Trekking Information

Off Track Adventures will work closely with you to customise a trek / hike that meets your requirements, whether you are after a peaceful break from the chaos of every day life or want an opportunity to challenge yourself in a wild environment under the safe eyes of one of our experienced guides.  Aotearoa / New Zealand has some of the world’s most amazing natural beauty and all within relatively close proximity to modern conveniences.

Trekking is available year round in New Zealand, although the best time for trekking is over the summer and autumn months of December through March; unless you want to experience winter snows, when the months of July and August provide the coldest period?

Our Wilderness and Adventure Treks provide it all, focusing on pristine locations selected for their uniqueness.  As you walk through amazing landscapes or linger in a place you do not wish to leave, our guides will provide you with the personal space that you may seek, or will share with you the skills and knowledge that could stay with you throughout your life.  We assure you that these skills and experiences will assist in guiding you through the many other challenges that may lie ahead in your life.

It is your life and we invite you to live it.

Off Track Adventures’ Trekking Guides are:

  • Very experienced in New Zealand’s terrain
  • Friendly, professional, and safe
  • Passionate about the New Zealand outdoors and sharing that with you

On arrival in New Zealand, when filling out your New Zealand Customs Declaration Form, be sure to declare your walking boots and camping gear. Also make sure that your boots and other camping gear are cleaned spotlessly.  If you fail to declare these items, along with any fresh food, or have unclean footwear, you may be fined NZ $200.  It is helpful to keep your footwear packed in the top of your bag, so you can easily find it when you arrive at Customs. Please ensure that you have some New Zealand cash on you to cover any contingencies on arrival.
