Adventure Activities New Zealand
New Zealand, with its stunning natural and cultural diversity, is like a country you see in dreams, but only better because here is a plethora of exciting activities to indulge in. From adventure activities like trekking, water sports, and bungee jumping to luxury splurges like cruising and extensive shopping, there is never a dearth of activities to do in New Zealand at all.
Shopping in New Zealand
Among the diverse stuffs to do in New Zealand, shopping is certainly one. The country has some very unique things to offer, which you can bring back home as souvenirs. Collecting Maori decorative items is a very common thing among tourists. Other than that, pounamu or jade stone ornaments, glass and wood items, merino wool and possum knitted winter-wear are some other things to buy here. All the cities in New Zealand have more than enough places to shop to the heart’s content, especially Auckland and Christchurch.
Adventure activities in New Zealand
Among the most-favoured New Zealand tourist activities is adventure. Any off the edge fun and exciting adventure activity that you can think of, New Zealand has got it. Skydiving, bungee jumping, jet boating, water rafting, cave hiking, zip lining, canyoning and the list goes on of the adventure activities that New Zealand has to offer.
Here are some of the other New Zealand activities to do.
1. Bungee jumping
Bungee jumping is one of the best things to do in New Zealand. Auckland Harbour Bridge is a very popular location for the sport, with a plunge of 40 metres into the ocean. Here is the world’s first commercial bungee jump as well, at Kawarau Bridge. But to take it up a notch, try the jump at Nevis Canyon which is the world’s third highest bungee jump from 134 metres height.
2. Explore Maori culture in New Zealand
A visit to New Zealand is incomplete without exploring the Maori culture thoroughly. Some of the best places to do so are Rotorua, Hokianga, Kaikoura, Waimarama, and the Bay of Islands in Waitangi where the Waitangi Treaty was signed between the Maori and European people.
3. Visit the Hobbiton
Among the things to not miss in New Zealand, Hobbiton is one, especially if you are a fan of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit movies. The green fields which are only a couple of hours drive from Auckland were used as a set for the location of Shire in the movie, where the hobbits Bilbo Baggins and his nephew Frodo lived in their house, Bag’s End. The place has been recreated for the fans to enjoy the Hobbit experience, with a couple of places like Green Dragon Pub and Shires Rest thrown in to add to the charm.
4. Swim with dolphins in Bay Island
Bay Islands are not only a destination to explore Maori culture, but also to have great underwater experience. Other than scuba diving, one can also enjoy swimming with the friendly pods of dolphins. Because the sea water around the North Island is comparatively warmer, you can enjoy swimming comfortably here without a wetsuit.
5. Hiking along the trails
Hiking is among the most beautiful yet underrated things to do in New Zealand. Some of the best trails to explore the country are Abel Tasman Coast Track, overnight hike at Mueller Hut Route, Buck Taylor Track Loop, Mount Victoria Trails, Abbey Caves, Franz Josef Glacier and the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing, otherwise known as the land of Mount Doom to the LOTR fans.
Piha Beach In Auckland
Tired of your busy schedule? Fed up of those beach trips to Goa and Gokarna? Fear no more as you now have a new place to visit. It might be an international one, but it will definitely be worth a visit due to its grandeur and decoration. Piha Beach in Auckland to the rescue, has qualities just like its name, it is very sere...

Trip to HimachalSome of the hotels are good but locations are not easily accessible particularly when there are aged tourists with you. As for New Delhi hotels, please check with the hotel authorities whether they really meet star standards. For example, Good Luck hotel at Delhi does not fulfil the standards of a three star hotel. They don't even have plates to serve the food. Manali Hotel was the best. Hotel at Shimla was very co-operative and extended all possible assistance. On the way back, New Delhi hotel was very good. In all the hotels, except Good Luck, the staff members were very helpful.
Trip to DelhiIt's awesome experience with Amazing India Tours. We have completed the tour with some wonderful memories. Our driver was so nice & gentleman. Ritesh was also so co-operative. Thanks Travel Triangle, Thanks Amazing India Tours.
Trip to Sri LankaNew Delhi (Delhi), India 227 The best ! Review of Pearly Gates Lanka Reviewed 2 days ago When I booked the tour through Pearly gates I was expecting good service, but ended up being totally overwhelmed by the experience I had with this company. I first contacted Nimni over phone and was happy at her prompt answers and friendly tone.I booked with her soley on the basis of what I could guage of her over conversations on phone.( Travel Triangle was the aggregator) She had promised me a good guide cum driver and a big van for the three of us (my husband, son and I ). Rikfy picked us up from my hotel first ( I was atteding an international conference) and then my family from the airport and the next seven days we spent in Paradise ! He was a careful driver, a wonderful guide and a true friend. Attentive at all times, smiling advising, he made our tour truly special. Behind all this was Nimni - calling us to find if everything was ok. They had booked good hotels, the travel by van was very comfortable but most important - the personal touch at every moment by Rikfy made everything special. On the last evening we ordered dinner at the restaurant in Hotel Ocean Colombo but when the food didnt come even after almost an hour we were very upset. We called Rikfy and though it was after 10.30 pm he came and took us to an Arabian restaurant. As some of us are diabetic this was a life saver !.I recommend Pearly gates to everybody if you want true service with a smile,and Nimni and Rikfy really make you feel at home in Sri Lanka !
Trip to DelhiI had planned 2 weeks trip with my family to Delhi amrithsar agara mathura and vrindavan through dejohns travels. The team ( Mr Manoj, Mr Manpreet and Mr Rajesh were well organised and had a good experience with their service , very polite , punctual and understand your requirements and made changes accordingly. They arranged guide for site seeing in agara , mathura n vrindavan. Mr vivek did a very good job . Overall enjoyed my vacation and will definitely plan one more very soon The best was Wagah Border event and the Taj Mahal Beautiful picture clicked by the guide.
Trip to MaldivesThings are very exiting. We enjoyed a lot , its a whole new experience. Awesome place for vacation, different cuisine to try. The only difficulty we had was during the time of Resort checkin at the Airport. The Speed boat transfer person denied to board the boat as the payment was not received by the Resort. I had to contact the travel agent multiple times and after few hours the confirmation was made and then we started our journey.
Trip to Char DhamNot happy at all. The price was too high as compared to the services provided. Out of 4 hotels only 2 was good and other 2 hotels were completely bullshit. The hotels were very untidy, not cleaned even the beds were without bed sheets. New Himachal House & Hotel Ganga both were too bad hotels. Not even 1 start I guess. The driver who was with us was so slow in driving that he wasted lots of time of ours. I did not find the package to be worthy at all.
Trip to BaliWe had an amazing experience. The cab was really good and we got a new car which was hardly used. Only advice - please clean the car (interior included) everyday before the guests onboard. Our driver Surya from Indo Jaya Travels was a nice chap. We had a small issue regarding our spa schedule and we contacted Akash (from Journey Routers) to help us. The service was prompt and the issue was resolved pretty quickly. Overall - very good experience and I would definitely look forward for more tours with Travel Triangle + Journey Routers.

Trip to HimachalOur trip has been a memorable one, thanks to Cesta Journey, they are one of the most professional travel agents available on travel triangle. They have followed up with me on daily basis and have enquired about the hotels, cab and food. In Dharmshala we have to change the hotel as the hotel provided to us was not that good, Cesta Journey have helped us there as well, they have followed up with the hotel management and have shifted us to a new and comfortable hotel. The driver Mr. R.P Singh is one of the finest and humble human being we have met, his driving skills are the example of perfection. He is well aware of the route and knows all the places and have good contacts if you are looking to go to Rohtang. In the end I would like to extend my heartfelt of gratitude to Cesta Journey, travel triangle and Mr. R.P Singh for making this a memorable one.
Trip to DelhiIt was a good trip with a great driver. But had some dissatisfaction with the way the travel agent from Carlo travels supported. The check-in timings of the hotels are not mentioned in the voucher because of which had to pay an extra amount as we reached early before the check-in time. I have also sent my flight tickets to the agent well before to plan the schedule accordingly. They should have informed me before itself regarding the same.
