The Blue Pools never disappoints. This visit back in April, was extra special, with no international tourists, the place was unusually quiet and we had it to ourselves. If only it had been warm enough for a dip! ... See MoreSee Less
Throwback to our South Island trip earlier in the year. This was an epic ride from sea level up to 1100m into the Seaward Kaikoura Range. We were so lucky with the weather, there had been a cold snap the couple of days before with some snow, which treated us to some amazing views and also a couple of Kms of riding in the snow! This one is on the list for return in summer, continuing along the 4x4 track down into the Clarence Valley for an overnighter! ... See MoreSee Less
Adventurers Travel arranged our Central Otago holiday including cycling the Otago Rail Trail, the Eco Dart tour and the Station to Station Ride from Mt Nicholas to Walters Peak.
Our itinerary worked perfectly. Raechel's ability to provide the appropriate arrangements for our requirements played an important role in the success of our holiday.
We highly recommend Adventurers Travel and look forward to planning our next adventure with Raechel.
Cannot thank Rachel and adventurers travel company enough for organising our Queenstown and Wanaka trip. Great service and extremely helpful.
Adventurers Travel organised the Ocean to Alps for myself and six friends. It was excellent service. Every question I had was answered promptly and we were able to alter our arrangements numerous times with no problems. The accomodation was perfect for the budget I described. Thanks very much.
We are all back home after a fabulous A2Ocean bike trail. We had great weather, no injuries, no problems with bikes and a great variety of accommodation and meeting some very nice people. Our group of ebikers sometimes shared their bikes with those of us who had mountain bikes through some of the hills!
Thank you Rachel for organising such a great trip. All the arrangements with shuttles, baggage drop offs, hiring of bikes and general helpfulness went well. We were very impressed with the level of organisation and friendliness from everyone for the whole week.
Thank you so much Rachel for organising such a great trip for us all. We will contact you again for any future trips. We had such fun.
Some of the accommodation hosts were exceptional but all were of a high standard.. Just superb.
Thanks again from Team Alps 2 Ocean - Di, Robbie, Jenny, Carmel and David
Adventurers Travel helped us plan a huge portion of our honeymoon Oct-Nov 2018 and it was amazing! The highlight was Rachel arranging for a wonderfully warm and cozy bus to pick us up from the end of the Routeburn Track to take us to Milford Sound - this allowed us to save at least a day of travel and hassle, and after tramping for 3 days, we were beyond happy. Rachel's advice helped us maximize our time in NZ which is invaluable - and once we were in NZ, Rachel immediately helped us with any issues that arose - even on a Sunday (sorry, Rachel!). I highly recommend working with Adventurers Travel Company to plan your NZ trip - logistics are so important and Adventurers makes sure everything is covered.
Used the adventures travel company to plan a trip to do the old ghost road. Rachel was amazing at dping this and would highly reccomend. Everything went perfect and without a hitch.
We booked a Heaphy Track MTB bike-ride with Adventurers and it was perfectly organised! From start till end they thought about everything and responded promptly on all our questions. There even was a fair Plan-B in case of adverse weather. The money was well worth it!
I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for some help with all the logistics around an outdoor adventure.
Thank you Adventures Travel Company for organising our recent luxury weekend in Queenstown. From the accommodation to the activities, Rachel 100% understood what we required and delivered on that. We highly recommend Hulbert House in Queenstown for a special unique place to stay. Very happy customers!!
Thank you for the fantastic 2 weeks MTB trip you prepared for us on the South Island this summer!
It was a once in a life time experience for us, 4 Belgian mid-lifers, escaping the European winter and enjoying adventure & MTB fun on awesome tracks like you can't find them anywhere else in the world.
Especially the sun set at the Old Ghost hut was memorable (classified by us as 'the 8th world wonder' :-)).
Of course, NZ has so much to offer!! Unique nature, the best single tracks in the world, a great climate (& sometimes more than one season in a day), friendly people, good & safe infrastructure, nice food, and to our tasting wine that beats the French ....
The itinerary you prepared was well balanced, with long, back to nature, tracks line 'The Old Ghost Road', St James trail (heroic weather conditions!), Lion's trail etc, and more relaxed rides at Tekapo lake, Wanaka lake and in the Gibbston Valley (wine tip: stop at Kinross!!).
Not to forget the non-biking days: the whale watching was a nice start of the 2 weeks after +30 plane hours, the Milford sound cruise along the fjords (on a grey day, it became apparent why this place is a popular film set location) ...
Also the places you selected to stay for the night were offering some nice diversity, with B&B's, appartments, motels and the odd camping site with caravan.
Top fit, or only 'averagely' in shape like us, everyone who likes to bike can explore some of the most beautiful places we've ever seen (and we've already seen a lot).
No doubt, we can recommend Adventurers Travel to everyone who wants to visit NZ - Rachel has the gift to build programs that offer the right level of adventure, rides to anybody's liking and capabilities, and she selects the best locations to start day trips and return to to recover and relax.
Thanks again for 2 weeks that we will never forget Rachel!
We will be back!!

We went to NZ early 2017 for 2 weeks and Rachel was extremely helpful. She arranged rafting on Kaituna river, a Maori experience in Rotorua, kayaking on Milford Sound and an awesome heli-hike on Fox Glacier for us. Everything was well organised and we had no problems whatsoever.
Rachel also provided us with useful tips for hiking trails and always responded promptly. All in all highly recommended and we would always book again.
Thanks for making our trip an amazing experience.
