As I step out over the waterfall, I am very aware of the height which I would fall from if something was to go wrong. But I know it won’t go wrong as I am canyoning at Glentui, close to Christchurch, New Zealand’s South Island with Big Rock Adventures which should be at the top of any list when internet searching ‘Adventure Christchurch’ or ‘Canyoning Christchurch’.
New Zealand’s South Island is often considered one of the most stunning places on earth to visit. Because of its vibrant cities and numerous historical landmarks, however, the North Island attracts much more attention. In fact, the South Island only contains about 23% of the total country’s population! Although it’s sparsely populated, this island offers plenty of gorgeous landmarks, glaciers, mountains, and views to feast your eyes upon. There are also plenty of activities and adventures to partake in as well. The great news about visiting the South Island is that because so many of the attractions are outdoors, they are usually free! Here’s our pick of the top ten free things to do on this breathtaking Kiwi island.
