Would You Ride the Largest Swing in the World?

Whether it be kayaking the Upper Shotover River with Blake Hannah, horse riding into etherial Lord of the Rings country with Sam de Reeper, or biking over the North Island’s spectacular suspension bridges with Dale Lopez or Steve Meeres, you adventurous folk are guaranteed a wild and wonderful tour of New Zealand, an island so remote it was one of the last places to be settled by humans. New Zealand-based tour guides take neither their country’s distinctive biodiversity – it’s home to an amazing spectrum of animal, fungal, and plant life – nor it’s varied topography – for such a little island, she sports some epic tooth-like mountain peaks – for granted, setting up guided trips to share the beautiful land they’re fortunate enough to call home.

But while a vast number of New Zealand’s tour guides run trips of the adventure variety, it takes a special someone to undertake something as extreme as going on a swing that has a 70-meter (230-foot) free-fall and 300-meter (985-foot) arc. Oof, now that’s taking sightseeing to a whole new level.

New Zealand may be small in size, but she knows how to pack a punch, and she’s home to the largest swing…in the world!

Cheers to that, Kiwis.
