New Zealand Hiking Tours


Thinking about a guided hiking tour in New Zealand? Hiking is where it all began for Active Adventures New Zealand. We're all Kiwi's here at Active HQ, and we're based in Queenstown, New Zealand. We grew up hiking in our local national parks, so we know them like the backs of our hands. We know the best time to avoid the crowds on the more famous hiking trails, and we love to share New Zealand's hidden gems with people like you - those trails that don't make it onto the list of New Zealand's Great Walks, but they're equally as stunning, and you can hike for days at a time without seeing another hiker. So if you’re even remotely interested in the outdoors, joining the local experts for a New Zealand hiking tour will be an adventure you’ll never forget.

New Zealand Hiking Tours

Hiking plays a part in all of our trips here in New Zealand, and we’ve carefully selected the most amazing hiking trails out of the thousands that criss-cross the country, to give you the best hiking trip imaginable. Hiking in New Zealand is an incredible experience and whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a beginner, we’ll make sure you get the best out of your hiking vacation.

Active Adventures hiking tours are not easy tourist walks, nor are they arduous treks into the mountains. Our hiking tours are designed to get you into the most wild, remote and beautiful parts of our pure wilderness, for the New Zealand hiking trip of a lifetime. You don’t need to be an experienced hiker to enjoy our trips, although if you are you won’t be bored. All you need is moderate fitness and a keen interest in the outdoors!
