The wilds of New Zealand are perfect for adventure activities of every stripe. Here are five of the best ones adrenaline junkies should sign up for.
New Zealand has a long history of bungee jumping and the activity was popularized by Kiwi entrepreneur A. J. Hackett. There are loads of bungee sites in the country, including the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
Hurtle down a river in a high-powered jet boat for an unforgettable New Zealand experience. Get up close to the Huka Falls at Lake Taupo or take a tour on one of the rivers near Queenstown.
White Water Rafting
New Zealand is paradise for rafters. There are gentle rapids, extreme rapids and even the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world, at 7 meters.
Combiing swimming, abseiling, climbing and more, canyoning is a great adventure activity. Head off into the wilderness around Auckland, Wanaka or Coromandel to experience the best canyoning in New Zealand.
New Zealand is also a great place for skiing. For the ultimate off-piste experience take a heli-ski tour, in which you’ll fly to the top of a mountain before making your way down through untouched powder.
Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
