New Zealand Adventure Tours: Unique cycling, hiking & adventure tours

For the kind of traveller who wants to experience something a little different - go "beyond the tourist trail", hang with the locals, meet new people and make lifelong friendships.

Flying Kiwi stands alone, not just in New Zealand, but globally for it's unique style of trip. Overnight camping in remote locations and National Parks get you amongst the amazing landscapes that have made New Zealand famous through movies such as Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit and causes travel publications such as Lonely Planet and Wanderlust to continually rate our home as their number one destination.  You will explore some of the best places on the planet (lost beaches, dense rainforest, isolated peaks, turquoise lakes) on easy cycle and hiking trails, by kayak, cave, white-water raft, or "bungy". Travel on our custom built vehicles in a safe, relaxed, environment with like-minded travellers who become friends for life!
