If being active, finding hidden local gems that are off the beaten track, or finding your inner child is your kind of adventure, then Howick can provide! We have found the top four best activities for the adventurous to make your stay in Howick that much more memorable!

Jump:  New Zealand’s very first indoor Trampoline Park, Jump offers hundreds of square meters of interlocking trampolines, from Foam Pits, Dodge Ball Courts, and Free Running Area, This spring-loaded urban playground offers something for all ages. Whether you want to relive your childhood dreams or keep the kids busy, jump is for you!

Paradice Ice Rink: Ice-skating is a fun and often hilarious activity everyone can enjoy and is surprisingly easy to pick up (even if you fall down a few times).  Paradice was established in the 70’s and has become Auckland most famous ice skating rink that hosts a series of events including discos! But if getting on the ice isn’t your cup of tea, Paradice also has its own laser tag arena for you to use all the energy on – so there is no excuse to visit this activity hub!

Motorent: How about a self-guided tour on a motorbike? It’s a pretty easy sell, but what makes Motorent so awesome is that when you hire a bike from them, they come with a built-in GPS that the company customizes to feature a route and daily km based on the time you have available plus any specific places you wish to visit. This includes transfers, inter-island ferry tickets (if required), any other excursions, luggage transfer (One Way), a comprehensive itinerary booklet, and a GPS with daily routes pre-loaded.

Extreme Indoor Karts: Maybe your need for speed can be quenched through the age-old activity of go-karting? Whether you want to just arrive and drive, or enter a competitive race – extreme indoor carts are for you!  If you are planning on taking a large group, the facility also has a large outdoor BBQ area so you can recharge in between races!
