What kind of things can I see and do on a Gap Year in New Zealand?

Simply put, what you canít do in New Zealand is a far, far shorter list than what you can. New Zealand has sights, tours and experiences of every kind although if you are an outdoors lover or particularly nature-passionate you are going to be heaven. Bucket-list items can be ticked off at a great rate of knots; New Zealand doesnít go by the name of adventure capital of the world for nothing. Choose from base jumping, bungee, skydiving, paragliding, hang-gliding, dune-boarding, shark cage diving, white water rafting, surfing, skiing, extreme caving and so much more. Hiking and tramping, climbing, mountain biking and cycling and horse-riding also come in a wide range of experience types lasting from hours to weeks, suitable for both complete beginners and the hardcore experienced. On the more unusual or unique side of things to do you can visit live volcanoes, soak in natural hot springs, float down underground streams in cave systems lit by glow worms, visit one of the few dark sky reserves in the world for off-the-scale stargazing or abseil into an ice cave on a glacier. Awesome wildlife experiences include whale watching safaris, swimming with wild dolphins, conservation island tours and night adventures to spot kiwi. And the list goes on.
