Darren Hill

Active Adventures Travel Specialist

Darren at Machu PicchuDarren is originally from a small town on the west coast of Scotland called Ayr, close to where William Wallace was born. Prior to settling in New Zealand, he spent ten years living and travelling in Greece, Thailand, Cambodia, Canada, Australia and South America. He describes himself as an 'adventure travel nut' and regards South America as being right at the top of the list of adventure travel destinations. Darren recently returned to South America to visit the Galapagos Islands where he was blown away by the 'abundant and unique wildlife'. He likened his swimming with turtles to visiting Machu Picchu - both in their own way were 'dramatic, majestic and moving'.

Darren has travelled the world, but everyone still has something on their bucket list and for him that something is space travel. Watch this space...

Next time you speak to Darren, ask him about his golf handicap. His aim is to get down to single figures. He's at 11 right now so time will tell.

Why travel with Active Adventures?

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.
