6. Heli-raft Down Under
LOCATION: QUEENSTOWN, NEW ZEALAND
PRICE: FROM $229
AIRPORT: QUEENSTOWN (ZQN)
WHY: Why drive to the raft put-in when you can fly? Hop in a helicopter and shoot up the Shotover River canyon, where you’ll see Class 5 rapids like After Shock, Sharks Fin, Toilet, and Jaws. Then, well aware of the watery adversary you face, jump into a raft and hurtle down the river for an aquatic adrenaline rush. The whole shebang takes about 4½ hours, but it’ll probably feel much faster. Remember to pack a swimsuit.
