South Island Nature and Heritage Tours

Immerse yourself in the real New Zealand that few have the opportunity to see. You will be guided into locations of rugged, untamed beauty and splendid isolation. Along the way you may meet the remarkable people who choose to work and raise their families in these often challenging but always rewarding landscapes. In the evening we share our stories over dinner and strike up new and lasting friendships. This is what we are all about.

Your local guide will share their knowledge of the local history, often with stories not found in the history books as they are personal accounts. For those with an interest in geology and ecology there is much to explore and share along the way.

You will be travelling safely and assured of Tiaki, ‘conservation’ and social responsibility thanks to our carefully planned sustainability polices.

Relationships we have built up with landowners will give you unique permission to access some of New Zealand's most intriguing places of stunning beauty in areas such as Muzzle Station, D'Urville Island by 4WD vehicle.

We now offer private tours for individuals, clubs, friends or family groups. 

Bespoke eco tours are our speciality, feel free to contact us with your own time frame, special interests or abilities.
