9 Amazing New Zealand Experiences

New Zealand is not a country that does things by halves. So much more than just a nice backdrop to Ian Mckellen’s horse riding antics, it’s a wild, seeking, joyful, seemingly limitless land stuffed full of adventures just for you. Which ones specifically? Read on for a glimpse into everything waiting for you when you turn left at Australia and go straight on till morning…

And while your on the road why not add some of our freshest unsigned musical talent from around the world to your playlist – with STA Travel Sounds. Check out the artists here

Bay of Islands
Famous for stunning blue waters and miles of rugged coastline, there’s more to the BOI than bobbing around beautiful coves. As well as chilling on the sand you can jump on a glorified ironing board and surf down it. Te Paki sand dunes are at the top of 90 mile beach by Cape Reinga, which is a beautiful 3 hour drive from Paihia in the Bay of Islands. Sandboarding is just like real surfing only you have to climb back up a steep sand dune every time you want to go again! It is mega fun though, honest!

Waiheke Island
Be a beach bum, zipline alongside a brave mate, go on a wine tasting tour, explore underground WWII tunnels, spot dolphins and loads more on this little slice of paradise.Grab a ferry from Auckland and you’ll be there in 40 minutes!

Rafting in Rotorua is not only pleasingly alliterative, it also means you get to row over the world’s highest raftable waterfall! The Kaituna River is also the warmest river in New Zealand, so when you inevitably take a dip, you shouldn’t come out blue. Boats not your thing? Rotorua’s geothermic activity means there are enough hot pools for you to get warm in, no raft required.

Abel Tasman
Another stunning coastal location (look it’s an island, there’s a lot of coast) Abel Tasman National Park in the north of the South Island (not confusing) is known for being just damn beautiful thank you very much. Kayak the coves and find the split apple rock – it’s not hard to spot.


West Coast
Aside from having names any self-respecting indie band would consider, the Fox and Franz Joseph glaciers on the west coast are a brilliant for exploring. Take a helicopter to the top, hike through ice tunnels, enjoy incredible views and generally pretend to be a woolly mammoth. Just us?

Milford Sound
Part of the Fiordland National Park (New Zealand does good names), Milford Sound is known for being an absolutely stunning patch of land and sea in a country known for its stunning patches of land and sea. Yep, it’s just that beautiful.

The home of adrenalin sports, if you can throw yourself off it, raft through it, swing over it or dive out of it, Queenstown’s got it. Just in case your heart needs any more pressure on it, the city is also home to the legendary Fergburger, a total must if you find yourself with a spare minute between jumps.

Have we wetted your New Zealand appetite? These are just a few of the amazing activities waiting for you! Learn more here and get ready to pack it all in and jump on a plane.
