New Zealand Guide
Evelyn is from Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, set amongst volcanic islands and a multitude of harbours - fittingly known as the 'City of Sails'. She loves to cook, hike and do yoga and before joining the guiding team here at Active, Evelyn was studying Events Management and Marketing. She also has a Diploma in Paramedicine!

"Backpacking around the world for a year!"
"We were a bit hesitant knowing that we would be the only family on this trip, since part of the draw was interacting with other families with kids while we adventure, but our awesome guides Ash and Eve really came through and made sure both kids and adults had a wonderful time through the varied terrain of the South Island. They were particularly good at coaxing our least willing hiker (the 6 year old) and giving us options to split up into individual or paired interests. The level and variety of activity was perfect for our family! Thanks again, we really did have the best time and hope to come back for another Active adventure someday..."Alison Davis and Family (Oregon, USA) December 2017
"The Tue trip was everything I hoped for and much much more. New Zealand is the most beautiful place on earth and our guides Katie and Eve made the journey fun, safe, comfortable and easy! This is the only trip of this kind I have taken where I felt truly refreshed when I arrived back at my home. How Active consistently finds guides of this calibre and character is a mystery to me. Both of my trips with Active have been outstanding!"Michael Orzen (Oregon, USA) November 2017
