My daughter (22) and I (53) are spending an amazing week here just for the adventure stuff.
A lot of the accomodation that is about a 10 minute walk from town is up huge hills. The walk into town is fine but the walk home (great to justify all the food we had eaten) but is a pretty big effort. High heels would be a killer.
$15 coctail tea pots at ' The world bar' A must for the Under 30's - I was waaay too old to be there but still had fun
We booked parasailing which has been cancelled 3 times due to the wind !!!!!!!
Went up the gondola which is an easy walk from town. Everyone should try the luge - that is so much fun - go at lease twice as you are made to start on the easy one if you haven't done it before but the extreme one is also easy to handle. On the way down stop at the little caravan called Balaton crepes. These are served on a paper plate and cost about $8.00 but definately worth eating- they have savoury and sweet.
Went skydiving with NZone - excellent time but a lot of sitting around as the weather was a bit tricky and flights were actually cancelled the day before we went. Dinner at Flame, Bar & Grill. Got a really good write up but we didn't think the food was fantastic and not really worth the money. Steak about $30. then had to pay $1.50 for pepper sauce.
Did the combo of jetboat, helicopter & white water rafting. Fantastic day - the whole lot was just brilliant. The guides are friendly and helpful everywher you go. So many nationalities. We booked everything at 'the station' in the middle of town - meeting place for many of the activities. ASB Bank is assocciated with commonwealth so no o'seas transfer charges on withdrawals - easier than paying credit card charges
Today we are at the Nevis bunji waiting for the tour bus to take us back. Nevis Bunji 134 mtrs. -That is amazing and really not scary. The adrenaline rush afterwards is to die for!!! Also did the Nevis arc. The tallest swing in the world - a barrel of fun - if you are going here spend the xtra and do them both.
