In response to the recent government announcement
Friday 20th March 2020
As of Thursday 19th March, New Zealand has closed it's borders to anyone not a citizen or permanent resident until further notice.
As responsible operators, we have an absolute duty of care to our guides, suppliers and the wider public, to do our part to contain the spread of this virus. As an industry, we are navigating this unprecedented event, and the situation continues to change by the day.
As such, moving forward we sadly are cancelling all tours for the rest of this season, with view to be up and running again for the start of next season from October 2020.
We very much understand how disappointing and frustrating this will be for our clients (as it is for us). However, we are bound by the directive of the government, the Ministry of Health, and our commitment to the health and safety of our hikers and guides.
Unique challenges require adaptable solutions, and as such we are striving to be as flexible as possible moving forward even though as a business this is a big blow. We would obviously love for everyone to able to experience a tour with us in the future.
We have contacted all of our booked hikers with information and their options directly.
Thank you all for your support and understanding during this global crisis.
