Explore Your Wild Side On Lake Wakatipu

Queenstown has gained a bit of an adventurous reputation. And it’s probably no surprise that there are a million and one different activities to take part in on or around Lake Wakatipu. Walk or cycle around this impressive expanse of water. Or have a go at parasailing or jet boating. Or even capture a bird’s eye view of this ridiculously beautiful location before taking it easy in one of the restaurants and watching the sun set on a brilliant day!

Fall In Love With Lake Tekapo

One of the most famous lakes in New Zealand, with everything from helicopter tours, trips to the hot springs, star gazing and air safaris. There’s a way to enjoy this spectacular landscape from every angle. And, if the weather is on your side, you should be able to catch a glimpse of New Zealand’s tallest mountain, Mt. Cook!

Explore Lake Taupo On Your Wild Kiwi Tour

This impressively large lake has something to offer absolutely everyone. Sail over to Mine Bay to admire the extraordinarily elegant Maori rock carvings. Or unleash your adventurous side by going rafting, skydiving or bungee jumping. Also take in the stunning geothermal scenery, which encompasses boiling lakes, hot mud pools and impressive geysers. You’ll also get to see Mount Ngauruhoe, which has a starring role in the Lord of the Rings films as Mount Doom!

Take In The Impressive Colours Of The Champagne Pool

Not far from Rotorua on the North Island is the Champagne Pool. It is part of the Wai-O-Tapu geothermal area famous for its show stopping geysers. Check out the famous Lady Knox, variety of mud pools and multi coloured waters. The colour palette of the scenery around you is seriously out of this world. It’s a bit like standing in the middle of an artist’s palette.
