About this tour

New Zealand, one of the world’s great adventure travel destinations. Explore both islands on this active trip, visiting all the highlights and many lesser visited attractions, while staying at truly wild campsites followed by comfortable lodges. It’s this mix that makes NZ extraordinary: it’s majestic but down to earth, otherworldly yet reassuringly familiar. Along the way, we trek through Jurassic rainforest, hike a glacier, climb volcanic peaks, and enjoy fish and chips on the beach. A range of activities and glacier walking (optional extra) complement the hikes superbly and keep this tour as diverse and exciting as the landscapes travelled.Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:“New Zealand is a big contender on my list and this adventure covers a lot of the country’s highlights in a relatively short space of time. With treks towards Lake Rotorua and visits to the Waiotapu Thermal Reserve to see bubbling geysers, craters and epic sinter terraces, you’ll also head to Milford Sound and cruise into the fiord. It sounds like a trip of a lifetime.”
