A unique opportunity to be totally immersed in pristine wilderness. Hike through lush rainforest in a limestone canyon, wade across crystal clear rivers, explore hidden caves and gaze at the stars as you sleep under a giant rock overhang. Marvel at the ice carved landscape, towering seracs and deep crevasses on a hike up to the terminal face of Fox Glacier. From your kayak look for the regal kotuku (white heron) as you paddle the tranquil Okarito Lagoon.

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.
