Things to do in New Zealand

When you arrive in New Zealand’s South Island, the range of outdoor activities and scenic flights will ensure your stay is a memorable one. Stunning alpine scenery, crystal clear rivers and lakes and an uncrowded country side are complemented by some of the best owner-operated tourism activities you will find anywhere.

Bungy jumping

Queenstown is where bungy jumping in New Zealand was born, so if you’re feeling ready for it, try the Nevis Bungy jump near Queenstown with 143 metres of freefall.

There are bungee jumps off the Auckland Sky tower, ‘water touch’ bungy operations and a number of other thrilling options around the country for those in need of an adrenaline rush.

Jet boating

Developed by New Zealander William Hamilton, boating enthusiasts quickly realised the potential jets boats had for negotiating shallow rivers with speed and maneuverability.
Performing spins, and able to turn in their own length at speed, a number of established jet boat tour operators provide access to some of the country’s most beautiful and remote spots.


For many visitors their trip to New Zealand is incomplete until they have had the exhilaration of jumping from a plane above New Zealand's stunning landscape.

If you don't have the experience to jump solo, you can take lessons or jump in a tandem skydive in New Zealand, with a qualified instructor. No previous experience is required for a tandem jump, simply experience the thrill while being safely clipped on to a trained instructor who will control the entire skydive

Wine Tours

From sauvignon blancs to the more complex pinot noir varieties, New Zealand’s wine industry has established a reputation for high quality in a relatively short amount of time. A bonus for visitors is the stunning settings for the vineyards with some fantastic tasting venues and restaurants in all of the established wine regions complemented by some very knowledgeable and enthusiastic wine tour operators.

"This is a must do when visiting New Zealand - the U-Fly staff are so helpful and obliging - nothing is a trouble + the opportunity to fly a plane yourself is sensational."
