These overland camping tours start or finish in the North or South Island and travel to both Islands of New Zealand during their itineraries.

Camping is the best way to experience the great outdoors of New Zealand in the spring and summer. With a mild to hot climate, the weather can always be relied on to allow for an outdoor lifestyle in New Zealand. We take you to the best camping spots, off the beaten track beside rivers, lakes and forests.  Ture Lord of the rings territory for any fans! These tours offer 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 New Zealand camping tours attract people from all over the globe - the perfect mix of solo travelers, couples, and mates who always end up as great friends. Travelers 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. On our small group overland tours, you have the benefit of a fun and knowledgeable guide with you at all times to teach you about the flora and fauna of New Zealand or Aotearoa as its known by the indigenous Maori meaning 'The land of the long white cloud'.

Evening meals on our overland tours are prepared on 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 travelers - generally one person chops, another looks after veges, another cook and someone needs to check the wine! Getting everyone involved.

These trips are perfect for the more active traveler. We include optional bike rides and hikes nearly every day plus a massive list of things to do. We carry bikes on board so you can cycle any distances you choose on some of New Zealand absolutely classic trails and there is a great range of hikes from short walks to 3-day treks. The tours are suitable for all ages and very popular with groups and individuals. New Zealand is an outdoors paradise and our New Zealand tours are designed to ensure you spend as much time as possible exploring the Worlds best outdoor playground.

If you're interested in exploring New Zealand, if you like action and nature-based tours and if you want to travel with a smallish group of cool people then our overland tour is ideal for your adventure!
