Take the leap!

New Zealand is the birthplace of the bungy jump, so to go home without doing one would almost be an insult to the country and an insult to your gap year.

On a brighter note, it’s extremely easy to find a good bungy jump. Because New Zealand is very pleased by the fact they gave the world this awesome adrenalin activity, there is pretty much a bungy jump around every corner. Whether its jumping into the ocean, jumping into a river, jumping in pairs, doing the highest jump or the smallest jump, New Zealand will accommodate your jumping needs.

Just to give you an idea of the bungy jumping possibilities in New Zealand, here’s a list of some epic bungy jumping locations.

4. Taupo Bungy

Submerge into the water from 47m by yourself or with a friend. It’s nice to share the feeling of exhilaration… or pure fear.

5. Thrillseeker’s Canyon Bungy

As the lowest bungy in New Zealand, it’s best to just tell people at home that you did a bungy jump – don’t go into details.

Location: Hanmer Springs, South Island

6. Kawarau Bridge Bungy

Where it all began: you too can jump the world’s first commercial bungy jump, which launched in 1988.

7. The Ledge Bungy

Bungy jump however the hell you want. The Ledge bungy is attached around your waist allowing you to spin/flip/fall in your own way. Try jumping at night to see the lights of Queenstown as you fall.

Location: Queenstown, South Island
