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.

Perfect Trip for anyone who loves Nature!

“If you enjoy being outdoors and like to challenge yourself this trip is for you. I wasn't an avid hiker before signing up for the Rimu trip but after reading the itinerary I knew I couldn't pass up this amazing opportunity. You never know what you are capable of until you try and that is how I feel after climbing up to the Angelus Hut and hiking to Mueller ridge. I had never climbed a mountain before (since there are no mountains where I live) but the views are more than worth the climb.
This trip is the best way to see all that the South Island has to offer, it is the perfect balance between adventure, relaxation, self-exploration, and cultural immersion. Anyone can go to New Zealand and rent a car and go hiking, biking, and Kayaking; however, they will miss out on the best parts of traveling to a new place and that is the knowledge and culture that only someone who lives there would know. The guides (Tory and Vanessa) were awesome! Tory is an amazing cook, and Ness was great at making jokes and keeping the atmosphere cheery during the longer drives. I loved listening to the guides tell us about the Maori people and the local legends or folklore. I actually thought Ness was lying to me when she would tell me that the views get better after being left speechless by the scenery, but every day was better than the previous!
I have to mention the FOOD!!! The food alone is enough for me to sign up for this trip again. When I travel I don’t always know what the local food is or would be but with this trip the guides cook you all sorts of local food and all the food is fresh and delicious. If you don’t like something they will make sure to accommodate you.
Ness and Tory made you feel like this was a trip among friends and family, not strangers. I will come back to New Zealand again!”
