New Zealand Luxury Adventure Tours

 

You only live once, and New Zealand isn't exactly right on the doorstep in terms of its geographical location – so if you're looking to treat yourself to a luxury adventure tour of New Zealand then you've found an outfitter who can roll out the red carpet in every way. The way we see it – a luxury trip comes down to five main ingredients: incredible guides, comfortable transportation in all its forms (did we mention we love helicopters?), first class cuisine, unforgettable & exclusive experiences and exquisite accommodation. We understand the importance of getting all these things right, and with years of experience putting together luxurious adventures, we'll make no exception in getting your trip just right.

Fly in to a remote southern alps wilderness farm station lodge, eat freshly caught barbecued crayfish on a remote West Coast beach, sample Central Otago Pinot Noir on an exclusive private wine tour near Queenstown or sail on a private boat charter in New Zealand's "winterless north". No matter what you're interested in - we'll not only make it happen, we'll make sure the five ingredients add up to something absolutely unforgettable.

    Awesome Tui Trip!

    My husband and I traveled to New Zealand for a late honeymoon and our adventure started with the Tui Trip which couldn't have been better! Between the amazing places we visited along the South Island from our unbelievable guides who quickly became friends, the trip definitely exceeded our expectations! We quickly learned how kiwis truly cherish and appreciate what their beautiful country has to offer and are so thankful to have had such a wonderful experience. New Zealand will always hold a special place in our hearts, along with our memories of hiking, biking, cheers-ing, and chatting with new friends. Thank you Koru and Liana, for making our trip so unforgettable!

    Memorable South Island NZ

    This is one active trip with never a dull moment. We experienced real rain forest rain and snow capped mountains from afar and close up and personal. The contagious energy of the guides created a fun and physically challenging adventure.

    Amazing Trip

    This trip was amazing - the hikes took us to beautiful vistas, the guides were knowledgeable and fun, and the food was never in short supply ("Food is Fuel!" as one of our guides kept restating).

    Koru and Kim were great guides throughout and everyone had so much fun! I was traveling solo but 2 of the other 4 on my trip were as well, so nobody was ever left out! Having such a small group made the activities much easier to enjoy.

    The hikes, like I mentioned, were truly unbelievable, though somewhat more difficult than I expected. Everything was talked as 'full-on' or by time, but know that NZ hikes are up mountains then back down, so work on hills more than distance before you go! Even some of the small walks we did (Blue Pools, only 5 minutes from the road & the Chasm, 10 minutes from the road) were breathtaking. Kayaking the Milford Sound was another once in a lifetime experience we got to have on this trip.

    The only thing I would have liked (and got jokingly by the end of the trip) were straight communication prior to the hikes about how long they were updates mid-hike about how much longer/further. There was one day with miscommunications leading me to think the hike would be another 3+ hours uphill (nearly inducing panic) but was really only 30 more minutes.

    Overall, I really loved this trip!

    Amazing Adventure!

    Absolutely the BEST way to experience all the amazing things that New Zealand has to offer! This trip lived up to it's name and truly was an Active Adventure - we hiked, biked and kayaked across the gorgeous South Island.
    Skip the massive tour buses and join Active Adventures to go beyond the major tourist routes!
