New Zealand Tours | Flying Kiwi NZ Adventure Tours




A typical day in the life of a Flying Kiwi passenger: Wake up in a spectacular location, enjoy a tasty breakfast next to a lake, a mountains or an ocean with your fellow passengers (and soon-to-be lifelong friends) before deciding how you to spend your day.  Choose from a combination of adventure activities (dolphin swimming, glacier hiking, canyoning or sailing to name a few), breathtaking hikes & inspiring cycle rides.

After a full day of adventure sit around the campfire to enjoy freshly cooked food with a refreshing drink or two.  Head to a local bar or soak up the amazing night skies before going to sleep to the sound of the ocean (tents or cabins). Relax and recharge for more of the same tomorrow! Find out why passengers choose Flying Kiwi.
