Why Active Adventures New Zealand

What makes our New Zealand adventures so special?

We believe that scenery needs to be experienced, not seen through a bus window. So we'll take you to our mountains, rainforests, lagoons, fiords and volcanoes - and we'll walk, cycle and paddle through them. You don't have to be an athlete to come on one of our trips, but you need to be interested in experiencing New Zealand's incredible scenery in an active manner!

Why Travel With Active New Zealand

We take everyday people, who may or may not have a great deal of experience in the outdoors, to the most scenic and rewarding parts of New Zealand. Clients on a typical trip will have a range of experience, from folks who have spent a couple of days in the backcountry in their lives, to those who spend most weekends in the hills.

We have happy clients all over the world who have taken our trips and who'd love to tell you all about it! For referrals, please call or email us and we'd be happy to put you in touch with some of our previous clients. And you can read heaps of reviews throughout our site as well. 
Why Travel With Active New Zealand

We are a small company, so we have the focus and flexibility to work with you personally. We offer a variety of trips and every trip can be customised to suit. One of the biggest appeals of travelling with us is that we make sure you have lots of flexibility and plenty of options everywhere you go. We do some activities as a group, but generally there are many opportunities for you to head out and explore on your own as well. If you have a particular interest, please let us know. You'll be surprised how well we can arrange things to suit your interests. We emphasise variety and make sure you will experience a wide range of activities and that you see as much of New Zealand as possible, without rushing. We try to minimise time on the road - the rest of the time we are enjoying all the New Zealand backcountry has to offer.

Most important of all, our emphasis is on exceeding your expectations. We've worked hard to get where we are, and we intend to keep providing the most amazing New Zealand vacation packages! It's that simple.

Whatever the dream, if its New Zealand, find a way!!

“Where do I even start?!?!? NZ has been #1 on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. It wasn't until I realized I couldn't wait forever for that perfect time, to have X amount of money saved, to have a companion to go with me...that I decided to JUST GO ALREADY! And I suggest you do the same! Don't wait another moment. I went alone but found the most wonderful companions I could have ever hoped for! Even got a great roommate. The guides, Claire and Jess were PHENOMENAL! I started crying off and on a few days before the end of the trip because I became that attached to them and knew I would never see them again. Leaving at the airport, I couldn't even speak I was so upset and saying goodbye. So wonderful and beyond knowledgeable! I miss Jess' cooking and Claire's coffee already and I just got back yesterday!!! But seriously folks, the Manuka was beyond what expectations I could have ever dreamed. Yes it was indeed physical, so be ready for that; but there were some flatter, easier options for those that chose to not exert so much energy. There were a couple of times I wanted to just quit, but Claire and/or Jess kept me going saying it would be worth it (for the view AND the accomplishment) and MAN WERE THEY RIGHT!!!

The food, the company, the knowledge, the laughs, the comradery, the views, the EXPERIENCES....all of it was TOP NOTCH! I have my memories that will last a lifetime; best money I have EVER spent.

Don't wait! GO! I plan to go back in a couple of years to do the entire Milford Track. That's my only regret is that I didn't spend the extra to do that. But that's on me, not AA!”
