What is a Hiking Tour?


Hiking Tours offer an excellent way to see large portions of New Zealand and hike in a number of National Parks. A guide enhances your understanding of the natural beauty and history that surrounds you on your journey and they help you make the most out of every moment on your New Zealand adventure.

Your journey is enriched by all the little extras that make for a hassle-free holiday. Your dining needs are all planned and well catered for as well as having opportunities to sample local cuisine at your leisure on some nights.

Relax at the end of each day at well-appointed accommodation and wake up refreshed knowing your day’s adventure is prepared and planned for by your guide(s). Accommodation is generally hotels, motels and lodges and many hiking tours offer ensuites each night with the option to have a single room.

If you enjoy walking in the wilderness, meeting likeminded people and appreciate your creature comforts then a Hiking Tour is the right choice for you.


Read what previous hikers thought about their Hiking Tour


“My husband and I spent 2 weeks in NZ and took the Uncut Tour. We saw amazing scenery that we never would have seen had we not used a guide. Our guides were fun, organized and knowledgeable. We had about 10 people in our group from various countries and of various ages. Everyone got along and that added to the exceptional experience. The highlights of the trip were the breathtaking scenery and the hikes (sometimes challenging). The accommodations, food, travel and before trip communication were all top notch. I highly recommend Hiking New Zealand!” Jane W, March 2018, Trip Advisor


 "Excellent in every way. Luxury accommodation, meals and service with spectacular itinerary and first class guides (two per minibus). Challenging walks and exciting excursions without white knuckle experiences, and there is always an easier option if required. Every day is filled with activities or travelling and suites solos, families and groups of moderate or better walking abilities.

Worth every penny, enjoyed every minute." – Wander739990, February 2018, Trip Advisor
