our adventure and adrenaline tours

New Zealand is one of the world’s top destinations for thrilling adventures, and at Maori Trails, we call it the ‘home of adventure tourism’. It is not a coincidence that activities like the Jet Boats, Bungee Jumping or Skydiving have their roots in New Zealand. We have collected a selection of adventure & fun activities that suit all levels of confidence – from Heli-skiing and skydiving to off-roading, horse riding and white (and black-!) water rafting.
