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!
