Exceptional Guides

Our dedicated team of guides are passionate about showing you the natural areas of New Zealand and introducing you to the limitless adventure opportunities. Our guides play a huge part in the overall experience of our trips, which is why we provide two experienced guides on any trip with over 7 people.

Small Groups

We think small is good. Travelling in a group between 4 and 14 people limits the environmental impact, allows you to make life-long friendships, and ensures your travels are fully immersive. Travel like a local, at a relaxed pace and away from the crowds. We couldn't think of a better way to see NZ.

Your Comfort

We stay in carefully selected accommodations that are not only comfortable, but provide local charm and opportunities for genuine cultural interactions. Daily breakfasts are included on all of our tours as well as most lunches and dinners, and a support vehicle is always nearby.

Inclusions & Equipment

The exact inclusions and equipment for each of our adventures is listed once you've found the trip you want. Our trips are generally more inclusive than others in the market place in line with our philosophy of minimising 'extra payments' displayed outside of the main trip price as well as out of pocket expenses once you reach your destination.
