From luxury sailing experiences against Jurassic backdrops to kite surfing across pure and choppy waters; New Zealand has many an offering powered by the force of the wind element….
Fly across the water as a kite-boarder
The Karikari Peninsula in the north of New Zealand is the perfect place to try your hand at this adventurous pursuit. Kari means wind in Maori, so it’s clear why this stretch of water between the Bay of Islands and 90 Mile beach is one of the world’s best locations for kite surfing. Feel the adrenaline pump through you veins as you tackle the waves and you’ll quickly realize why this sport is so incredibly addictive.
Soar above middle earth
A helicopter ride whilst in New Zealand is an absolute must; the stunning landscapes and coastlines take on a whole new beauty from an aerial perspective. Board your aircraft and fly above Glenorchy and Milford Sound, watching as Middle Earth unfolds below you. Land atop a mountain peak for a moment of reflection as you breathe in the purest mountain air, miles away from another human soul.
Circumnavigate the bay of islands
Off the coast of Kerikeri and in the crystal waters of the Pacific Ocean lies New Zealand’s Bay of Islands; a myriad of 144 islands and home to some of the world’s most beautiful flora and fauna. Here you can explore nature’s finest creations, alongside old colonial settlements on a luxurious sailing boat. With the wind in your sails and stunning scenery all around; life on the water has never looked so good.
