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

I did the Far North Coastal and Ultimate North. These are very different trips and I loved both of them. Our guides Kat (Far North... More

I did a 6 day hiking and camping tour with Hiking New Zealand - the 'Far North' trip, with Kathy as my guide. A great combination of hard hikes, beautiful swimming places, glorious vistas and the occasional kayaking or sandboarding experience. It's well organised, and while there is some driving in order to get you around the North and to... More

From the initial enquiry and booking right through to the end, HIkingNZ made this easy for me, and an unforgettable experience. The variety of areas visited, overnight places, activities, weather, were all remarkable. Our guide, Simon, was knowledgeable and cheerful throughout, even though he had to cope with (among other things) some appalling driving conditions in torrential rain. "Other things"... More

I did the "ultimate New Zealand" which was 22 days and we travelled both the north and south islands. for me personally it was a very challenging trip but my guides and the rest of the group where all very supportive. I highly recommend this company and this tour. I would happily do it again! I will never ever forget... More

My husband and I recently had a great visit to North Island. We had a series of email exchanges with Malcolm who charted out a wonderful combination of hikes, Maori Culture, visit to a Geothermal site and Wine Country tour in Napier to accommodate our interests. Our guide was Justin and he was simply amazing. He was friendly, respectful and... More

Hiking NZ was great to work with. We had a group of 11 friends and customized a trip to the South Island. We had an amazing trip. Our guide and the company were very flexible and had a plan B and even plan C and D when mother nature did not cooperate. Torrential rains made our planned overnight camping at... More
