Fiona Davies

Active Adventures Travel Specialist

Born right up in the north of New Zealand in a town called Whangarei, Fiona or ‘Fe’ as her friends call her, has come to know New Zealand very well, having spent time also living in Auckland, Cromwell, Palmerston North and Queenstown. With a father from east Africa, a mother from Scotland and family scattered in most continents, Fe was bitten with the travel bug from a young age, flying over to visit family and even trekking the Himalayas when she was 16.

After finishing a degree in Zoology, Fe hasn’t had a ‘normal’ job since! From being a penguin keeper and shark handler in New Zealand to an otter trainer while living in the UK, and a turtle researcher in Greece, her passion for animals led to a passion for travel and the outdoors. More recently she has spent 4 years as a hiking guide on the Milford and Routeburn Tracks where her inner ‘bird nerd’ was unleashed when spotting native birds such as the cheeky alpine Kea and endangered blue ducks.

In the weekends you can find Fe wandering off into the Southern Alps for a hike where she enjoys walking all day almost as much as tasting the areas great wines in a backcountry hut in the evening.

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.
