New Zealand Sustainable Tourism and Eco Travel

New Zealand Sustainable Tourism and Eco Travel

Tourism in New Zealand relies on us maintaining the pristine environment, stunning scenery, and indigenous culture that sets New Zealand apart.

Plan Your Tour

We attract visitors from all corners of the globe and ensure that we provide quality and sustainable travel experiences.

As a traveller, you have choices and opportunities to be a responsible visitor. Through our actions, we have demonstrated a solid commitment to sustainable practices. This means we are attentive to vital areas such as energy efficiency, waste management, recycling, minimizing water usage, and supporting the local community. We are proud participants of the Tiaki Promise. 

As one of New Zealand's best nature tour operators, we will guide you to unique places and share our extensive ecotourism knowledge with you. Our wildlife tours can include bird watching, whale watching, marine mammals, hiking (called tramping in New Zealand), and alpine flora and fauna. Enjoy dolphins, penguins, seals, and albatross in their natural habitat. Try trekking, kayaking, and biking while observing the variety of New Zealand wildlife. 

New Zealand offers a top selection of eco and nature tourism attractions which are perfect for viewing New Zealand's beautiful scenery. With its many kilometres of coastline and numerous offshore islands, New Zealand offers one of the world's best opportunities to view marine mammals and pelagic sea birds. 

New Zealand has a fantastic range of wildlife observable in its natural environment.
