Family Adventure Vacations – New Zealand


If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? That may be a hard question to answer so instead of racking your brain I’m just going to throw New Zealand out there.  Why am I just throwing New Zealand out there? Mostly because you can’t go to New Zealand and come back and say you didn’t enjoy it.  There is just no way this can happen, ever!  So grab the family and let’s go to New Zealand. Check out these amazing tours in New Zealand filled to the brim with great fun and adventure.

The Heli Hiking Franz Josef glacier tour takes three hours to complete and visitors will have a great time approaching the glacier by helicopter.  An expert pilot takes you sightseeing by helicopter with panoramic views of this pristine glacier.  You will land high up the glacier between two icefalls where your guided hike begins. Your guide will take you into the most spectacular icefall terrain, usually only seen by experienced mountaineers.  The experience provides a two-hour walk exploring pinnacles and ice caves on New Zealand’s South Island.

If you are ready to make a day of it, then book your tour for the Waitomo Caves and Rotorua Day Trip taking off from Auckland, New Zealand.  This daylong tour lasts for 13 hours of unimaginable sights to see and things to do.  Cave exploration is an incredibly fun thing to do when you see stalactites thousands of years old.  You will take a boat ride through a grotto where there are thousands of creepy glowworms hanging from cave ceilings as you cruise by.

The tour also includes a trip to the Te Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve where the whole family can explore geothermal vegetation, oozing mud pools and famous silica terraces.  Visitors are held spellbound when they watch the Pohutu Geyser come to life.

Have you always thought that one day you might get the opportunity to finally take a white water rafting trip?  We will even do better than that.  Why not schedule a safe and exhilarating Queenstown Triple Challenge adventure vacation? This is really going to be exciting and unbelievable.  The package includes a Shotover River jet boat ride with a private helicopter ride to Skippers Canyon.

White water rafting begins at Deep creek and finishes up at the Cascade rapid if you are up for it! Rest assured you would have competent river guides that will show you the ropes.  You will learn paddling techniques, safety procedures and be provided with your own wetsuit.  You are in for one fantastic trip through a series of exhilarating rapids like you won’t believe.  Oh what a vacation adventure!

Nature lovers cannot wait to book the Kaikoura Whale Watch day tour taking off from Christchurch, New Zealand.  Wow, just imagine seeing whale pods up close in their natural habitat.  The day starts with a relaxing drive through the countryside of North Canterbury and you catch your boat for the whale-watching tour at Kaikoura.  Chances are you will see albatross, frolicking dolphins and giant sperm whales as you enjoy adventure vacations with the family.
