Clubs & Groups

Active Adventures in New Zealand kicked off with a custom trip idea back in 1996, so it's fair to say that organising adventures for clubs and groups is our thing. And it's a thing we do extremely well. New Zealand is a destination perfectly set up for a trip with a club or a group no matter what your interests may be. Our team here at Active HQ in Queenstown is made up of hikers, trail runners, skiers, mountain bikers, road cyclists and kayakers. So if you're looking to come to New Zealand with your club or group, we've got a team who will understand what you're interests are and know exactly how to put together a trip that fits.

Over the years we've run club and group trips for everyone from ski clubs to wildlife enthusiast groups. The landscapes of our great little country are unrivalled in terms of variety and accessibility, and with our HQ situated in the heart of New Zealand's adventure capital, Queenstown, you'll not find a team better positioned to organise your next adventure. With all that said, it can be an overwhelming thought – organising a trip away for a group of people – so we take it upon ourselves to take the nitty gritty off your hands, so all you and your group need to worry about is getting on a plane and having the time of your life.

It was an unforgettable trip for all 7 of us friends.

“Custom Rimu - 7 persons from Singapore. It was an unforgettable trip for all 7 of us friends. The views in South Island are stunning, the itinerary is varied and exciting, Lauren & Amanda are fantastic and never cease to surprise us and exceed our expectations. Never a dull moment on the trip. We had great fun! This is one of the best trip we had as a group in the last few years. We are truly impressed with Active NZ - from the organisation of the trip right through to the delivery of the activities and till we leave for home. A truly memorable trip for us to end our year of travelling in 2012. Thank you guys. ”

I wasn't ready for the trip to end!

I don't even know where to begin...so let's start at the beginning. I spent the last year dreaming about going to New Zealand, trying to talk just one friend into going with me, and finally, with some encouragement from family, booking this trip as a first time solo traveler. And let me be clear- that was the best decision I could have made! I enjoyed every single minute of my trip and wouldn't change the experience of traveling solo for anything. From the moment I met Gary and Mel, I knew that I had made the right decision. They were welcoming, to all, from the moment they met us. Right away I knew I had nothing to worry about, and worry I did prior to the start of the trip. I could not have asked for a better group of travel mates; it was as if you had hand-picked who should be on the trip together. They were amazing! The experiences on the trip would not have been nearly as amazing if it wasn't for these awesome people with whom I had the good fortune to travel.
Gary and Mel were kind, patient, and so easy to be around. They answered every question a novice like myself asked, without ever making me feel like an idiot. Gary was witty, kept us going, and a super safe driver! ( I am not a big fan of mountain roads with cliffs on the edge that lead to instant death and not once did I fear for my life.) Mel's cooking...holy smokes was it good; so much so that the pounds I was so sure I would lose on the trip didn't happen. She has even inspired me to try to cook a couple of her dishes this winter. She made it look so easy, even with the varied diets of the group. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I had chatting with both Gary and Mel wherever we were: on the bus, hiking, eating or playing cards. They brought us all together.
Now, for the adventures! Every day was different from the day prior. I saw and experienced so many new things that I can't stop talking about it. I loved the really challenging hikes (Sealy Tarns and Alex Knob) and the slower paced treks through the rain forest and valleys. The night sky at Mt. Aspiring Hut is indescribable! While we were unable to go on the second overnight hike due to weather, Gary and Mel didn't miss a beat. We were so busy and had so much fun, even in the rain, that you would never have known that we were doing almost 3 days of alternate activities. Major kudos to them for this! I could keep going on how much I enjoyed every aspect of my trip. This was the first vacation I have been on where I didn't want it to end and it truly was the trip of a lifetime. I can't wait to book my next trip with Active Adventures!
