Small Group Adventures
If you are a solo traveler or a couple but like the idea of joining a small group of like-minded people on a big Adventure, those active tours are made for you!
Fully guided, fully supported, and all-inclusive, those small group tours will show you the true essence of New Zealand’s famous wilderness while providing all you need: land transport, food and accommodation (from basic wilderness camps and backcountry huts to standard hotels and Lodges). The most adventurous will skip the tourist trails and explore the real backcountry as you bike and hike through the mountains, National Parks and to the very heart of the wild and mysterious landscapes.
All the tours are run by responsible companies who have been awarded a Qualmark Gold Sustainable Tourism award.
Group never exceed 14 people. Tours departs on set dates so check with us for the next available departure!
You can also combine these tours with pre and post nights to see more of the country!
