New Zealand Family Tours

We've been running carefully crafted family adventures for over a decade now (with a few updates along the way of course!). Our New Zealand 'Kea' trip is packed with activities like jet boating, hiking, rafting and kayaking, keeping everyone well entertained from day one. You won't have to worry about where to stay, what to eat, navigating the mountain roads or deciding what to do each day - we'll take care of it all for you.

The accommodation we use is perfect for families and the meals are designed for all ages to enjoy. Our guides are great with kids and love making sure young people and the rest of the family all have an incredible experience - they'll sweat the small stuff, so you can focus on family time without the headaches! We welcome children and teenagers of all ages and in fact, families often choose to join our other adventures too, so anything's possible!

    Kea

    Let us take care of every detail so that you and your family can enjoy exploring New Zealand’s iconic places on a fun outdoorsy adventure. The ‘Kea’ is the perfect opportunity for everyone in the family to try some new activities together while our guides encourage, entertain, serve up delicious meals and ensure you make the most of your precious vacation time. You’ll be amazed how much everyone learns along the way and our guides will have you laughing as much as the kids! For a great way to see the North Island too, combine this trip with our 11-day 'Kauri' (5-day 'Kauri' options available).

    Activity level: This trip has been designed to be fun and gently challenging for the young, and the young at heart. The pace is flexible and most hikes range between two and four hours to complete. 

A Very Kea Christmas and New Year

“Our family of five (16G, 14G and 9B) thoroughly enjoyed our trek through NZ's South Island on the Kea celebrating both Christmas and New Year. Lauren and Mel were fantastic and knowledgeable guides each with a sense of humor. Mel was a great cook, and we never went hungry. The hiking, rafting, jet boating and the activities were great even if the weather did not always cooperate. The long weekend in Queenstown was great to explore, rest and be with the family finishing with bungy jumping in the rain on the bridge where it was invented. It was a very memorable vacation and the pre-planned itinerary made for a very relaxing vacation. It would have been a much different vacation if we had had to drive, cook and schedule all the activities. Would definitely do another trip like this again!”

HEAPS of fun and HEAPS of memories for a lifetime!

“To summarize in a small paragraph cannot do justice to the amount of joy this trip brought to our family! We travel a lot, all over the world, and like to pretty much do it on our own, not afraid to be adventuresome! We have two college age boys that have been raised doing outdoorsy things all their lives. Soooo when I signed on for a two week, group guided trip, I sort of, kind of held my breath! Please, please let this not be a mistake, I repeated to myself. Kate and Natalie Active Adventure guides extraordinaire!!! The places we went, the adventures we experienced, the meals we shared, the friendships we found, the landscape we awed over, the seascapes we coveted, the laughs we had, the conquest of Angelus Circuit we cheered for and the memories etched in our hearts that will last a lifetime says it all. Our Rimu trip was the greatest trip of all!”
