The perfect camping adventure from Auckland to Queenstown. Taking in all the best sites of the North and South Island of New Zealand.
This tour offers some very special camp spots that are strategically placed so we can bring you much closer to nature than you’d ever have expected. Our Flying Kiwi camping tours attract people from all over the globe - the perfect mix of solo travellers, couples and mates who always end up as great friends. Travellers of all ages share a great sense of adventure, an enthusiasm to try and enjoy new things and a genuine interest in experiencing the culture of New Zealand.
Evening meals on our overland tours are prepared in a relaxed and informal rota system. Your great guides will lead things but every 4 or so nights you will be with a team of other budding chefs preparing some great feasts for your fellow travellers - generally one person chops, another looks after veggies, another will cook and someone needs to check the wine! Getting everyone involved.
A few highlights on this tour include cycling sections of the New Zealand cycle trail with heaps of excellent bike rides along coastlines, through forests and past mighty mountains. These can be optional bike rides, you can hike if you prefer. You will be visiting one of the world's new natural wonders - Milford sound, camping out at the foot of the southern Alps, by beaches and by lakes and hiking the amazing Routeburn track and Tongariro crossing. You will also dig your own hot pool on a stunning beach, tuck into fresh crayfish by the coast, visit a UNESCO World Heritage site, discover the wild, rugged beauty of the Catlins region - meet the grumpy sea lions, enjoy stunning sun rises with accommodation on the Pacific coast and the spectacular scenic ferry crossing through the Marlborough Sounds.
