Tours for international tertiary and secondary education groups

We partner with visiting schools, universities and colleges from around the world to give your group a down-to-earth taste of our beautiful outdoors and unique Māori culture. We also partner with language schools based in NZ who want to share a slice of the best of Aotearoa with their students.

Experiencing New Zealand with us involves backpacks and teamwork. Whether it’s trekking the Tongariro Crossing, feeling the sand of our glorious beaches beneath your toes, soaking in a natural hot stream or getting stuck in to cooking meals; coming together and being involved in every element of the trip is part of the Adventure Specialties DNA.

Our accommodation ranges from lodges, youth hostels, campgrounds and marae across the country and these locations can arrange sightseeing, outdoor and Māori cultural experiences to suit your group’s interests and needs.

We have connections with iwi throughout Aotearoa and can incorporate a wide range of cultural experiences; from the most polished tourism presentations to deeply personal, grassroots engagement as you stay on a home Marae with the local tangata whenua (people of the land).

Experience New Zealand with us and you will receive:

  • Tour hosts who are qualified outdoor instructors
  • Full menu plans and food provision
  • Supply of all necessary equipment for outdoor experiences
  • Unique cross-cultural learning opportunities
  • All transport and accomodation needs

“Kia kaha, Kia māia, Kia manawanui (Be strong, be brave, be steadfast.).”
