Planning a trip and stuck for ideas? Why not squeeze some of these activities into your itinerary!
New Zealand is the adrenaline junkie’s paradise and conveniently the home of bungee jumping! Head to Queenstown for the biggest bungee in New Zealand, and in fact Australasia, – the 134 meter Nevis Bungee. If plunging towards the Nevis River got you going, why not take things a step further and have a go on the Nevis Swing – the BIGGEST swing in the world!
Whether you’re a fan of the white stuff or looking for an adrenaline kick, there’s no better place to ski than at the host country of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. Popular ski resort towns include Whistler, Banff, and Mont-Tremblant, but if you’re searching for a place to ski in Canada, you won’t have to look far.
There’s a huge choice of national parks in the USA, each boasting their share of the world’s most beautiful natural scenery. Hike through the rocky mountains of Wyoming, the redwood forests of California, the glaciers of Alaska, or the most famous of them all: the Grand Canyon. Wherever you choose to hike, just remember your camera!
In a country of sun, sea, and sand you’re bound to hit the waves at some point. There are a huge number of places you could surf. Try the Gold Coast of Queensland – a surfer’s paradise where you’re sure to encounter surfers of all ages and abilities. Stay away from the top end of Australia for surfing though – the water there is full of sharks, box jellyfish and crocodiles!
If you’re a fan of wildlife South Africa is the right place for you. Take a trip to Kruger National Park to see elephants, lions, baboons, zebra and giraffe. You might even spot a leopard if you’re lucky! Whale watching is also popular in South Africa from June to November when the wales are migrating.
