New Zealand Tours | Flying Kiwi NZ Adventure Tours



Tour the best of New Zealand - here's a typical 24 hours with Flying Kiwi!

You will wake up in spectacular locations everyday.  Enjoy a tasty breakfast next to lakes, mountains & oceans with your fellow passengers (and soon to be lifelong friends) before deciding how you to spend your day.  Choose from a combination of adventure activities (dolphin swimming, glacier hiking, canyoning or sailing to name a few), breathtaking hikes & inspiring cycle rides.

After a full day of adventure sit around the campfire to enjoy freshly cooked food with a cooling drink or two.  Head to a local bar or soak up the amazing night skies before going to sleep to the sound of the ocean (tents or cabins) - that's a typical day with Flying Kiwi! Find out why passengers choose Flying Kiwi


We run summer and winter tours.  Summer tours run from October - April when the weather is at its best and winter trips run through July and August when the ski fields are pumping. 

Our big trip (the Ultimate Explorer) takes 28 days and is the perfect way to see and do everything.  All our shorter tours are short sections of the Ultimate Explorer tour.  For more information click here.
