“Ken was always in good spirits. His enthusiasm was contagious and his professional guiding knowledge apparent. He adjusted our hikes according to weather and our ability. He went beyond the call of duty by re-waterproofing our jackets and laughing at our jokes. He calmly helped (saved) me when I was choking on a candy. Thank you, Ken.”
- Sue Harrison (Richland, Michigan, United States), Pristine New Zealand February 2018

“Ken is the best. He has ruined me for any future guided trips. He has boundless, positive energy. His laugh is a beautiful sound. He always makes you feel valued, and he makes you feel that you can achieve anything. Informative, encouraging, and constantly working to make sure you have a good trip. I feel so fortunate to have met him and to have had him as a guide.”
- Tanya Karimi (Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States) Rimu Feb 6 2017

“I never saw Ken without a smile and a good word to everyone he encountered, me included. He was amazing and I feel lucky to have met him, much less to have had a chance to be guided by him through this experience. You are lucky to have him!”
- Claire Forsyth (Midlothian, Virginia, United States), Tui February 2016

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.
