From start to finish, Hiking New Zealand was ideal to work with. Anne made it seem so easy to custom-design a family trip, even when I kept pestering her with emails to adjust this or that detail. In the end, everything worked out exactly as we had hoped and I'm so grateful. Thank you Anne! Within a few minutes of... More

Every detail was taken care of. I loved not having to think about driving, food, lodgings, pit stops, trail maps, etc. Hiking New Zealand even offered to supply rain gear (no charge), which I took them up on and it saved me from having to check a bag. They provided excellent information in advance so I was well prepared with... More

Immersion therapy in New Zealand, with enthusiastic and knowledgeable local guides! This 14 day trip circles most of the island, with one, two, or three day hikes, bikes, and boating thrown in. Wonderful for those willing to sleep out under the stars and searching for unspoiled nature. Thanks Eigill, Dan, and the local helpers.

We had a great experience hiking the northern loop in Tongariro National park, despite bad weather conditions. The scenery was spectacular, the hikes challenging enough but not crazy and with definitely less crowd than the Alpine crossing. Because of bad weather conditions, we were able to experience both the camping and the Hut accommodations, which was a treat. Our guide... More

The itinerary of this 6 day trip from Auckland (Far North Coastal Wanderer) is covered below by 'hilary 12017' so I won't repeat it. I did this trip over New Year with Guide Kath and 11 others. Kath was brilliant; supportive, flexible, caring, knowledgeable and she kept an eye out for all of us. Wow would I love her energy... More

We (2 adults, 12 year old daughter, 10 year old son) had an awesome time on the Family Northern Explorer trip with Hiking NZ in January 2017. Booking process was easy, staff answered any questions in a timely manner. The trip itself was well described in the brochure and was accurate. I think there was probably a bit more driving... More

My family's experience with Hiking New Zealand was amazing! Everything from the booking process all the way through the end of the tour. The office staff was quick to respond to my initial inquiries and excited to help without being pushy. They asked who I was and what I was hoping to do/see. After looking through the brochure and consulting... More
