Kiwi-style hiking trips get far away from the maddening crowds and into the real New Zealand. Most trips mix multi-day hikes (in different National Parks) with vehicle-based touring. These tours are rugged and the facilities can be basic at times: camp, stay in backcountry huts or sleep under the stars. Super small groups -maximum group size 11.
On these trips everyone lends a hand: whether it’s cooking over a campfire, collecting firewood or pitching a tent together. There’s nothing quite like wrestling a tent in the wind to get to know your fellow travellers.
No multi-day hiking experience is needed but you need to be a good walker and able to carry a backpack. And yes, occasionally you might just get your feet wet!

This remarkable journey begins with a true ‘off the beaten path’ approach to the pristine waters and golden beaches of the Abel Tasman National Park. We depart this stunning national park by traditional waka (Māori canoe).
The early season trip will be a one-off departure for this season. It includes some of the highlights of our Ultimate South tour and guarantees to be a week of adventure – including stunning hikes and kayaking.
