Gidday! Welcome to New Zealand Trails

We know it can be overwhelming looking for your 'Trip of a Lifetime' so we decided to cut to the chase, and instead of running lots of hiking trips all over New Zealand, we have focused very hard on bringing you one very special itinerary that puts it all together and brings you the very best of our country - the 'World Heritage Walking Tour’.

You’ll know that after your 13 days with us you have missed nothing and in fact seen many parts of New Zealand that other visitors just don’t get to. Our friendly expert guides will lead you into the very heart of New Zealand and on hikes through the most dramatic scenery imaginable. From walking on the world famous Milford Track, the spectacular Routeburn and the mystical Hollyford Valley, you will feel as though you have stepped into a wonderland and that the 'real world' is very far away.

As well as the best walks in New Zealand you’ll love Milford Sound by air, Fiordland backcountry jet boating, kayaking tranquil Okarito Lagoon and a galaxy of glowworms experienced in the most unique way imaginable!

Then at the end of every thrilling day relax in your four star accommodation and savour New Zealand's world class food and wine.

Our 'Kiwi' guides are there to look after you every step of the way. We take every aspect of your safety and comfort seriously during your time with us - from our super comfy vehicles, small friendly groups, delicious cooked breakfasts and hand picked restaurants each evening. We really know what it means to travel well, there's nothing rustic here.

SO… don’t take our word for it, check out the tour and there are heaps of awesome photos in our on-line galleries from recent trips which will give you a great feel for what we do and who comes along.


When you join us on our 'World Heritage Walking Tour', we reckon you'll agree that nobody could do it better. We have put together the very best of New Zealand in this one tour for your ’Trip of a Lifetime'.

Our family of 5 had a blast on this trip. We met great people, our guide was fun and engaging and, of course, the star of the trip is the incredible beauty of New Zealand's South Island. We loved the variety of the activities.

My favourite bits were the Milford track, the helicopter, the lunch after drop off, the walk to the end of island and boat back to lodge, the overnight stay, jetboat out and the Hollyford track.    We have a programme in the UK call
