Adventure Holidays

Lodges of New Zealand combine tranquil and relaxing accommodation with thrilling adventure experiences. Take a helicopter from the lodge and land on a glacier or peer into a volcano, take the plunge with white water rafting or combine a hiking-jetboating-scenic flight into the wilderness. Take the helm of a sailing boat or the handlebars of a Harley.
