Daniella Ferrier

New Zealand Guide

Daniella, or 'Dani' as she prefers to be called, was born in Thailand to Kiwi parents and lived in Asia until she was 12, before moving back to New Zealand. Like many of our guides down here, she loves mountain biking and snowboarding. As you'll soon find out if you're lucky enough to be on tour with Dani, she's full of beans and loves to enjoy every moment in life - "eating good food and getting out there and experiencing nature and different cultures is what I am all about."

She's been traveling and working seasons around the world for the last few years, so has plenty of great stories to tell.

Best decision ever? Dani was previously a restaurant manager, but happily for us, she couldn't resist the calling for the outdoors and decided to dedicate her life to it! Nice one! 

"Eating good food and getting out there and experiencing nature and different cultures is what i am all about."

Dani Ferrier


  • “Dani was excellent, and her high energy was infectious, even when everybody else was beat due to the early wake-ups or hard days of activity.”
    Chris Kaynor (Camarillo, California, United States), December 2016
  • “Dani is an amazing guide - her energy and enthusiasm are boundless and she sees the best in every situation. She made time with each of us individually, got us playing games to get out of our shells, had amazing stories to tell, and clearly loves the South Island. She was a joy to share the time with, and I was always confident in her knowledge and skills to handle anything.”
    Mary Christensen (Edmonds, Washington, United States), November 2016
