How we became a leading active adventure specialist in NZ

In 1992, Adventure South NZ launched its first ever 4 day, guided mountain biking trip through the Rainbow Valley with one big red bus, a few bikes and some fiery determination. The bikes were loaded on top of the bus with a big green trunk to help hold all of the gear, with tents as our accommodation.


25 years later, we may have a few more buses than we did back in 1992, and we've moved on from tents, but our passion for the outdoors remains just as strong.


Adventure South NZ now boasts over 40 guided trips, a number that continues to grow. We now offer the largest range of cycling trips in New Zealand including NZ Cycle TrailsNZ Road Cycling and NZ Mountain Biking trips, as well as a unique and diverse range of NZ Hiking trips across the North and South Island. From the planning stages to the adventure itself, we consider every moment of our tours to create extraordinary experiences for active traveller's like you.


In the words of one Adventure South NZ traveller from Canada:


"I have been on more than 20 guided bike trips over the past 30 years and my Adventure South trip is ranked #1".
