Bungy together! – New Zealand

Bungy together! – New Zealand

One, two, three: “I dooooooo...!”

One, two, three: "I dooooooo...!" There's no better way to bond than by being mutually scared witless, so cement your relationship by leaping into a precipitous river gorge together, clinging on for dear life with just a length of elastic tied to your shackled ankles.

Queenstown, in New Zealand's South Island, is the spiritual home of bungy, and the nearby 43m Kawarau Bridge site is the only one around town to offer tandem jumps. The only proviso (aside from nerves of steel) is that your weight difference mustn't exceed 30kg; you can jump in your wedding garb, or completely naked, if you like.

Any honeymoon in NZ is memorable enough, but this is the moment you will never, ever forget. Spend no less than three weeks (ideally more) driving or campervanning around the country, flying into Auckland, exploring North Island, then ferrying over to South Island, scheduling your bungy for near the end of the trip. A month of soaking up New Zealand's high-octane vibe - perhaps also diving, kayaking and jetboating together - will help gird your loins for this ultimate lovers' leap.

Need to know: AJ Hackett (www.ajhackett.com) runs a range of bungy sites worldwide, including the Kawarau Bridge; you can also do tandem jumps at its rainforest-set tower in Cairns (Australia).
