A truly bucket-list New Zealand activity is skydiving – it doesn’t get anymore adventurous than that. At the Wānaka Airport, hop into the iconic orange plane and take a jump from 15,000 feet.
If jumping from a plane isn’t your thing, check out heli-biking. Taking off from the Wānaka airport, your helibike guide will take you to some of the Wānaka region’s most untouched trails.
If you’re feeling independent, check out U-Fly Wānaka – where you can fly the plane yourself! And if you want to get in the air for some sightseeing, Alpine Helicopters and Wanaka Helicopters are your go-to.
After all that, take a short drive down the road to the Luggate Hotel for some well-earned local craft beers and a pub feed.
