With its incredible, diverse landscapes and largely temperate climate, New Zealand is eternally popular with active travellers. Here are three new trips to recommend to clients who want to burn some energy while enjoying the great outdoors.
On Intrepid’s new nine-day Active Adventure tour, clients can jetboat down the Whanganui river and hike to Taranaki Falls, with adrenaline-pumping options including zip-lining, bungee jumping and kayaking in Abel Tasman national park.
Clients will also experience the hustle and bustle of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. “I’m a huge fan of Taupo,” says Yolanta Rado, destination manager for Australia and Oceania at Intrepid Travel. “It’s got so many activities and some really lovely hikes.”
She adds the trip is suited to most clients. “Our active trips are actually suitable for most people with a standard level of fitness – you certainly don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy them!”
Book it: Intrepid’s itinerary starts from £1,975pp, with departures in 2021. Price includes accommodation and a guide, but excludes flights.
