We're endorsed as a sustainable business
We've been awarded a GOLD Sustainable Tourism Award. Qualmark independently evaluates tourism operators in New Zealand annually to ensure quality across all business areas. A Gold Award is evidence of one of the most high quality, safe and sustainable experiences in New Zealand, with the delivery of exceptional customer experiences an integral part of everything we do.
We are proud to support the Tiaki Promise, a commitment to care for New Zealand. We teach our guests to care for land, sea and nature, treading lightly and leaving no trace. We ensure they travel safely. We encourage respect of culture and travelling with an open heart and mind.
We have been approved by the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC) to take guided hiking tours in public conservation areas, meeting their environmental and health and safety standards. We pay fees to DOC that go towards maintaining our walking tracks and wider conservation efforts to protect New Zealand's flora, fauna and environment and keep it beautiful.
