Our first dinner alone as a married couple! You'll be contributing to our splurge on amazing food.

We will sail or cruise one of the world's largest freshwater volcanic craters to access Maori rock carvings! These carvings are only accessible by boat and are perhaps the largest of their type in ...
We will hike to an area where steam literally rises from the ground. Local legend says inhaling this steam has great health benefits!

We have the opportunity to visit a Maori village and learn about their culture and customs. We will also get to enjoy a traditional hangi meal and cultural show!
When playwright George Bernard Shaw gazed out over this geothermal landscape, he believed he was at the gates of hell. We will tour the sulpherous terrain and see if we agree!
We will get to explore a unique geothermal area and witness the might of the Pohutu Geyser!
Waiotapu is the area's most colorful thermal park. With hot pools in colors ranging from orange to yellow to green to turquoise, plus a geyser that erupts daily... this is a sight we don't want to ...
The ultimate caving adventure! We will rappel into the cave, climb through rock formations, whiz down a zip line, and cave tube... Lit only by the glow worms above!
After our excellent caving adventure, we will take a much more sedate tour of the famous Glowworm Caves. Who knew looking at larvae could be such fun?? As Winston Churchill says, "We are all worms,...

After riding the chairlift to the top of the mountain, we can race down its slopes in three-wheeled luges! We've been told it's like Mario Kart, minus the part where Rachel inevitably runs into a t...
The tallest bungy swing in the world! We will try to be brave, but will inevitably end up clinging to each other in terror. There are seriously amazing views, if we can open our eyes long enough to...

Give Nate the keys to one of these, and a whole new world of adventure awaits!
