Here are our top 5 must book tours in New Zealand – South Island.

You will have your own ideas already so comment below if you want to  recommend them to other travellers.

In no particular order..

1) Bungy Jump in Queenstown

Queenstown is the home of the original Bungy Jump site on the Kawarau bridge

Have you got what it takes to trow yourself off of a bridge, a ledge or out of a cable car?

Experience the ultimate adrenaline rush as you fly through the air hurtling towards the ground.

The sensation you feel when you jump can only be matched by the relief you feel as the Bungy tightens and you head back upwards.

When in the home of extreme sports and with 3 different Bungy jumps available you really should get on a Bungy and bounce around a bit.

If a Bungy jump doesn’t make the 5 must book tours – South Island New Zealand we don’t know what should!
