Haka Tours Scholarship

A $500 ($NZD) scholarship will be awarded to the highest quality submission on the topic: How can Tourism companies worldwide, utilise the power of social media to attract new customers

Haka Tours is an award winning NZ owned business, providing small group New Zealand Tours and NZ snow tours

99% of customers are from outside of New Zealand and understanding the diverse nature of our markets is key to our success. Since our inception we have generally avoided traditional marketing methods, in favor of an online, direct to consumer approach.

Due to the ongoing success of our scholarship program, Haka Tours is now offering two essay based scholarship per year - this page will be updated with details of the most recent scholarship.

Business Overview

Our New Zealand tours are fully inclusive and include all accommodation and transport. As well as that, guests can customize their experience by adding on activities such as a Bungy Jump or a Sky Dive.

A major point of difference for Haka, is that we specialise in small group tours – numbers are restricted to a maximum of 16 guests on a tour, unlike most of competitors which run tours with up to 40 people.
