Adventure That is Hard to Beat
by: Chris Vincent - 02/12/2016
It is hard to imagine why New Zealand is nicknamed God's Own Country. Glacier-carved fjords, snow-capped peaks, shimmering alpine lakes—clearly, an adventurer's paradise.
For off the beaten path adventure, tours & sightseeing, it would be hard to beat a jet boat ride along glacier-fed Dart River. Followed by gentle canoeing in the Te Waipounamu World Heritage Area. Next, a 4WD route past Lord of the Rings filming locations. Lunch in a forested glade with spectacular mountain views with lessons on local flora, fauna & history.
If this doesn't tickle your travel adventure fancy, how about traversing Mount Aspiring National Park by horseback and paddling out to the conservation reserve of Pigeon Island by kayak?
Most travelers would say that Queenstown, New Zealand, is the adventure capital of the world. Having stayed / lived there for three months, I know first hand about the options for sightseeing, attractions and multi-day tours. The southern sky offers options for hot air balloon tours and my personal favorite, paragliding, over New Zealand's largest ski-able mountain range, the Remarkables. The day trips and excursions, cruises and water tours would be hard to match. However, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, now offers more!
Dubai, most known for its luxury shopping and ultramodern architecture
Dubai now trumps Queenstown for adventure. Where else can you experience camel safari rides, Atlantis, the world's largest snow park at Ski Dubai, shark walking, driving a Formula One race car at the Dubai Autodrome, a full-day Lamborghini Driving Experience, and see the largest skyscraper in the world? This is just a glimpse of what there is to see and do around Dubai. Find the ultimate mix of sights in the bustling city and thrilling adventures in the Arabian Desert.
