PRESS RELEASE - Active Adventures and Austin Adventures unite to create a global adventure company

 

QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand -- United by a powerful belief in the ability of travel to create inspiring, life-changing moments, Active Adventures (HQ in Queenstown, New Zealand) and Austin Adventures (HQ in Montana, USA) have merged to create a world of opportunities for global travellers. 

The merger will enable more adventure travellers to benefit from a wider range of global destinations and experiences. Both brands specialise in small group adventure trips, off the beaten path, with a personal touch. 

“Travel today is not just about choosing a destination. Now more than ever, it’s about how we travel,” says Wendy van Lieshout, CEO of the new merger. 

“It’s about precious time together - creating lifetime memories, being inspired and connecting with the people and environment around us. It’s about feeling you can trust the company you are on that journey with – that all the little details will be taken care of to create the best experience possible.”  

“To expand our offerings to our loyal customers, it was critical we find a like-minded brand to join forces with. Just like us, Austin Adventures was borne out of a deep passion for sharing authentic, curated and inspirational adventure experiences with their guests.” 

What does the merger mean for travellers? More choice of destinations, dates and trip styles: 

Each brand has its own specialities and experiences to create an expanded collection of adventure opportunities across the globe. Now, Austin Adventures’ tours will be available for booking on Active Adventures’ website, adding a huge range of adventures in the USA, Canada and Central America, including specific family departures.  And Active Adventures’ unique hiking, biking, and kayaking experiences in New Zealand, South America, Europe, the Himalayas, and Africa will be available via the Austin Adventures’ website.  

According to Dan Austin, founder of Austin Adventures, the homework has been done to make sure the match was a natural fit and would create new opportunities for each other’s loyal guests. “We were created in different countries, yet our companies have very similar stories. Each business is like a family – now we’ve just created one bigger family!” 

Shared features: 

The two brands have come together as one global team across New Zealand and the USA, with operational bases around the globe.  

“We share the same commitment to putting our guests at the heart of everything we do.  We look forward to sharing many more special experiences with our guests and partners,” says Ms van Lieshout.

At her previous role to joining Active, she was lucky enough to ski in the Swiss Alps, hike up Machu Picchu and kayak around in the Fiji islands (just to name a few!). Being able to explore, meet different people and find the uniqueness that each part of the world has to offer is a dream!

Later, he created Adventures Plus, which in 2000 officially became Austin Adventures.
