South Island Nature and Heritage Tours

We want to share with you the New Zealand that few locals see. Out of the way places of rugged wild beauty. Introduce you to locals who have special stories to tell about their unique way of life. In the evening we share our stories over dinner and strike up new friendships.

Tour guides Will and Rose Parsons

Our guides share their knowledge of the history, geology and ecology of the places you will visit. This is a genuine conversation not a one way commentary.

We are building sustainability into every area of our business. Driftwood Eco Tours supports and enhances the communities and environments we share with you. For example every time we take a tour group to d’Urville Island we give $300 to the community’s stoat eradication trust.

Areas we can share with you by special permission from the owners include the Rainbow and Molesworth Stations, Cape Campbell, Muzzle Station and the Wairau Lagoons. We can also drive you to remote shingle screes to see delicate alpine flora with a knowledgeable field guide. Bespoke are our specialty.
