveler. That’s right—active, interesting and adventurous tours that allow travelers to explore and experience a foreign place. First off, they keep the groups small, usually capping out at 16 people, so you won’t be traveling around with some awkwardly huge group of gawking tourists. Second, these tours don’t just scratch the surface of the places you visit. In fact, by using a combination of local and experienced guides, you’ll often see and experience MORE than you would on your own. Also, because these tours have already been developed to showcase the best of the best, you’ll save yourself from countless hours of potentially pointless research trying to find out where to go and what to eat. Oh, and don’t worry, you definitely won’t be experiencing New Zealand from the window of a bus. You’ll be trekking, rafting and having the outdoor adventure of a lifetime. So, buckle up and get ready for a thrill ride to NZ.
