Get Active in New Zealand!

New Zealand is an adventurer’s playground. It’s THE destination to get outdoors, be active, and enjoy the scenery, whether that be by hiking, walking, cycling, kayaking, or horseback riding!

With thousands of kilometres of trails, New Zealand is most definitely a hiker’s paradise. No harmful animals, few people, and pristine countryside. Biking in New Zealand is also starting to gain popularity. With major investment in a country-wide trail network in recent years, there’s a trail to suit everyone, and a world of exploring to do!

New Zealand also has a mild climate and doesn’t experience the extremes in temperatures like we do here in North America, so you can travel there year-round. If you’re interested in hiking, then the summer months are the best time to go, from October to April. On the other hand, New Zealand’s winters are relatively mild, so you can travel there from June to September to do some skiing as well as hiking.

Below we have 3 active itineraries for you to explore – a multisport adventure (8 days); a great walks discovery (5 days), and a walking and gastronomy experience (13 days). These itineraries allow you to see New Zealand through the eyes of locals, in a local way, far from the touristy areas. These trips are planned for small groups (usually around 8-10 people) with fixed departure dates. Contact us for information on the departure dates.
