Yellowstone in Winter - February 2024

Incredible wildlife

"The wildlife was outstanding in winter. Our guides, Steve Rogers and Bryson Shafer were exceptional in taking care of us and making a hard job seem easy. They had our well-being and safety in mind and made our experience fun. We laughed a lot.

Yellowstone in the Winter, A lifetime adventure

"This trip was perfect from beginning to end because of the wonderful guides we had. Steve and Bryson were not only knowledgeable about the park and where to go, what to see, but paid such attention to the extras as having a lunch in the park set out by Bryson. The park is just such an incredible work of God's creations, with wildlife, geysers, mudpots, fumaroles and settings so beautiful a camera just can't capture the site. Our weather was perfect and we were so lucky to see all the wildlife we did. Bisons of course, wolves, big horned sheep, prawn horn antelope, Bald eagle, swans, and a skunk. Thank you again Bryson and Steve, we couldn't have had a better time, and you guys just were the icing on the travel cake!

Greatly Exceeded Expectations!

"This trip was outstanding! I cannot think of a single thing that could have been better. I loved our guides. They were delightful and showed personal care for each one of us. They made every single moment of the trip fun.
Unfortunately I injured my ankle early on and the guides were able to accommodate me and help me continue safely with the activities.

Ultimate North Island Adventure - February 2024

Wow, just Wow!

"I've been impressed with the customer service at Active Adventures from the very beginning- from the basics of setting up a trip to the crazy
tour shifting in March 2020 to changing our 2023 trip to 2024. And our just completed Ultimate North Island Adventure continued to surpass all
that. Our guides, Braden and Katie, were exceptional in every way, going the extra mile to make our trip special and accommodating the varying abilities and desires of the group. There was always a good alternative if you weren't up to the main activity, and their "home town" knowledge added a special personal touch to the tour. They looked out for me and my bum knee, always making sure that things were OK, and finding ways of making it work. And I won't even start on the wonderful food- absolutely amazing, especially the guide prepared spreads with all the NZ specialties! The highest kudos and deepest thanks for their tireless efforts.

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"!
