Trip of a lifetime...

“While more physically challenging than I was able to train for - I made it through every day of my adventure with joy and wonder. What a beautiful country and a generous welcoming people I found in New Zealand. Our group was great and our guides Holly and Claire were the 'dream team'! So thankful that I was able to see places like Milford Sound, Punakaiki, Nelson Lakes National Park, Kaikoura, and all the places in between. I would never have been able to put together a trip like this on my own and am glad I found 'Active Adventures'. Thanks for helping me check this off my bucket list!”
