  • Adventure and excitement in Waikato, New Zealand

    2010-09-09

    Just a short drive away from Auckland, adventure travelers looking for fun and excitement won't be disappointed by the varied activities offered at the Adventure Waikato property.

    Waikato is an expansive section of New Zealand nature, with lush jungles, beautiful waterfalls, miles of caves and verdant valleys. In fact, the trip might be worth it simply for the spectacular views and interesting flora and fauna alone.

    But adventure travelers will get even more out of Waikato, according to the New Zealand Herald. The tour company that operates here offers a number of excursions, including spelunking, rappelling and a zip line over a gully.

    The experience works in an "a la carte" fashion. Each trip has its own price and must be booked in advance, ranging from the four to five hour "Jurassic Stroll" to one-off activities like skeet shooting and archery. Travelers can search for glow worms in the underground cave network, learn some rock climbing skills, traverse a muddy swamp or cross streams and rivers on complex rope bridges, just to name a few of the activities offered here. The property also places an emphasis on safety and many of the activities are family-friendly.

    Thrill seekers on a trip to New Zealand may want to stop by the reservation in order to partake in one of the many excursions offered.
