Are there any dangerous animals?
No, NZ has only a few small native spiders, the most annoying animal we have are mosquitos, the odd mountain parrot (kea) who may steal your food. We supply you with bug spray
Do I have to do the hikes?
No, you can choose to do as little or as much as you want, you can go chill out at a lake and read a book if you prefer.
What happens if I have an allergy or food tolerance?
We will cater to your needs as best we can, let us know when you book what medical/allergies you have. Therefore your guide can be prepared before the first day.
How fit do I need to be?
It depends on what hiking you plan on participating in, most require moderate fitness but our short walks are easy.
Will I see any Lord of the rings places?
You sure will, there are a few walks that we do where LOTR was filmed.
What do I need to bring?
Sleeping bag, warm clothes, light jacket and a pillowcase, you can either stuff some clothes into it or buy a pillow when you’re here. Bring a hat if you like wearing them, and some walking shoes. Also a day bag. Don’t forget your togs.
Do I need a visa?
It all depends on where you live and how long you plan to stay. Please check www.govt.nz and please check our border security as we are strict with not letting food products in, you don’t want a fine.
Can I stay at a friends/relatives/cute strangers place?
Yes you can, just remember to tell your tour guide, make sure you are back in time for departure in morning.
I am travelling alone?
That’s great! We cater mainly for the single traveller but we love couples and groups too.
How much spending money do I need?
That whole tour can be done on a very small budget, you will need enough money for 3 nights of eating out plus your last night after the tour, otherwise everything else is catered for, but if you are a huge adrenaline junky you could spend well over $500nzd
Do I need travel insurance?
We highly recommend travel insurance while touring New Zealand with us, our go to providers are 1Cover
