Active Adventures pairs NZ wilderness with luxury

Short trips of less than 5 days to suit Aussie travellers


In less than 5 days, your client will experience an adventure of a lifetime with every detail looked after.

For many, New Zealand is all about road trips – driving across the country, staying in not-so-great accommodations, getting lost, finding new trails, taking a detour due to weather and eating pub meals one too many nights in a row. For some, this might be just the type of trip they’re looking for.

However, for those seeking hints of luxury, relaxing evenings and returning home feeling rejuvenated – somehow, this doesn’t quite fit the bill. Yet, staying a week in a 5-star lodge doesn’t scratch that wanderlust itch of experiencing new cultures and activities either. It’s time to start thinking outside of the box.

What if travel advisors could be given the secret to combining the two – luxury and adventure? If you have clients keen to get well off the beaten track, yet want their creature comforts come evening, Active Adventures has a solution.

Combine luxury and adventure travel

Take, for example, Active Adventures’ 5-day ‘Takahe’ Great Walks Discovery trip. Guests will hike three of New Zealand’s Great Walks, stay the night not only on the Fiordland Navigator on Doubtful Sound but also in the highly sought-after Milford Lodge Chalets and explore Fiordland’s hidden secrets.

For those looking for an even greater sense of luxury, the 5-day ‘Gecko’ West Coast Adventure gives adventure travel a new meaning. Travelling down the West Coast, guests will meet locals, enjoy little-known hikes and bask in towns that have seemingly forgotten words like ‘stress’ and ‘hurry’. Each morning, guests will wake up in awe of their surroundings, well rested from the depth of comfort present at each of the hand-picked accommodations.

All-inclusive ski holidays – where the crowds aren’t

If clients are interested in a fully planned ski holiday, let Active Adventures do the hard work with their Powder Days’ New Zealand Ski Adventure. From the fascinating views atop Lake Ohau Snow Fields to the hidden valleys of Cardrona and a few incredible hikes mixed in, guests will embark on a ski holiday rivalling those of the Swiss Alps. That’s not all though, with heaps of flexibility, guests will go where the snow is, and by evening, they’ll be drinking mulled wine at premium lodges as guides get ready for the next day’s adventures.

Bucket-list adventures, without a worry

Active Adventures isn’t just about hiking either. If you have clients looking to tick off an incredible biking adventure without having to worry about a single detail, look no further than their ‘Alps to Ocean’ biking trip that brings guests on the renowned Alps 2 Ocean trail from Mt Cook to Oamaru. Besides the breathtaking helicopter ride across Tasman River, guests will come to love the fully vehicle-supported trip with delicious lunches waiting for them at picture-perfect spots and stunning accommodations to call home each evening.

With over 25 years of delivering unmatched service in the most incredible parts of the world, you’ll have complete confidence your client’s money is in good hands. No request is too small or too big for Active Adventures, and if your clients have other destinations or activities in mind, Active Adventures’ team is happy to craft custom itineraries to suit.
