This adventure was action packed from the get go. Food was amazing! Hikes, bike, and kayak excursions were beautiful and the people we traveled with were the best. Guides were over the top amazing. They worked their tails off for us.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say. This is exactly what we were hoping for. New Zealand is spectacular with wonderful sights and sounds at every turn, friendly people and outstanding pies. The trip was very well planned with outstanding accommodations in wonderful settings, great back up plans for weather related considerations and worry and hassle free days of just enjoying this corner of paradise. The guides were all super friendly, outgoing, helpful and extremely considerate!

When I started planning my New Zealand adventure vacation, more than anything, I wanted to be sure it included the right mix of activity and relaxation. The Kiwi trip was spot on for me!
I loved the small group size and the variety of daily adventures that were included. We covered a lot of New Zealand territory but our great guides, Lauren and Kaleb, made our travels truly awesome by keeping us informed, safe, and on-time. They were congenial, knowledgeable, organized and great fun!

We have travelled to NZ a few times in the past, but never before have we experienced it like this. Active Adventures showed us the REAL NZ as only 'locals' know it and with non stop adventure! The ease and flexibility of the Tour, GREAT guides, fantastic food, jaw dropping scenery and 'getting out there' challenging yourself, together makes this a VERY special experience. Highly recommended coming from somebody in the tourism industry.

I have been to NZ a few times but on this trip I learned and saw many new things ! The birds, plants, geography, geology, history and Maori mythology all fascinated me. The west coast with its lush rain forests were all new to me, just beautiful. The activities and walks were awesome. Everything was very well planned and organised.

This was a great week long trip with all the South Island highlights. There’s enough time to create your own side adventures but Active has everything covered for you if you don’t want to do any extra planning on your own. We have used other tour companies in other countries and this was one of the top experiences for us.

From Active Adventures New Zealand

We challenge you to find a country that packs more untouched, dramatic and diverse scenery into a smaller space than New Zealand. The light here is different somehow, making the fiords, glaciers, rainforest, volcanoes, beech forests and rugged coastlines crisper, brighter and a bit more intense than you'd ever expect.

You'll find yourself surrounded by some of the best scenery on the planet with few signs of civilisation and no one else around. As an independent nation that lies across the Tasman Sea from Australia, New Zealand is home to only four and a half million people. About a third of them reside in Auckland city and the rest are spread out around two main islands, which together are about half the size of California, leaving vast tracts nearly uninhabited. It's no wonder a lot of visitors find it hard to leave!
