Take a Private Surf Lesson at Raglan

Catch some waves in Raglan with a private surf lesson.

Learning to surf is a truly unforgettable experience and Raglan is one of the greatest surfing destinations in New Zealand to do so.

If you’re a complete novice, or if you’ve already surfed a bit and you’re looking to take your surfing to the next level, maybe venture further out the back to catch green waves; a private lesson is perfect for you.

Raglan’s professional instructors can tailor your lesson to suit your ability and will spend every moment teaching just you. They’ll get you progressing faster!

A private lesson allows the instructor to understand your needs quicker so they can adapt their teaching methods to your personality, style and level.
You’ll get to learn to read the waves and understand the spot.

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.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

We’ve found learning to surf to be  popular choice by Chuffed recipients. We think it’s probably one of those things people would like to try but never get around to it. So when you are given a gift with it as an option, suddenly there is a reason. And we have found the team at Raglan Surf to be a delight to work with.

Guided full day Horse trek across Rangitikei Hill Country

Full day High Country Horse Trek

Full day High Country Horse Trek

A full day ride exploring the enchantment of the unique countryside this part of the world has to offer. You need to be comfortable in the saddle at all gaits over all-terrain to really enjoy this.

River Valley Stables operates at some of the highest elevations of any trekking operation in New Zealand; consequently, weather conditions can change quickly. This can alter our choice of trails used on any given day.

If the weather is looking okay, then the ride will be to the top of Pukeokahu (1000 metres above sea level), what we call a hill, but many would call a mountain. Many of the trails are steep; however, the views from the top are incredible – you will just have to take our word for it and check them out yourself!

The top of Pukeokahu is an excellent place for your lunch stop on a lovely summers day.

Group size will be small, and you will need to be a competent rider.  River Valley Stables guides will take special care to match you with a horse that you will enjoy.  Before the ride, you will be given instruction to feel competent riding freestyle and understanding our Natural Horsemanship techniques.

Rotorua Icons: Ultimate Canopy zipline tour & 2 Zorb rides

Canopy Tours:

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 truely magnificent experience. If your 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 authentic Kiwi 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 we 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.

Zorb:

Superman dive into a giant inflatable ball and roll down Mt Ngongotaha with ZORB, where the fun will have you laughing uncontrollably.

Choose two rides between the four different ball rolling tracks – the world’s longest zig-zag Sidewinder Track, the smooth ‘n’ fast double Straight Track, MEGA Track -the longest, fastest and steepest track in all the land, and the newest track; Big Air, the latest thrill ride. Ride with water or without water, the choice is yours!

The experience of rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball has been an iconic adventure experience since Andrew and David Akers invented and developed the first ever ZORB site in the world back in 1997 at this very location!

To this day, Rotorua is the ONLY location in New Zealand where you can experience this amazingly fun and bizarre bucket list activity.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Started in 2008 by two pioneering Kiwi mates who had a vision of delivering a mind blowing forest experience using a series of ziplines, swing bridges & elevated platforms, this experience was recently ranked the #1 Nature activity IN THE WORLD by Tripadvisor! Praise doesn’t get much higher than that. Not only is this a beautiful & thrilling forest experience, it is also environmentally responsible & educational.

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!

Overlooking Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown’s alpine scenery, the Colonel’s Homestead at Walter Peak High Country Farm is the perfect place to spend a few hours. Its colonial architecture and sweeping grounds evoke the elegance of a bygone era.

On the menu is salads, vegetables and a variety of succulent meats cooked on the wood-fired BBQ.

From sausages prepared by a local butcher and Cardrona merino lamb to locally sourced beef and pork to expertly crafted salads and sides (not to forget an incredible dessert selection), this is a culinary trip not to be missed.

You will get much closer and see a bigger variety of fish; you are now no longer spectators but rather participants, another predator in the food chain of life.
