Any average human would think that cage diving, or snorkelling with sharks, would provide enough adrenaline rush for one lifetime.
Thinking outside the box, perhaps with a touch of insanity, has its perks.
A semi-submersible shark experience means you get to roll, dive and even jump like a shark, inside a watercraft reminiscent of Tintin's submarine.
This unprecedented experience takes place in an unbeatable setting. The Remarkables mountain range acts as a stunning backdrop for Lake Wakatipu, an area brimming with superb nature trails and adventure activities.
Although you won't find any sharks here, the aptly named Seabreacher X is more than capable of out-running even the fastest of its cousins...
We firmly believe there are two types of travellers: those who enjoy speeding through a lake on an ultra-modern watercraft, and those who would take a road trip to stare at a tree.
Going on a one-hour drive just to see a tree may not seem the most fruitful endeavor. The above route will take you from Queenstown to Lake Wanaka, where a most unusual sight awaits: a solitary tree rises majestically from within the lake, making for a stunning sight with the Southern Alps as backdrop.
Whether it's shark riding or staring at trees that gets you going, New Zealand's Otago region has got you covered.
