Mosque shootings in Christchurch New Zealand March 15
We at New Zealand Trails are devastated by the evil that has visited our country. It’s difficult to convey our disgust at what has happened. Terrorism has no place here, or anywhere for that matter. Our hearts go out to the victims & families affected by this outrageous crime.
New Zealand is a big country, 1000 miles long, and the mosque shootings were in a very small part of one of our towns. If you're concerned about your personal safety, we believe it’s perfectly safe to travel here, that the statistical evidence is overwhelming - if you’re coming to New Zealand, it’s as safe here yesterday as it was two days ago. Despite yesterday’s outrage, New Zealand is still a safe country.
All our trips are running as usual, and, of course, all our guests on trips running right now are quite safe. If you’re booked to arrive soon, grieve for the victims, by all means - but there’s no need to change your trip. When we behave out of fear, terrorists win - and while we’re no experts in predicting crime, we see no reason why anti-Muslim terrorist events should affect our trips in the slightest.
