When you’re not in class, you can spend your days zip lining across Adrenalin Forest, hiking Roy’s Peak and relaxing by a campfire in Rimutaka Park!

"During the entirety of my study abroad, there are four moments that I consider most memorable and life changing. Hiking up Roy’s Peak sits at number two on that list. We climbed 5,177 feet in five miles. It’s safe to say that it was 99% uphill! I am so thankful that my friend Jessi stayed with me the whole way. She could see the pain in my eyes and encouraged me to focus on one foot at a time. We began hiking in snow halfway up the mountain. Once I finally looked up from staring at my shuffling feet, my heart stopped. All of New Zealand is incredibly beautiful, but nothing beats the views from Roy’s Peak. Wanaka looked exactly what utopia would look like. Happiness, peacefulness and pure love flooded my heart. Sitting on top of Roy’s Peak with lifelong friends was an experience I won\’t forget." || Photo by #ISEPStudyAbroad student @madeleine.bong from @ducpenguins, who studied abroad at @masseyuni in #NewZealand. #royspeak #newzealand #newzealandnatural #travelstoke #studentnomad #passionpassport #collegetourist #studyabroad #travel
