Our Active New Zealand vacations and hiking trips are made whole by our incredible team of devoted Guides.
Their knowledge, personality and experience will be the icing on the cake of your trip. They are wonderful hosts, well-versed in the culture, flora, fauna and history of their countries, and will ensure you learn a great deal about the destination you’re experiencing. They’re trained in outdoor first aid, passionate about providing you with an incredible experience, and will keep you well fed, housed, watered and run a safe and well managed trip. They’ll make sure everything is running smoothly behind the scenes to ensure you can relax and enjoy your trip of a lifetime.
Imagine a cross between Bear Grylls, David Attenborough and a Four Seasons concierge and you'll get an idea of what these guys are like! Read about a selection of our Guides here:
Above all, we aim to be amazing hosts. We're proud of our kiwi roots, and our professional, warm and relaxed style of running trips around the world is unforgettable.
We're VERY picky about who we select to work in our team, and we have people from all over the world lining up to guide our trips. So we get to hire the absolute BEST in the business.
As soon as you get off the plane, we've got all the details of your vacation covered – top notch meals, comfortable transport & accommodation, amazing guides and INCREDIBLE service.
Whether you’re new to adventure travel, or you’ve never travelled in a group before, you’ll find yourself arriving home positively different from when you left.
With our small groups (no more than 14), you'll get to know our team, your fellow travellers, and have the flexibility and freedom to do as much (or as little!) as you like.
It's all about getting there under your own steam – on foot, in a sea kayak, or by bike. What better way is there to experience mind blowing scenery? If it's your first time, no worries – our expert guides have got you covered.
