Get a group of four or more together and take a journey to secret locations where rare wildlife play and exquisite scenery takes over. Enjoy the serenity of beautiful mountain ranges, crystal clear lakes and calm fiords while hiking, kayaking, cycling and camping through the deep south. Hike into the rugged mountains of Fiordland National Park to beautiful alpine lakes with stunning mountain views. You'll kayak beneath massive sea cliffs in Milford Sound while watching out for basking seals and leaping dolphins. Explore the spectacular Catlins coast, with beautiful beaches, luxuriant rainforest, fossilised trees, and rare species of sea lions, dolphins and penguins. Hike up the rocky slopes of the Ohau Range and look down on turquoise glacial lakes. Gaze in awe at the contorted forms of glaciers and the snow capped peaks of Aoraki / Mount Cook. Explore the remarkable (but extinct) volcanic topography of Mount Somers with its waterfalls and narrow canyons.

This is a sample itinerary of what we can offer for custom groups. If you have the group we can craft a trip that suits you.
