1) Zorb, Raft and Luge

Zorbing - 5 must book tours New Zealand - North island

No trip to the North Island would be complete without a bit of craziness and fun.

Check out this tour Raft, Karting & Zorb

Lets face it you were heading to Rotorua anyway and with deals from $200 you would be crazy not to do it!

Looks like a bargain to me..

Zorbing is guaranteed to get the blood racing as you go bouncing off down the slopes in a big inflatable ball.

Just be glad Ronaldo isn’t sending you down the hiss as the way he spins the ball could make you go crazy.

Finishes Zorbing then Rafting has to be one of the most exhilarating experiences you can soak up in any country.

Gliding down the white water and catapulting out of the rapids in a big old inflatable raft down a crazy river is top of the list in my view.

Managed to survive the the Zorb and the rafting, then put your skills to the test  racing against your mates for the ultimate bragging rights…This just HAS TO BE BOOKED!

4) Skydive over Lake Taupo

When in New Zealand, jump out of a plane in Taupo.

After doing a Bunjy jump in Auckland the Boss was less concerned about doing a skydive but Skydiving has to be one of the best things you can ever do.

There is something mind bendingly surreal about leaping from a plane thousands of feet above the ground but that is what makes it so special.

You really can never recreate the feeling that you have the first time you find yourself floating through the air.

Yes that’s right, I said floating…

Go Tandem or Go Solo

Book a tandem jump and you don’t go it alone.  Instead soak up the tension in the plane with a few mates and share banta with the instructors, sweeeeeeett.

Before you know it the door is open, your feet hang outside door and your instructor jumps over you, off you go.

It is a bit mental for a few seconds as you fall rapidly to terminal velocity.

Soon you will feel like you are laying on a massive cushion with some bloke strapped to your back.

Some of you may be very familiar with this pose but for some it is highly unusual i can assure you.

The next minute and a half (Again a few of you may relate haha) you float about pulling lots of funny poses and playing with the rushing air all around you.

Your feet will fly upwards as the chute opens and you dangle your way down to the ground hoping it isn’t you that stacks it on the landing.

Skydiving is an absolutely brilliant experience and 100% makes the 5 Must book Tours in New Zealand – North Island

Even the most scared people cant help but smile, hug the rest of the crew, laugh and kiss the ground after a safe landing.

Get it done!

90 Mile beach is beach 90 miles long &  fantastic place to soak up some energy and reinvigorate your soul.

You will be faced with warning signs telling you all about the violent seas splashing up these shores.

It is quite a tranquil place despite the whistling winds and violent sea dragging along the beach, we love it.

People less aware of the dangers often lose their cars, vans and 4×4’s to the sea here so take care.

I wouldn’t take a dip if I was you.
