If you’re looking for something different to do this summer, you should definitely try Waiheke’s coolest activity: EcoZip Adventures. With glorious views over vineyards, the Hauraki Gulf and 800-year-old native forest, this trip will not disappoint.

We headed there as a team recently and had a blast. With a wonderful mix of Kiwi hospitality, adrenalin-pumping action and native forest walk, this is an activity with something for everyone. Highly recommended!

Merry Christmas everyone!
