Need something to get your blood pumping this Christmas?
In addition to the scenic landscapes, unparalleled natural reserves and diverse flora, New Zealand offers probably the world’s most extensive assortment of extreme sports.
I came across this article recently about the most extreme places to visit in the world. Queenstown came in at number two, which is nothing to be ashamed of considering one is a crazy as “sport” (read: suicide attempt) that I don’t think any place can really top. So at least bungee cords and sky diving at some support. The Swiss Eiger jump is absurd.
Anyway, take a look at the article from National Geographic for some ideas about where to go this Christmas if you’re feeling frisky and too antsy to just sit around the Christmas tree.
