Day 6 | White Water Rafting Off A Waterfall
Did you know New Zealand is home to the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall?
Well, the Travel Guides found out, plunging seven metres off a waterfall into the water below. It looked exhilarating.
There are eleven wild rapids and three waterfalls to raft as the water winds through the jungle canyon. If you love adventure and nature, it’s the perfect experience for you.
COST: Kaituna River Rafting costs $115NZD (about $113AUD) per adult. You might also want to set aside a little money for the photos, just to prove you did it!
Day 7 | Zorbing The Steepest Fastest Track In The World
“Like a washing machine on turbo cycle.” – The Frens
Another fun fact – Zorbing was invented in Rotorua in 1994! And it’s here you can roll down the steepest, fastest track in the world.
There are four tracks to choose from, so if you’re feeling a bit afraid, then you can opt for a gentler slope too.
COST: Zorb Rotorua ranges from $40NZD (roughly $39AUD) for single ride on the straight track, $60NZD (roughly $59AUD) for a single ride on either the SideWinder or Big Air tracks, or $75NZD (roughtly $74AUD) on the Mega Track – this one is the longest, steepest, and fastest downhill rolling track in the world. You can also get multiride deals from $120 to $170NZD (around $118 to $167AUD) per person.
Day 7 | Railcruising In The Countryside
Maybe adrenaline isn’t your thing. In that case, like the Husbands and the Snobs, you can go for a gentle railcruising experience through the peaceful countryside as a more relaxing alternative.
COST: Railcruising costs $76NZD per adult (around $75AUD).
And there you have it – everything the Travel Guides did in North Island New Zealand!
