new zealand tours - how it works

Easy and Relaxed Adventure Tours

You can choose to see the whole country with us (23 days on the Total Aotearoa) or choose from one of our shorter trips.  

Great Meals

Most meals are included (check the itinerary).  The guides do all the shopping and we help arrange cook groups for meal preparation, cleaning up etc.  On average you would help with the cooking around every four days.  The cook groups are a great way to relax and make new friends whilst chopping the onions and tasting the wine! We always cook outside and usually with stunning backdrops - the best in al fresco dining. 

We cater for most diets eg vegetarian, vegan, gluten free etc.  Let us know at the time of booking if you have special dietary requirements.  Our trailers contain the kitchen and all the equipment we need to prepare tasty and healthy meals. See the food page for more details.

Stunning Accommodation

A shared tent is included in the price and we will be staying in a fantastic combination of commercial and stunning remote sites. There are single and share tent options + the chance to upgrade to cabins if you fancy some rural luxury. The tents are easy to put up, include a mattress and our guides are always around to give a hand. For more information please check out our accommodation page as there are also cabin options available.

Cycle Rides

Cycling is totally optional and around half the people on a trip will hire bikes.  There are rides of all lengths to suit all fitness levels and the guides will give you a thorough brief and all the equipment you need to ensure safe and enjoyable cycle options.  See the cycling page for more detail.

Optional Activities

New Zealand is famous for being the world’s adventure capital.  Every day you'll get the opportunity to try fantastic activities from dolphin swimming to glacier hiking which you can book through your guides on board the bus. See our activities page for more information.
