New Zealand is known for beautiful scenic landscapes, innovation, and a hard-yakka approach to sports and adventure. It’s little surprise, then, that all three of those famously Kiwi qualities have been combined in a world-first adventure experience.

5X1NZ is unlike any other sporting or adventure experience, packing five adrenaline-filled thrills into just one day in, around and over Queenstown.

Released on September 23 in a global partnership between Tourism New Zealand and STA Travel, 5X1NZ is an only-in-New-Zealand experience and thrill-junkie’s dream.

  • skydive
  • snowboard
  • mountain bike
  • bungy
  • jetboat

Risk-taking is a way of life for Kiwi thrill-seeker and dare devil Chuck Berry - a professional RedBull-sponsored athlete and stuntman who loves nothing better than an adrenalin-defying challenge. Of completing 5X1NZ, Berry said:

As far as I know, no one else has ever done it and now anyone that’s mad enough can give it a go. I couldn’t take the smile off my face for days afterwards.”

Think you can handle the jandal, as the locals say? The 5X1NZ can be booked exclusively through STA Travel.
