Queenstown, New Zealand, isn’t known as the Adventure Capital of the World for nothing! Here’s a sampling of the adrenaline-inducing activities that you can try on the South Island’s most fun town.


Sky Diving

No adventure-centric trip to New Zealand is complete without jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. The views are outstanding and worth every panic attack. NZONE is one company to consider. They have excellent, experienced employees to make your skydive as comfortable as possible.


Bungy Jumping

The AJ Hackett Nevis Bungy is 134 meters above the Nevis River, and it’s another must-do. Don’t worry, there’s no whiplash, and the company has an excellent safety record. The scenery alone should help relax any fears.


Canyon Swinging

Do you want to get strapped to a plastic lawn chair, and then tip yourself backwards off of a cliff over the Shotover River? Then try canyon swinging. Actually, you can jump off of the platform any way you want!


Horseback Riding

Horseback riding near Queenstown can be as calm or as adventurous as you like. Walk, trot or gallop at a breakneck speed through the countryside. Dart Stables is a fantastic company to ride with.



If you don’t want to jump out of a plane or off of a platform, take a hike. Ask your hostel or hotel for some recommendations around town, and prepare for some stunning scenery.

What to Do During a Trip to Morro Bay, California

No, it’s not Monterey Bay. We’re talking Morro Bay, California, located about a 2.5-hour drive to the south, about halfway between San Jose and Los Angeles. A quieter destination, Morro Bay offers plenty for the outdoor adventurer to enjoy.
