Health & Wellness

Stay Healthy and Pamper Yourself
To enjoy your Vantage Adventure to its fullest, you’ll want to stay fit throughout your trip. That’s why we’ve built in many opportunities for you to keep active while you immerse yourself in the rich cultures of Australia and New Zealand. Plus, we always offer alternatives at mealtimes to suit your preference, whether vegetarian, diabetic, or any other type of diet so long as we receive your requests at the time of booking.

Have Fun and Stay Fit!
On this journey, you'll have the opportunity to swim and snorkel in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. We also offer several invigorating optional activities at the reef, including scuba diving and a walk along the ocean floor. While in Sydney, you may choose to walk atop the Sydney Harbor Bridge for spectacular views of the city skyline and harbor. If you like, you may choose to discover the nightlife in Cairns, Queenstown, and Sydney during your tour by exploring local bars. In Queenstown, the adventure capital of New Zealand, there are options nearby for jet boating and bungee jumping in your free time. There are also opportunities for walking and trekking, or even a quick visit to the nearby ski resorts.

Go Biking Down Under
The great weather and scenery make biking a wonderful way to experience Australia and New Zealand. Your Adventure Leaders suggest three locations where you can go for a spin during your free time. As you would expect in the adventure capital of Queenstown, there are cycling options for riders of all levels – whether you are up for heli-biking or just an easy pedal along Lake Wakatipu. The popular Queenstown Trail links a series of paths from Queenstown Bay to the historic gold-mining town of Arrowtown to the Gibbston wine region. Sydney offers flat, dedicated paths in its stunning Centennial Park. Located in the heart of the city, it’s dotted with facilities for picnics, entertainment, and sports. The beautiful Bay Run stretches from Birkenhead Point to Rozelle. You can even cycle over two of Sydney’s most recognizable landmarks, the ANZAC and Harbor bridges. In Cairns, the lovely Walking and Cycling Circuit takes in the Esplanade Lagoon, Botanic Gardens, and mangrove boardwalks. Let your Adventure Leader point you in the right direction during your New Zealand and Australian vacation.
