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. ”

    Thank You Active Adventures

    Active Adventures' Winter Rimu trip allowed me to experience many things for the first time. Coming from an island of Guam, I was able to see something so different than what I normally see in my backyard. It was my first time to climb up to 1,100 meters. The climb was at Sealy Tarns which overlooked a lake, Mt. Cook village and most especially a fantastic view of Mt. Cook. It was my first time doing an overnight hike as well. We trekked through the scenic landscape towards Mt. Aspiring hut and was rewarded at night with an unspoilt sky of the Southern Hemisphere. It was so clear that we were able to see the Milky Way (another first). We also did a hike up Alex Knobb to get a good view of Franz Glacier and on the way up, we experienced so much elements in one day. We experienced hail and snow (both for the first time) and enjoyed some picturesque views the more higher we climbed.

    From the beginning of the trip, Lynette and Miriam were wonderful at helping to book my trip with Active Adventures. During the trip, Mel and Gary were so hospitable and helped make the trip memorable. Mel and Gary understood that we haven't hiked at this capacity or weren't seasoned hikers, yet they remained with us at the back and encouraged us every step of the way. They helped to show the true essence of New Zealand's natural beauty as well as the friendliness and hospitality of Kiwis. This trip has been amazing and thanks to Active Adventures, New Zealand has become my favorite place in the world.

    Thank you for the memories and for these experiences. <3

    Amazing!

    What a great trip! The scenery exceeded our already-high expectations! And the guides were so good (plus the fact that we would like to see New Zealand in the winter), we are already thinking about our next trip with Active Adventures!

    Rimu - NZ South Island

    Our Rimu trip with Ken and Elder was truly a trip of a lifetime. The two of them were the perfect pair to lead our adventure -kind, warm, funny, and incredibly encouraging (for those of us who weren't quite sure we'd make it up the mountain!) My husband and I were fortunate to have both of our adult boys join us which made for a very memorable experience. New Zealand's South Island offered some of the most breathtaking landscapes we had ever seen. The hiking, kayaking, and biking was challenging and exhilarating. It was hard to say goodbye to the group who became like family. We have stayed in touch with some, and look forward to our next trip with Active.
