Active Adventures New Zealand Introduction

Active Adventures New Zealand offer fully guided small group active adventure tours to hike, paddle and bike in New Zealand's wildest locations.

We offer a number of different New Zealand adventure tours with plenty of options to suit. You'll push yourself a little, or a lot, hiking with our legendary guides and a few like-minded travellers to experience our beautiful country's natural attractions and little-known gems along the way. We'll minimize the time spent in a vehicle, and spend it on adventure and relaxation.

You'll have two guides, including a chef/co-guide, taking exceptional care of you and you'll sleep well in comfortable lodges in some fantastic locations.

Our New Zealand Adventure Tours

Our New Zealand trips/tours are designed for active people with a reasonable level of fitness and interest in outdoor activities. If you like to walk, run, hike, paddle, cycle or go to the gym, you'll love our New Zealand tours. Two guides per trip means there's plenty of flexibility to go at your own pace.

Our well-trained guides and top-notch equipment ensure that even if you have never been kayaking or backpacking before, you'll really enjoy discovering the outdoors with us in New Zealand. We'll take you into some of the most pristine and secluded areas of New Zealand. We'll share some simply stunning hikes in our favourite national parks and the sea kayaking on our New Zealand adventure tours is suitable for absolute beginners as well as seasoned veterans. If you have a particular interest, such as mountain biking, let us know and we'll make it happen.
