After twenty years of operating guided hiking trips in New Zealand our universe expanded and we launched Active Earth Adventures.

Active Earth Adventures is the place for you to choose active adventures beyond our New Zealand shores, and also other adventures here in our backyard where you can leave your hiking boots at home.

Our Hiking New Zealand and Active Earth Adventures team have a real passion for active travel, wild places and their conservation. As avid hikers, mountain bikers, canoeists and “give everything a go” people we are able to use our own personal knowledge and experience to provide guidance on which adventures will ensure your travel expectations are exceeded whether they are here in New Zealand or as far away as Antarctica, Peru or Mongolia.
