 Anyone can join – so long as you’re aged between 13 and 113!  There’s no need for ‘sea legs’ and no experience of boats is necessary. Our crew will give you all the support and guidance you could possibly need. We are totally cool if you want a spectator role - or you fancy joining in – hoisting the sails or using some bicep muscle as a grinder. Just bring soft soled non marking trainers, a couple of layers of clothes and we’ll provide the rest… The racing itself is about an hour long so you’ll be back at the Viaduct in time to share some fantastic stories over a drink or dinner in one of the many good bars and restaurants.

The team who started Chuffed did so after working as near neighbors to the Zorb team, at Rotorua Canopy Tours. After years of working closely with the Zorb team, seeing first hand their amazing experiences & fun & professional customer service style, it was a no brainer for us to bring Zorb on as one of our first partner businesses!

TripAdvisor declared Rotorua Canopy Tour's Ultimate Experience the 11th best experience in the world in 2021. That's pretty high praise!

You need to allow yourself 3.5 hours to experience this activity which is surprisingly suitable for almost everyone.

After meeting at their base on the outskirts of Rotorua where you meet you guides who ooze professionalism and fun times, you'll be transported up to a magical forest that appears to have been lost in time. You'll immediately be struck with how you feel as you are transported to another world full of amazing trees, ferns, smells and noise.

Perhaps the most impressive feat by the team at Canopy Tours is over the past 10 years they have removed all the possums and rats from this once unloved and forgotten slice of New Zealand forest and restored it to a pest free environment - so much so that you can spot many bird species and in an amazing highlight of the experience, even handfeed wild robins.

The experience consists of 6 ziplines for a total of 1.2 kilometres. They vary from shooting you through tight gaps in the forest layer to giant swooping flights through deep forested valleys. There is even a 400 metre tandem line so you can race you partner... but this tour is so much more than an adrenaline rush.

In addition there are a number of suspended bridges that span wide valleys, floating staircases and one of the highlights - the 50 metre high cliff walk - that appears seemingly out of no where as you arrive perched high on it after a zipline flight out of the forest canopy.

It's a truly special experience, suitable for anyone with a okay level of fitness. It operates in all weather but does suspend operations when high winds exist.

Please note there are risks associated with this experience which you will need to familiarise yourself with and acknowledge at the time of booking. Read more at https://www.canopytours.co.nz/safety/

Original Canopy Tour

In 2021 TripAdvisor, the world's largest traveller review site named Rotorua's Original Canopy Tour the #1 Nature Activity in the WORLD. Thrilling visitors since 2012 with its unique combination of adventure tourism and conservation this is a experience you will not forget.

Located deep in an ancient native forest only 15 minutes from Rotorua, that has been painstakingly restored over over the last 10 years, into a safe haven for native birds and creatures you'll traverse this magnificent environment via a series of walking trails, suspended forest bridges and ziplines. It's a truly magnificent experience. If you're lucky you'll even handfeed wild native birds.

Soar through the trees and experience New Zealand’s ancient forest like never before. Step back in time in this native forest and come face to face with towering trees and native flora untouched for centuries in one of the most intact native eco-systems you’ll find anywhere in New Zealand. Immerse yourself in this breath-taking country the way it once was and hear the beautiful birdsong of New Zealand native birds including Tuis, North Island Robins, Kereru and Tomtits in their natural habitat.

Embark on a network of ziplines, swing bridges, cliff-walks, tree top platforms and more which journey deep into 500 hectares of ancient forest. A uniquely intimate experience, each tour has a limit of 10 people, meaning more time with your guides who are highly trained to keep you safe, make you smile and teach you amazing things as they bring the forest to life.

It’s an adventure that puts you at the heart of the forest restoration story, with every ticket purchased contributing to conservation efforts. To date, 220 hectares of the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve have been restored by removing thousands of predators. Together with their customers they have brought the forest back to life and created a forest eco-sanctuary for birdlife to flourish.

Equal parts inspiring, fun and educational, this award-winning adventure is a must-do adventure activity perfect for all ages. Lose yourself on this engaging encounter with the natural world and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Hot Tub Soak

You get your own tub for your party, no interruptions or rowdy swimmers with you – great! The 12 tubs are secluded and set outside amongst the tree ferns, with optional umbrellas over the tub to shade you from the sun or rain. At night you soak in a magical setting of lanterns amongst the beautifully lit surrounding native bush.

Oh, and what goes well with a hot tub soak after a big day’s adventure? A nice cold craft beer or cider or refreshing beverage of your choice. Just like a journey to our favourite hot stream in the bush, there's built in lots of cool little surprises for you to discover on your visit to Secret Spot. After showering and changing in brand-new cedar facilities, and picking up your flax kete (basket) with craft beverage of your choice, you head down the boardwalk through the ferns to find your secluded hot tub next to the Waipa stream. Relax, share the stories from your day’s adventures, and connect with nature.

Ever dream of flying?

Now you can!

iFLY Queenstown is NZ's only indoor skydiving attraction based in central Queenstown.  iFLY creates a smooth, wall-to-wall cushion of air on which anyone can safely float - no experience necessary. Simply lean into the airflow and that's it - you're flying!

You'll have an instructor by your side through the whole experience - they will give you an orientation on the basics of flying so you can get the most out of your flights. Once you've been briefed you'll receive your full flight gear which includes a helmet and flight-suit.

Once in the wind tunnel, your instructor will be right by your side providing personal instruction and will be able to demonstrate new skills as you improve.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

We think this is a really fun activity that is suitable to so many people. While it's not the same as climbing in an aeroplane and jumping out from 15,000 feet - not everyone wants to do that - so we think this is a perfect sweet spot. And who knows....maybe this will inspire you to take on a real skydive! Alex and Tayla from Chuffed visited iFLY in 2021 and had a ball!

Adults
Experience Provider: Raglan Surf School

Catch some waves in Raglan with a group surf lesson. This coastal town with its magnificent black sand coastline is an absolute surfing mecca. Raglan offers world-class surf breaks and some of the most consistent surf in the country. With a bit of help from your instructor you'll be riding the waves like a pro in no time.

The group lesson starts at Ngarunui Beach car park 5 minutes outside Raglan. Raglan Surf School chose to have a maximum ratio of 6 students to 1 instructor, this means they’re able to offer you plenty of personalised tips.

First, you’ll learn the basics of surfing and surfboard vocabulary, stance, posture and a proper dose of water and beach safety.

You’ll be fully prepared before you hit the surf! You’ll get  custom fitted for a wetsuit and surfboard at the iconic Red fire-truck and wooden trailer, located at Ngarunui Beach car park.

After a quick regroup on the sand you’ll have your instructor right there beside you in the surf ready to help you choose your waves, help line your board up and even push you into waves. The goal is to have you paddling into waves yourself by the end of the lesson.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Raglan is known globally for its iconic breaks & surf culture. Less known is that it's also home to NZ's original surf school, and barely known by anyone, Raglan Surf School were one of Chuffed's very first partner businesses! We have heard nothing but rave reviews from our customers who have surfed with these guys, so don't hesitate about this one for any reason!
