The Outdoor Adventure Playground. Discover New Zealand as it offers you a wide range of travelling options.
New Zealand provides a winter attraction for international skiers, leaping off bridges into surging river gorges on a bungee, or taking a stab at luging, Zorbing, sky diving, paragliding, kayaking, white-water rafting, and jet-boating. There's no lack of invention when it comes to adrenaline-pumping activities in this country.
But you don't have to be an extreme athlete to enjoy New Zealand. There are just as many ways to be laid-back and indulgent -- tour wineries that are world renowned; take in the wealth of Polynesian and Maori culture that forms the backbone of a multicultural society; or check out the strong historic and architectural reminders of a colonial past. There are lush gardens, art galleries, museums, and plenty of one-off reminders that New Zealand is like no other place.
New Zealand offers some of the most exciting vacation opportunities for families with kids. Hiking, swimming, sailing, and whale-watching are only a few of the activities children of all ages can enjoy. A day at the beach may well end up being one of their best memories, and you won't have to pay a cent for the pleasure. All cities and towns also have free parks, walkways, and children's playgrounds; and if you're here in summer, swimming pool complexes in most towns make for a fun, inexpensive day out for all the family.
Older, more adventurous kids will no doubt love caving, rafting, kayaking, and bungy jumping. Most sightseeing attractions admit children at half-price, and family prices are usually available.
