Bungee jumping requires you to step off a sky-high ledge voluntarily, with your only safety being that you’re attached to a long cord, arguably making it one of the most terrifying adventure activities out there.
For the pleasure-seekers wanting to get their pulse racing, you can’t visit New Zealand without braving a Bungy jump. After all, New Zealand is home to the world’s first Bungy jump and was historically a pioneer in the activity’s commercialisation.
Take your plunge at the original Kawaru Bungy Site or dare to leap from New Zealand’s highest at the top of Nevis. Both are found, as you guessed, in the picturesque Queenstown. If you can concentrate, attempt to admire the sparkling blue lakes and surrounding mountains as you zoom through the air.
However, as the home of Bungy, you’ll have plenty of options wherever you are in the country. For a completely difference Bungy experience, take a leap of faith from Auckland’s Harbour Bridge in the North Island with the city skyline as your backdrop.
