There are actually many good reasons to choose New Zealand as a holiday destination especially if you are searching for high adrenalin activities. New Zealand is also known as the “Adrenalin Capital of the World” with its myriad of activities like bungy jumping, spelunking, caving and so on. However, for those who are not into such activities, New Zealand also offers a other attractions that is suited for all ages.

A great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the country is to take part in the many walking tours available in the country.

Besides walking tours, New Zealand is littered with great cities and towns across the country which travellers can choose to stay and explore. Among the best cities in New Zealand are:



Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand and is the gateway to New Zealand for many tourists.  It is often cited as one of the best places to live in the world. The “City of Sails” as Auckland is known is full of impressive buildings and friendly locals. It is a great place to begin any New Zealand adventure.



South of Auckland is Rotorua, a charming town popular for its geothermal farms and Maori culture. Visitors to this place can witness the most amazing geysers and have a dip in any of the hot mud pools available.  Visitors should also visit the village of Te Wairoa which was completely buried by a volcanic eruption in the late 19th century.



Wellington, the capital of New Zealand lies in the southernmost part of the North Island. It is a vibrant and modern city and a good place to rest up before exploring the rest of the country.



Queenstown is the most visited city in the South Island, mainly because it is the place for most of the high adrenalin activities. Bungy jumping originated here back in the 80’s and has become a booming industry by itself. Other extreme sports popular in this area include mountain swinging, paragliding and jet boating.

New Zealand is on my bucket list.

Great article Terrence. Wishing to visit New Zealand sometimes soon. Your article helped a lot.


Last year my husband and I toured both the North and South islands during the month of February. We flew into Auckland then drove to the Coromandel Peninsula. Gorgeous area. We headed south along the coast through wine country and over to Wellington. On the South Island we enjoyed Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin and took a train/bus trip to Queenstown. Great trip all around. We write about our adventure and share photos at
