New Zealand, of course, is world-famous for its wonder—it’s no surprise that famous TV shows and movies like The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones choose it year after year for their backdrops. Every year, visitors from all over come to experience everything New Zealand has to offer, from the luscious depths of the bush, to the epic glaciers of Ball Pass. But it’s not always easy to find a way to grasp all of this alone, and lose yourself completely in nature. You’ll need help from locals who know the area better than anyone, and are just as passionate about showing off its beauty.
Each year, FlightNetwork, Australia's leading travel agency, sends its writers all over the world to report back on adventures far and wide that people need to know about—even the ones lesser known. This year, they recognized Hiking New Zealand specifically for our experienced guides and tours, which show visitors a country that “will come alive in a wholly new way.” The sand dunes at Te Paki and the panoramic views from the Bay of Islands received notable mentions, as part of a journey through our countryside that demonstrates every ounce of the sublime that New Zealand is known for.
Again, thank you for FlightNetwork for honoring our work. Based in both the renowned Auckland and North Canterbury, our regular departures leave from November to April, so don’t wait to book your next adventure today. We have a number of unique tours that explore the many different regions of this stunning country, fit for groups of any size. Just remember—it’s a secret.
