New Zealand Walking Tours

New Zealand Walking Tours is now part of the Active family! Same guided walks, amazing scenery, and the finest local food and wine.

Over the decades, we’ve taken the process of creating world-class adventure travel packages, and turned it into somewhat of an art form. We understand that sometimes it’s nice, and in fact necessary, to slow down and enjoy the finer things in life. That means less bus time travelling between destinations, gentler walks that have the flexibility to extend or shorten as you desire, that will immerse you in a life-changing wilderness experience, with a slice of luxury.
