New Zealanders have a rare talent for inventing some of the most bizarre action/adventure activities on the planet. It has a lot to do with our exploring background and the isolation and freedom to try anything that has never been done before. You can spend your whole time in New Zealand on an adrenaline high from Bungee jumping, sky diving, white water rafting, sand boarding, heli-skiing to name a few. Or maybe just take the occasional buzz with a jet boat ride or the luge. There is also the adventure of getting into some true wilderness on foot or via sea kayak. The options are endless and there will never be enough time.
