Awesome Winter Rimu!

“We had an amazing adventure on our Winter Rimu trip in July and will definitely be back to New Zealand. Our guides were Lauren and Jax and they were fabulous every single day. We were excited to see what each day would bring and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip. Every day brought a new adventure, either hiking somewhere incredible, or kayaking, or driving through scenery that blew your socks off. Lauren and Jax also adapted the trip when weather caused issues, or to make sure we saw as much as possible - more than the brochure promised! We loved our trip and would do it again in a heartbeat.”
