Covid-19 Travel Updates

Your well-being is our top priority

At Adventure South NZ, your safety is our first concern. Our specific protocols and safety analysis procedures, in conjunction with updates provided by our local partners and Government Travel warnings, allow us to carefully assess the stability of our trips throughout New Zealand and plan our operations accordingly. Our experienced staff frequently review all aspects of our adventures to ensure we are providing you with the best possible travel experience. 

We look forward to commencing our next season as scheduled on the 17th August 2020.

Update 8th June 2020:
New Zealand is now in Level 1. We are operating private group tours over winter from the 1st June 2020, with our regular season starting on the 17th August 2020. 

Please direct any questions to our team at [email protected] or call 0800 00 11 66. They will be happy to assist.

Stay safe, be kind and unite against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Private Groups

We've classified private groups as groups of people who know each other prior to the departure date of their trip. This includes friends, family and bubble members. We will not be operating any trips with multiple 'groups' until the start of our scheduled season on the 17th of August 2020.

Talk to us about your ideal dates, an existing Adventure South itinerary or even creating a custom itinerary here.
