New Zealand Hiking Holidays

Guided and Independent Walking Tours to NZ's Wilderness Areas

New Zealand has some of the most pristine swaths of wilderness in the world, in large part because of its remoteness and stringent conservation measures. Almost one-third of New Zealand’s uninhabited areas in North and South Islands are dotted with well-equipped huts and paved with well-maintained tracks that wind through a diverse landscape of breathtaking beauty and astounding geology.

Enjoy leisurely strolls, moderately active ‘tramping’ or physically demanding hiking holidays in New Zealand through volcanic landscapes, coastal and beech forests, alpine valleys and tussock lands, rugged mountain peaks, golden beaches, secluded bays, and riverine and lake ecosystems. Whether you are yearning for contemplative walks or up for more challenging hikes, alone or in the company of like-minded outdoor enthusiasts with a trained walking guide, there's always something for everyone of different fitness levels and vacation times in New Zealand’s unspoilt outdoors.

Hike the Great Walks of New Zealand in both the North and South Islands of NZ. Hiking tours include the Milford Track, Queen Charlotte Track, Hollyford Track, and Abel Tasman Coastal Tracks as well as the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
