What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Whatever thrill you seek, from the 216m Tsitsikama bungee jump to the splash of a whale’s tail-fin, there is something for you here – loads of things in fact. If you get the chance, visit the Siyazama Nursery School, founded and sponsored by Tsala. It is a great way to meet local people and understand more about the life and culture.

New Zealand’s amazing environment has long made it an adventure traveller’s destination of choice. Now it has found a whole new gear: luxury overdrive! To differentiate from the many good basic hotels, the very best lodges use helicopters to whisk you around, getting you off the beaten track and giving you a month’s worth of experiences in a week.

Nothing can quite prepare you for the variety of amazing landscapes you find in such a compact area here, making North Island a ‘must see’ on every world traveller’s itinerary for years. Now, though, you can do it in supreme luxury, and without taking a month off. Flying around by helicopter lets you sample all the best bits in just a week or two, and there is no better base than Huka Lodge. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
