From the Okarito Lagoon on the West Coast; with its surrounding wetlands and wild beaches. To the sky-scraping peaks, glaciers and snow fields of Aoraki Mount Cook. Gazing at the crimson-coloured sky, snuggled into your rustic farm cottage nuzzled away amongst New Zealand’s largest Mountains. Frolicking with the seals at Kaikoura, taking in the fresh crisp air of New Zealand’s South Island… Well, all this and more is what you’ll get to see on our Ultimate South Island Adventure ‘Rimu’ trip. Phrases such as “bucket list”, “knock your socks off”, “wanderlust”, “Once in a lifetime”, come to mind. But honestly, we’re not being biased, this is definitely an adventure travel trip that you’ll need to experience at least once in your lifetime.
To celebrate 20 years of the signature ‘Rimu’ trip, we thought we’d celebrate with 20 guest photos!

“I am struggling to find the words to describe this trip. Awesome, spectacular, phenomenal don’t do it justice. From our very first contact with Active through the last day of our journey it was the most enjoyable travel experience we have ever had by a long shot! The guides, Andrew and Sally were superb. Their warmth, love of life and thirst for adventure, sense of humour, knowledge of and pride in their country were palpable. They did all of the work and made it look effortless. The activities were so well organized and exciting. The natural beauty of NZ is absolutely breath-taking and experiencing it with Andrew and Sally made it that much better. Seemed like each day was more beautiful, fun, exciting than the day before. The food, the various accommodations, the activities, were just lovely. We wanted an Active vacation and this trip pushed us to our fitness limits! We have raved about Active Adventures and the Rimu trip in particular with all of our family and friends and really anybody who will listen!”
