New Zealand Adventure Tours

Few places in the world are as beautiful or as epic as New Zealand. Loved by backpackers and holiday makers alike, our scenery is so stunning it will leave you breathless. Friendly locals will help you feel at home; while getting to know the Māori culture will allow you to share some of what makes our country so special, and on your Haka tour you’ll discover that New Zealand really is the home of adventure activities.

Recently awarded Best New Zealand Tour Operator at the 2018 Australian and NZ Adventure Tourism Awards, our core belief is that small groups make for a far better travel experience, one where you're able to truly immerse yourself in experiencing the best of New Zealand and its culture.

From skydiving over mountains so magnificent they’re called “The Remarkables” to walking along active volcanoes, to learning the Māori haka, to discovering ancient rainforests, the diversity of NZ never ceases to amaze. From North to South, we’ll help you tick off some big bucket list items as we take you on the adventure of a lifetime.

What’s included on every tour?

  • Transport in a comfortable 16-seater bus.
  • Passionate and experienced Kiwi guide
  • Accommodation in dormitories with private room upgrades available.
  • Continental Breakfast (GF & Vegan options available)
