Ultimate North Island Adventure - February 2024

The answer is always yes

"I'm not usually a "tour" type of traveler. I joined the North Island Adventure trip because I was traveling solo through NZ and thought Active Adventures would help get me to places I couldn't get myself. Over the ten days, there was not a moment I questioned my choice. Our guides -- Katie and Branden -- were all about generosity of spirit, pride, and knowledge about the country they lovingly call home. Every activity, accommodation, and meal was seamlessly organized and full of joy -- and in some cases mischievous surprises. There was even laughter on the long bus rides. What I really appreciated the most about the trip was the flexibility and thoughtfulness. I never felt like the "extra" as a single traveler and I, or any other of my fellow trip mates, wanted to change up our day or try something different, the answer was always "yes". Should you join an Active Adventure trip? My answer will always be "yes"!

Excellent logistics handling

"For those considering if booking with Active is worth it... Well, in short, yes. They absolutely handle the logistics during the trip and handle them well. The booked transfer services, lodging, and guides were excellent and worth the cost. My particular trip was to Patagonia. Doing privately would / could have been challenging and potentially frustrating. There are a lot of complexities in Patagonia and the Active team absolutely handled that very well.

New Zealand South Island Class Tour

"This was our first active type tour and we are SO glad we chose Active Adventures! Everyday was memorable, well-planned, active fun. We feel like we hit all the highlights of the South Island. At the end of the day we often said, "Wow that was the best day! That was probably the highlight, only to be followed by another amazing day that was even better." We loved everything and we definitely plan to do another Active Adventures tour!!

Patagonia Hiking Adventure - January 2024

Patagonia W-trek

"Fantastic trip that is one for the books. It was filled with exciting worthwhile activities such as biking to the caves, sea kayaking in Lake Grey, glacier hiking (extra cost not included in package) and of course hiking. Trekking was challenging at times but the summits with the views were well worth it. This was my second trekking trip with Active Adventures and once again the trip leader (Zac) and guides (Andrea, Camilla and Lucy) were top-notch. Excellent interpersonal skills (where does Active Adventures find these people?!!!) and knowledge of the local flora and fauna and areas. They quickly brought a diverse group of people together into a cohesive unit. A lot of laughs and mutual support.

Food was very good with a mix of nice restaurants and refugio dinners. Accommodations in the hotels and refugioes were as billed - clean and comfortable..

Shout out to Big Foot outfitters at Lake Grey. Their staff led the sea kayaking and glacier hiking. Friendly, professional guides with updated equipment. I'm so glad I splurged on the extra cost for the glacier hiking. It was an experience of a lifetime and worth every penny.

Ultimate South Island Adventure - January 2024

Beth from Georgia, U.S.A.

"The entire 14-day experience was incredible from start to finish. Our guides, Liana and Kelly, were superb! Their professionalism, knowledge, experience, meal preparation, hike selections, music playlist, mythical stories, and friendliness made for a memorable adventure. Their love for New Zealand was palpable and generated much excitement within our group. Experiencing New Zealand through them was a gift I will cherish for years. While our safety was their number one priority, they ensured we got the most out of every activity. I would hike with Liana and Kelly and Active Adventures again!

Ultimate South Island Adventure - January 2024

Fantastic trip !

"What a great way to see the best that the South Island of New Zealand has to offer! Everything about the trip was great, from the itinerary itself to the excellent staff. This was one of our best ever holidays- totally full-on, so not for the lazy or beach lovers, but it packed so many great experiences into 2 weeks. Highly recommended.

Classic South Island Adventure - January 2024

South Island Adventure

"Our 8 days with Active Adventure was more than we could have imagined. Our guides were Holly and Noah. Holly was a fantastic driver, storyteller and organizer. Noah was our chef. He created delicious breakfasts, snacks, picnic’s and suppers. Not only can he cook, he can hike mountains with ease and educate us on the flora. Our tour guides were companionate and adaptable for each one of us on the team. My husband was unable to participate do to illness. They made him feel apart of the group and also respected his need to lay low. Highly recommend Active Adventures.

Classic South Island Adventure - January 2024

Fantastic trip, in spite of the weather

"Holly and Noah were nothing short of amazing. They were great. When the weather cancelled two of our events, the alternatives they came up with were GREAT. Holly's stories on the bus rides were really enlightening and entertaining. We learned a bit about the history, Maori culture, and the geography. Noah was also a great source of information, especially out on the trail. Noah should be a chef. The meals were superb. The boat ride in the fiord on the last full day was truly outstanding (again, in spite of some intermittent cold and rain).
